Description:
Changi Air Base (East), or Changi East Complex is a new facility extending the facilities of Changi Air Base, the existing facilities hence renamed Changi Air Base . Built on 2 square kilometre site of reclaimed land, the new base is located approximately 2 kilometres east of Singapore Changi Airport and approximately 1.5 kilometre west of Changi Naval Base. Ground breaking took place on 15 July 2002, it was officially opened on 29 November 2004. The runway (02R/20L) length is approximately 2,748 metres (9,015 ft).

Location

The 145 Squadron can save as much as five to seven minutes transit time, which means they also save on fuel and further reducing costs.

In the future, the runway will be extended for the expansion of Singapore Changi Airport.
