Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) today announced that it will be offering low-cost ground handling services via Asia-Pacific Star.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of SATS, Asia-Pacific Star will provide point-to-point ground handling services such as passenger, ramp and baggage handling, and aircraft interior cleaning with shorter turnaround time to low-cost carriers (LCCs) at Singapore Changi Airport.

Asia-Pacific Star will begin operating at the Budget Terminal from April 1. It will provide passenger, ramp and baggage handling services to Tiger Airways and Cebu Pacific at the Budget Terminal.

“Together with the low-cost inflight catering unit launched recently, SATS will now be able to provide integrated airport and food services for its LCC customers,” said SATS in an SGX announcement. SATS is the leading provider of airline ground services and inflight solutions at Changi Airport.

Clement Woon, President and Chief Executive Officer of SATS, said: “We aspire to be the ground handler of choice for LCCs at Changi with our differentiated services.  At the same time, we are very excited with Asia-Pacific Star’s kick-off to access the growth of the LCC segment at Changi and the region.”
