TER­MI­NAL UP­GRADE

Jetgala - - BRIEFINGS -

Sele­tar Air­port, which ser­vices pas­sen­gers of char­tered busi­ness flights and pri­vate jets in Sin­ga­pore, will have a new pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nal build­ing by the end of the year. The ter­mi­nal has re­ceived its Tem­po­rary Oc­cu­pa­tion Per­mit and prepa­ra­tions are on track to be­gin op­er­a­tions by the end of this year.

The new ter­mi­nal build­ing has a floor area of 10,000 sqm – more than six times larger than the cur­rent ter­mi­nal. Con­structed and fit­ted out at a cost of about S$80 mil­lion, it is de­signed to han­dle 700,000 pas­sen­ger move­ments a year, in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the growth in pas­sen­ger traf­fic in the com­ing years.

Man­aged by Changi Air­port Group, the new pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nal fea­tures an en­larged de­par­ture and ar­rival area, de­signed to han­dle sched­uled com­mer­cial flights. The de­par­ture area will have four check-in coun­ters, six im­mi­gra­tion lanes, two se­cu­rity screen­ing sta­tions and a spa­cious gate hol­d­room, which can com­fort­ably ac­com­mo­date about 200 pas­sen­gers. The check-in, im­mi­gra­tion and se­cu­rity screen­ing coun­ters are po­si­tioned in an in­tu­itive straight route through the de­par­ture hall, en­abling a quick and stress­free board­ing process for pas­sen­gers. The ter­mi­nal’s in­te­ri­ors are de­signed to cre­ate a re­laxed and com­fort­able feel­ing for pas­sen­gers.

The new ter­mi­nal will also have a sec­tion for pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling on char­tered busi­ness flights and pri­vate jets, with its own wait­ing lounge area. On the air­side, pas­sen­gers will be able to board their flights con­ve­niently with three air­craft park­ing stands next to the ter­mi­nal. This al­lows pas­sen­gers quick and ef­fi­cient ac­cess to the air­craft, en­abling greater op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency and faster air­craft turn­around time.
