Simple Flying - Jake Hardiman
Despite being small in size, the country of Singapore represents a key Asian location when it comes to air travel. Its primary airport, Changi, is one of the busiest hubs in world aviation, and its strategic location makes it popular with transiting passengers in all directions. However, did you know that Singapore also has a second airport by the name of Seletar?
Seletar has undergone several changes over the years.
These have been particularly prevalent in the 21st century, with the airport touted as a means of relieving pressure on Changi. Most notably, 2011 saw a runway extension, followed by a refurbishment project in 2015. November 2018 then marked the opening of a new terminal.
Despite the Changi Airport Group's plans to use Seletar to move smaller planes away from Singapore's main airport, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has limited commercial operations at the facility. As of June 2021, Seletar's only scheduled flights served Kuala Lumpur's secondary Subang (SZB) airport.
