CAAS To Allow Aviation Companies To Defer Fee Payments

Singapore carriers and the airport operator will be able to defer about S$140 million worth of fees in total by up to one year

          The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) will allow Singapore carriers and the airport operator to defer payment of certain fees by up to one year. The deferment is an additional support measure to ease cash flows and provide assistance to the aviation sector.

2        This follows an earlier announcement on 18 February 2020 that CAAS will provide a 50% rebate on its regulatory fees for new and renewed Certificates of Airworthiness, which is estimated to save the Singapore carriers about S$6 million in total.

3        The deferment will apply to the fees for the Certificates of Airworthiness which all Singapore carriers operating scheduled flights pay for their aircraft fleet, as well as fees for licences to provide air services on scheduled journeys under an air services agreement.

4        It will also apply to the fees that the airport operator pays for aerodrome certification and their licence to operate, as well as part of the fees for the provision of air navigation services.

5        The deferment will apply to fees due between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021.

6        This additional support measure complements the Government’s Enhanced Jobs Support Scheme and the Enhanced Aviation Support Package to support our aviation sector to ride through the COVID-19 pandemic.
