THE new passenger terminal at Seletar Airport, which will open at the end of 2018, will have a capacity of 700,000 passengers annually.

Covering a gross floor area of 9,500 square metres, the two-storey terminal will be situated at the eastern side of Seletar Airport. Of that, 500 sq m will be used to serve business jet passengers.

It is being built at a cost of S$50 million.

The new building will have an enlarged capacity compared to the existing terminal which handled some 26,700 passengers last year. This will also enable turboprop operations to be moved from Changi Airport to Seletar when the new terminal is ready.
