SkillsFuture Study Award for
Air Transport
Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)
Sector Overview

As a key enabler of our economy, the Air Transport industry has shaped Singapore into a global air hub connecting the world, attracting high value-add investments and talent to Singapore. The industry’s leading airport and airline companies are world-class leaders in their respective fields.

The growth of air travel in the Asia-Pacific region presents exciting opportunities for Singapore, with our carriers poised to receive over 150 new aircraft in the coming years. Aside from additional infrastructure for Changi Airport, the development of a third runway, and a mega-terminal 5, we are also expanding industrial land for more air cargo and aerospace companies.

With these exciting plans, we need to groom a specialist workforce equipped with in-depth air transport-related skills and expertise to lead the Air Transport industry into its next phase of growth.
