Market overview

The aviation market in Singapore has consistently been one of the key players in the global aviation industry. As a major aviation hub in the Southeast Asia region, Singapore has continued to establish its reputation as a center for excellence in air travel, logistics, and aeronautical innovation.

Singapore’s main aviation facility is the award-winning Singapore Changi Airport, which is known for its world-class amenities, efficient operations, and excellent connectivity. The airport has consistently been ranked as one of the best airports globally and is a major hub for international travel.

As of 2023, Changi Airport has four operational terminals and a passenger capacity of 80 million. The airport also features the Jewel Changi Airport, a multi-use complex that integrates retail, dining, leisure, and airport facilities in a unique environment.

Singapore Airlines is the country’s flag carrier and one of the world’s leading airlines. Known for its premium service and innovative offerings, Singapore Airlines is a member of the Star Alliance and operates an extensive network of flights to over 130 destinations globally. The Singapore Airlines Group also includes regional subsidiary SilkAir, low-cost carrier Scoot, and Singapore Airlines Cargo.

Other airlines operating in Singapore include Jetstar Asia, which is a low-cost carrier, and numerous international airlines that provide connectivity to destinations worldwide.

The government has implemented various initiatives to support the aviation sector’s growth, including the development of Changi East, an ambitious project aimed at enhancing airport capacity and creating a vibrant aviation ecosystem that includes original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) service providers, training and research institutions, as well as various aviation support businesses. Names like Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Boeing, and Pratt & Whitney are already present  here.
