Besides monitoring current air travel trends, we recognise the need for long term planning to develop the full potential of our air hub status and keep ahead of possible future developments.
Our longstanding approach of capacity planning ahead of demand has enabled Changi Airport to consistently deliver a high standard of service to passengers, even during peak hours.
Pre-COVID-19, we had announced plans to build Terminal 5 to cater to the longer-term growth of air travel. In light of COVID-19, we have announced that construction of T5 would be delayed by at least two years, in order to conduct a thorough review on the impact of COVID-19 on air travel, which will in turn guide the capacity, design and timeline of T5.
We are also investing in futureproofing Singapore’s air traffic management (ATM) capabilities through research and development. These advanced ATM capabilities will enable Singapore to continue providing Air Navigation Services (ANS) in the Singapore flight information region (FIR) at the highest levels of safety and efficiency, even amidst increasing operational complexities.
