This would be the first adjustment to the aviation levy, which was introduced 13 years ago in 2009.
The aviation levy funds air hub development and regulatory functions of CAAS, authorities noted in a media release, adding that the aviation regulator’s functions are expected to grow as it works to rebuild Singapore’s position as a global air hub post-pandemic.
Passengers whose air tickets were issued before Nov 1, 2022, will not pay the higher fees and levies.
“The Landing, Parking and Aerobridge (LPA) charges for all flights operating at Changi Airport will increase by 2 per cent on Nov 1, 2022, and increase by another 1 per cent each year on Apr 1, 2023, and Apr 1, 2024, as earlier announced,” said the authorities.
“In addition to supporting CAG’s operations, the PSSF and LPA charges also go towards development plans and infrastructure upgrading of existing terminals which had continued throughout the pandemic.”
