A new passenger terminal building (PTB) will be built at Singapore’s Seletar Airport, in a bid to improve its passenger handling capacity and customer services.
Seletar Airport is located in the northeastern region of Singapore, and managed by the Changi Airport Group (CAG).
The new PTB is a part of the larger Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP), and will help Seletar Airport to enhance its general aviation activities, while also providing better services to the passengers as a private and efficient business aviation gateway to Singapore.
Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) director general Kevin Shum said: "Selestar Airport will continue to be a valuable complement to Changi Airport.
"The new passenger terminal building will enhance the capacity of the airport. It will strengthen Singapore Aviation.
"The new investment will also enable more opportunities to thrive in the SAP, reinforcing Singapore’s position as a vibrant aviation hub."
After the new building is opened on the eastern side of Seletar Airport, operations at the existing PTB on the western side will be ceased.
Turboprop aircraft operations will be moved from Singapore’s Changi Airport to Seletar Airport.
This shift will provide Changi Airport with increased capacity for jet aircraft operations.
CAG CEO Lee Seow Hiang said: "Seletar Airport has seen upgrades to various airside facilities in recent years.
"The new passenger terminal will allow us to better cater to the specific needs of the airport’s different users and provide a more seamless travel experience."
Construction on the new PTB is expected to commence in October, and be completed by the end of 2018.
