VALUAIR Pte Ltd, a company set up by former Singapore Airlines (SIA) executives with the aim of running a budget carrier, has applied for a licence to operate commercial services out of the city-state. 

Albert Tjoeng, a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, which runs Changi Airport, said yesterday aviation officials had met with ValuAir to discuss its plans. 

“ValuAir has submitted an application for an air operator certificate,” he said. “We have asked them to provide more information such as the aircraft used, maintenance and general support programmes.” 

According to a local press report, ValuAir is keen to operate flights out of Changi rather than Seletar Airport, now mainly used by charter companies and private jets because it is too small to handle large planes. – Reuters
