Changi mulling over need for fourth runway
It is part of a larger study on runway capacity, even as 3rd strip is planned
CHANGI Airport is studying the need for a fourth runway to cater to more flights in the coming decades, even as plans are finalised for a third landing and take-off strip.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is seeking consultants to look into the feasibility and benefits of a fourth runway, The Straits Times found out.
When contacted, a CAAS spokesman said the authority is undertaking a study to determine technical and other details for the implementation of a three-runway operation.
She said: "We will also be taking the opportunity to assess the potential incremental benefits that additional airport infrastructure in the future could bring about."
