Airshow to shut down Singapore airspace

Dates and times are given for the temporary closure of airspace in Singapore during February.

The Singapore Airshow 2018, to be held during the first half of February, will once again feature exhilarating flying displays set to thrill visitors. But in order to facilitate the displays, the airspace around Singapore’s busy Changi Airport will be closed to non-participating aircraft during certain specified time periods between February 1 and 11.

The airport advises passengers to check with their airlines for the latest information on their flight timings. Due to the airspace closures, some flights arriving and departing Changi may encounter delays, the airport says.

The airspace closure times, covering practices, rehearsals and the actual flying displays, will shut down one of the world’s busiest airports (62.2 million passengers in 2017, up 6%, and 373,200 aircraft movements, up 3.5%) are:

Thursday, 1 Feb 1030-1110; 2 Feb 1030-1125; 3 Feb 1030-1145 + 1400-1420; 4 Feb 1030-1150; 5 Feb 1030-1125; 6 Feb 1230-1355; 7 Feb 1130-1255; 8 Feb 1130-1220; 10 Feb 1130-1215 + 1430-1515; 11 Feb 1130-1210 + 1430-1515.

Aviation leadership summit
The Singapore Airshow bills itself as a “global marketplace and networking powerhouse for the world’s aviation community”. The biennial event is also a platform for high-level conferences for leading players in the global aviation industry, such as the Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit, or SAALS.

This summit takes place this year on February 4-5 and is jointly organised by the Singapore Ministry of Transport, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, the International Air Transport Association and Experia Events.

Bringing together stakeholders in aviation including senior executives of airlines, airports, aircraft manufacturers and air navigation service providers as well as government representatives and civil aviation authorities, the focus will be on Reimagining Aviation’s Future.
