Terminal 1, Changi Airport's oldest and busiest terminal, is giving travelers and visitors more to do and enjoy now that a $500 million overhaul is more than 85 percent completed.

More shops and restaurants have been added, among other enhancements in the upgrade of the terminal, home to budget carriers AirAsia and Jetstar as well as key airlines like Qantas.

The work, which began in May 2008, will wrap up by the first quarter of next year, said Changi Airport Group (CAG) spokesman Ivan Tan.

The makeover will benefit the growing number of travelers using T1 in recent years.

In the first half of the year, T1 - the smallest of the three main terminals - handled more than 30 per cent of Changi's 22.4 million travelers.

The airport, a key hub in the region, did not provide a breakdown for the other terminals.

Before Terminal 3 opened in January 2008, Changi's traffic was more or less equally split between Terminals 1 and 2.

But with low-cost carriers growing much faster than full-service airlines, and two of Changi's three biggest budget carriers housed in T1 - Tiger Airways uses the Budget Terminal - the 30-year-old terminal has been filling up.

The trend is expected to continue in the coming months.

In the six months to the end of June, the low-cost market grew by 25.2 per cent compared with the figure in the same period last year.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
