Airport Info and Airlines
Airport and Airlines Info Singapore:
Changi Singapore, Senai Johore Bahru Malaysia
Since budget airlines have arrived in Asia the new competition has changed the way established airlines have dealt with their customers. Changi Airport recently opened a budget airline terminal where you can expect to walk to your plane like in the good old days of traveling. But amazingly there will be also a luxury version with VIP treatment!
The new players in the field are operating regionally and offer some fairly cheap tickets. However, it is advisable to read the small print to get the price right for what is called low cost tickets!
Feedback from travelers using Asian budget airlines is mixed. Some of them use brand new planes and are operated by experienced pilots snatched from larger organizations. Others suffer budget constraints and red tape when they apply for landing rights in neighboring countries.
In general budget airlines are heavily used by the new customers of the century: Chinese nationals exploring the world. While their excitement is understandable fellow passengers wonder why they are not used to the restrooms Travelers are also reporting frequent delays on departure or arrival. We advise you to just lower your expectations and give it a try!

Changi Airport is one of the top airports in the world and is an amazing place to pass the hours between connecting flights.
