SINGAPORE: There will be a new passenger terminal building at Seletar Airport by end-2018, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) on Thursday (May 19).

The building will be constructed at the eastern side of the airport and construction is expected to begin in October this year, after the tender for construction was called on Wednesday, both parties said in a joint press release.

The new passenger terminal building will provide improved facilities and amenities, and will allow the airport to accommodate growth of traffic. As part of the larger Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP), the new building will also support growing general aviation activities, it added.

When the new facility opens, operations at the current passenger terminal located on the western side of Seletar Airport will cease. Similarly, turboprop aircraft operations will be shifted from Changi Airport to Seletar Airport once the building is ready, and this will help to free up capacity for jet aircraft operations at Changi Airport.
