Changi Airport Group (CAG) is to increase aeronautical fees for both passengers and airlines to help fund part of the Changi East development and the upgrade and refurbishment of existing terminal infrastructure and security facilities.
The Passenger Service and Security Fee (PSSF) for all passengers departing from Singapore Changi Airport will increase by S$2.50 (US$1.89) per annum to S$30.40 (US$22.98) from July 2018. There will be no change in the PSSF levied on transfer and transit passengers, who now pay S$6 (US$4.54) when departing from the hub.
Changi East compromises a three-runway system and a network of tunnels and systems to allow for the transfer of passengers, baggage and airside vehicles within Changi East and between existing terminals and Terminal 5 itself.
Ongoing work as part of the Changi East development includes land preparation works, the development of a canal network to prevent flooding, and paving works to extend runway 3.
Other development works taking place at Changi Airport leading to 2024 include upgrading of the Skytrain and baggage handling systems, and the renovation Terminal 2. It is hoped these changes will alleviate congestion during peak hours and improve the airport experience for passengers.
