The Budget Terminal will be closed later this year to make way for a new and improved terminal to cater to future demand of a burgeoning budget airline industry.
Airlines operating out of the terminal will operate from the main terminals at Changi Airport.
A local news source said Tiger Airways will operate from Terminal 2, as will Berjaya Air and SEAir.
Changes have also been made at Terminal 2 to accommodate additional flights, including adjustments to aero-bridges.
Airline currently operating out of the single-storey Budget Terminal include Tiger Airways, Firefly, Berjaya Air, Cebu Pacific and Tiger Airways.
However, industry watchers told the news source that budget carriers may face higher costs if they start operating from main terminals.
Budget Terminal started operations in 2006 and was recently expanded to accommodate seven million passengers.
According to the news source, more people are using budget carriers in their travels. These flights account for
28.5 per cent of flights at Changi Airport.
It may take more than two years for the new terminal to be ready, experts told the local news source.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
