Changi Airport Calls Tender for Third Ground Handling Licence

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Tuesday, 17 November 2009

Changi Airport Group is calling a tender for a third ground handling licence at Singapore Changi Airport.

 The tender covers the provision of passenger handling, apron handling and cargo handling services. These services are presently provided by two agents – Singapore Airport Terminal Services Limited (SATS) and SIA Engineering Company; and Changi International Airport Services (Private) Limited.

A third ground handler is likely to provide the 85 airlines currently operating at Changi Airport with more choice and a more competitive ground handling market with potential benefits in terms of service quality, range of offerings and price.

“Over the last few months, CAG has received expressions of interest from a number of parties regarding a third ground handling licence at Changi Airport. This has been prompted by two main factors – the divestment of SATS by Singapore Airlines and improving business conditions in the aviation market. There was especially keen interest from those who have experience servicing low-cost carriers,” said Mr Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group.

“Changi Airport Group is always keen to provide our airline customers with more choice of suppliers. This tender is consistent with that approach. We are keen to support the entry of a new ground handler at Changi with the right mix of experience, innovative solutions and financial resources. This will enhance Changi Airport’s competitiveness and provide airlines with greater choice.”

The tender will be conducted in two phases with the formal expressions of interest phase closing on 16 December 2009.

In phase 2, shortlisted bidders will be required to submit detailed bids including their business and financial plan. The licence will be for a period of five years and the successful bidder is expected to commence operations by mid-2010.

CAG has said it will evaluate the business proposals of each bidder based on a set of defined evaluation criteria, such as the company’s track record and how it plans to drive innovation and build its business and operations at Changi Airport.

In the first nine months of 2009, Changi Airport handled 26.7 million passengers, 1.18 million tonnes of cargo and 177,000 flights.
