Smooth operations at Terminal Two with entry of budget airlines to terminal
Budget airlines operating out of Singapore's Changi Airport Terminal Two saw smooth operations on the first day.
This after the Budget Terminal closed its doors early this morning.
Staff from Changi Airport were also ready, to help anyone who was lost
The biggest player -Tiger Airways marked the first day of operations with some fanfare as it also celebrated its 8th birthday.
With the move to a full terminal, passengers now pay a higher service charge-which goes into the price of their ticket.
But that's not an issue for some.
"Can use the mrt- direct to come here."
"It's cleaner and more spacious."
"It's more fun, more things to see and more things to do. "
Budget airlines operating from Terminal Two, may also face higher costs- such as for the use of aerobridges.
Tiger Airways says its still firming up details with authorities.
But it's confident it'll still be able to offer passengers value for money, as it stands to achieve higher productivity at the new terminal.
The airline's Group Chief Executive Director Koay Peng Yen elaborates.
"Hopefully bigger volumes for Tiger. It's not just a gross cost, but also how we can improve our efficiency and productivity and help us reduce the costs as well to be always ahead of the game."
