SINGAPORE: The new passenger terminal building at Seletar Airport has commenced operations, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan said on Monday (Nov 19).
The two-storey, 10,000 sq m terminal opened its doors to its first business passengers, with scheduled turboprop flights operating from December.
Passengers will enjoy enhanced facilities and an easier transition from air to land, Mr Khaw said in a Facebook post.
Mr Khaw added that 34 trials involving more than 2,000 volunteers were carried out to test the check-in, baggage handling and immigration and security clearance facilities and processes.

Other new amenities are a garden courtyard and a hall for those waiting to receive flights.
