We also operate Singapore’s cruise terminal Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore, together with our partner Creuers del Port de Barcelona, the terminal operator of Europe’s leading cruise homeport.
The history of SATS can be traced back to the very beginning of commercial aviation in Singapore.
Ground Handling Services came to form when a Malayan Airways Limited (MAL)’s Airspeed Consul took off from Singapore Kallang Airport, on the first of three scheduled flights a week to Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Penang.
By 1955, Kallang Airport was handling 300,000 passengers annually. As demand for air travel spiked, Kallang Airport did not have sufficient capacity to support the growth. It was eventually shut down and the new Singapore International Airport was relocated to Paya Lebar. In 1972, Singapore Airlines (SIA) was formed and SATS was established as a separate, wholly-owned subsidiary of the airline.
In 1981, SATS’ operation was relocated to Changi Airport along with the opening of the new airport. The team welcomed the airport’s first flight, SQ101, which landed on 1 July at 7.00am.
Since then, SATS has been a core pillar of support in the operations of Changi Airport, leading to the many successes that the Airport has achieved over the years.
By 1986, SATS was serving more than 10 million passengers a year.
