Travellers flying from Changi Airport will face increased fees from Nov 1
Passengers arriving, transiting or transferring to Changi Airport will not be affected.
Those who intend to travel abroad from Changi Airport will have to pay increased fees starting Nov 1, announced the Changi Airport Group (CAG) in a press release on Thursday (Sep 15).
The increased fees comprise of the Passenger Service and Security Fee (PSSF) and Aviation Levy (AL). The PSSF will see a $5 increase to $40.40 and the AL will see a $1.90 increase to $8. In total, the increased fees and levies would amount to $59.20.
Only passengers who depart from Changi Airport to another destination will be affected by the increased PSSF and AL fees. The AL will not affect passengers who are arriving, transiting or transferring to Changi Airport.
This increase was initially announced in 2018 but was suspended due to the pandemic. It was supposed to rise, in stages, from 2020 to 2022.
Currently, the PSSF is set to increase further by $3 on Apr 1, 2023, and again on Apr 1, 2024. The AL will remain fixed at $8.
According to CAG, the fees and levies will go towards upgrading its terminals and “future development plans”, as well as the air hub development and regulatory functions of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS).
