Singapore Changi Airport announces plans for Terminal 4 and additional aircraft parking

Singapore's Changi Airport Group released (08-Feb-2012) initial plans for the development of Singapore Changi Airport terminal 4 and the construction of additional aircraft parking stands at the airport. The 160,000sqm terminal is planned to serve full service and low-cost airlines and have capacity for 16 million passengers p/a, raising the airport's overall capacity to 82 million p/a. The terminal will primarily handle narrowbody aircraft and will be designed to enable quick turn-around of services. The airport also plans to construct a new access road and carpark to serve the terminal. The airport plans to construct parking for 17 narrowbody and nine widebody aircraft on a 38 hectare site south of terminal 3. The terminal project is estimated to cost SGD600 million (USD484 million) and SGD680 million (USD549 million) will be required for parking stand construction, security systems, ancillary buildings, roads, drainage and additional airfield infrastructure. Construction of terminal 4 is scheduled to commence in 2013 and be complete in 2017. Changi Airport Group CEO Lee Seow Hiang said, "Our infrastructure investments over the next four to five years lay the groundwork for us to continue delivering a great Changi Experience and attracting more airlines to fly to Changi Airport."
