For those of your travelling to Singapore, don't be surprised if your flight is landing at the Seletar Airport and not the Changi. The renovated Seletar Airport has recently started operations at its new passenger terminal today after almost an entire decade. All operations have been transferred from the old terminal to the new one. It is also ready to handle scheduled commercial flights after meeting the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization on airport design and operations.

The new terminal will now handle scheduled commercial flights and all scheduled turboprop flights starting December 1, 2018. Passengers can look forward to checking in via four check-in counters after which they can relax at the comfortable departure gate room. There will also be the Seletar Business Aviation Centre, which happens to include a separate drop-off area and a dedicated check-in lounge area for business aviation passengers to relax in. The new terminal also features more space for arrival immigration, baggage claim and a meeters-and-greeters hall to provide a warm and hassle-free reception.

Public bus service 102 provides travel to the new terminal, with the bus stop located and accessible via a walkway. The bus service will provide connectivity from the Seletar Airport area to Hougang Central Bus Interchange, Sengkang MRT station and Jalan Kayu. 

Prior to the opening of the terminal, trials involving over 2,000 participants were carried out since June 2018. This ensured the readiness of systems and processes allowing for further updates and changes to be made if required. Checks were made in the processing of departing and arriving passengers, systems for check-in, baggage handling, and immigration and security clearance. And although it doesn't have the massive luxury of Changi Airport, which is often called the world's best airport, we don't mind a change.
