Changi Airport to raise passenger service fee

2 Aug 2012

Singapore’s Changi Airport will increase its passenger service charge from the current $S13.90 (US$11.16) to $S19.90 (US$16) from April 2013. The price represents a 43 percent jump – S$6 (US$4.82)

This will apply to all tickets bought after November 1, 2012 for travel on or after April 1, 2013.

Passengers departing from Changi must also pay a $S8 (US$6.42) passenger security service charge and $S6.10 (US$4.90) aviation levy, all in all totalling $S34.00 (US$27).

Changi Airport Group said the hiked fee would help fund new investments to cater to growing traffic and meet increased costs. Officials are planning more than S$2billion (US$1.6billion) of expansion and enhancement at the aviation hub in the next two years. 

In July this year, Changi unveiled a newly renovated Terminal 1, after carrying out about S$500 million (US$400 million) worth of improvements (see story here), adding a total of 22,000 sqm to the terminal, and providing faster immigration and a wider viewing deck.

Changi handled 46.5 million passengers in 2011, almost an 11 per cent increase on the previous year.
