Posted on 08 May 2013

The 5th airport terminal to be ready in 10 years’ time.

Singapore’s fifth airport terminal will be ready in the next decade, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew announced this on yesterday at a dinner recognising Changi Airport’s airline partners.

The fifth terminal, known as T5, will also bring the airport’s passenger handling capacity beyond the annual 85 million, which is what four terminals are expected to handle.

To further deal with even more arrivals from abroad, plans are underway to build up to nine airports. T1 to T9 will be fully functional in 20 years’ time.

All these plans boil down to a simple fact: Singapore is welcoming transitory foreigners at an ever-increasing rate, even if they do not take up residency.

Yao Si Leh, a Singaporean, said he is looking forward to the vibrant influx of non-locals: “I hope I die before 2033.”

    By the way, you may like to perform a query of some MALES in relation to this article:

    1) ” david sandison pricewaterhousecoopers heaven lad taxi “.

    2) ” ed peter duxton airport works luggage “.

    By the way, the Swiss-born (citizen?) MALE’S [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMxTcRs3KDU ] full name is edouard fernen peter.

    Speaking of MALES, do NOT start me going what happens if a Singaporean couple has a disproportionately HIGH number of MALE children with SOLELY Singaporean nationality amid PLUMMETING birth rates.

    All best,
