    Travellers flying out of Changi Airport to pay higher fees, charges

    ANN/THE STRAITS TIMES – Passengers flying out of Changi Airport will have to pay more in airport charges from November 1, as international air travel continues to recover from the effects of Covid-19.

    Passengers on flights originating from Changi Airport currently pay a departure fee of SGD52.30, comprising a SGD35.40 passenger service and security fee collected by Changi Airport Group (CAG), as well as a SGD6.10 aviation levy and a SGD10.80 airport development levy collected by the government.

    With the fee hike announced yesterday, the total departure fee will go up by SGD6.90 to SGD59.20 from November 1, and subsequently increase to SGD62.20 from April 2023 and SGD65.20 from April 2024.

    Passengers whose air tickets were issued before November 1 will not pay the higher fees and levies, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and CAG in a joint statement. There will be no change to the departure fee for transit passengers, who will continue to pay SGD9 in airport charges for each flight.

    Meanwhile, airlines will also have to pay more in aircraft parking and landing fees, CAAS and CAG added.

    The statement said the fees and levies charged will go towards CAG’s operations and current infrastructure upgrading of terminals and future development plans, and the air hub development and regulatory functions of CAAS.

    Airport charges at Changi were last revised in 2018.
