The budget terminal at Singapore’s Changi Airport will soon be shutting down for renovations. The 5 budget airlines currently operating from the budget terminal – Berjaya Air, Firefly, SEair, Cebu Pacific and Tiger Airways – will begin to move to Terminal 2 as early as April 2012.
The construction of the new Budget Terminal is expected to take about 2 years. The current Budget Terminal can handle only 7 million passengers per year, and renovations are necessary to accommodate the growing number of budget airlines operating out of Singapore. Currently, about 28% of all flights from Changi Airport are with budget airlines.
