Singapore tenders new airport terminal
A tender for the construction of the new PTB has been called and construction is expected to begin in October this year. The new PTB, which will provide improved facilities and amenities, will enable Seletar Airport to accommodate growth of traffic.
As part of the larger Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP), the new PTB will also support growing general aviation activities. At the same time, it will enhance Seletar Airport’s offering as a private and efficient business aviation gateway to Singapore.
When the new PTB opens, operations at the current PTB located on the western side of Seletar Airport will cease.
With the growing demand for air travel and increased traffic at Changi Airport, there is a need to ensure the optimisation of the use of resources within the entire aviation system in Singapore.
When the new PTB at Seletar Airport is ready in end-2018, turboprop aircraft operations will be shifted from Changi Airport to Seletar Airport. The shift will help to free up capacity for jet aircraft operations at Changi Airport. ■
