Jetstar Asia, Changi Airport has yet to finalize the deal; the airline will continue to operate from Q1
“We are extremely disappointed that the Changi Airport Group has chosen to unilaterally announce a plan to relocate the Jetstar Group to Terminal 4 at Changi International Airport, before an agreement has been reached. he stated at the time.
“A joint study was only agreed last week and this announcement is a total disregard for that agreement and the impact a move would have on our customers, staff and operations.”
Jetstar Group then added that until an agreement was reached, it had no intention of moving.
The Jetstar Group operates primarily from Terminal 1 at Changi Airport, with arrivals limited to Terminal 2.
On August 30, Transport Minister S Iswaran said CAG and the Jetstar Group were in talks to ensure Jetstar’s operations remain efficient and its passengers’ needs are met.
“It’s important to do this well rather than do it quickly,” Mr Iswaran said at the time.
“If that means taking a bit more time, but making sure that all the key elements are well taken care of, to the reasonable satisfaction of all parties involved, then I think that should be our priority. And I think that it is the basis on which the two parties work together.”
According to CAG’s original plan, the Jetstar Group was to move to Terminal 4 on October 25, joining airlines such as AirAsia, Cathay Pacific and Korean Air.
