Having received its Temporary Occupation Permit, Seletar Airport’s $80 million new passenger terminal is on track to be opened by the end of this year.

Measuring 10,000 square metres, the two-storey terminal is six times larger than the current one and will be able to handle 700,000 passenger movements a year, according to a media release from Changi Airport Group (CAG), which manages the terminal.

The move to open the new terminal comes in anticipation of a growth in passenger traffic, said CAG.

Once opened, Firefly airlines – which currently operates 20 daily turboprop flights to and from Subang, Ipoh and Kuantan – will shift its operations to Seletar Airport.

The new terminal will feature four check-in counters, six immigration lanes, two security screening stations and a spacious gatehold room that is capable of accommodating around 200 passengers. Over on the airside, passengers will be able to board their flights via three aircraft parking stands.

Those travelling on chartered business flights or private jets will also be able to make use of a separate waiting lounge.

“We look forward to providing passengers with a fresh experience in terms of comfort and convenience, when the new terminal starts operations around the end of the year,” said Kho Su Lim, deputy general manager of Seletar Airport.
