The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (Abbreviation: CAAS; Chinese: 新加坡民航局, Pinyin: Xīnjīapō Mínghángjú; Malay: Penguasa Penerbangan Awam Singapura) is Singapore's national aviation authority and a statutory board under the Ministry of Transport of the Government of Singapore. Its head office is located on the fourth storey of Terminal 2 of Singapore Changi Airport in Changi.[1]

Overview[edit]

The CAAS regulates civilian air traffic within the airspace jurisdiction of the Republic; it is also the sole government agency to maintain the operational efficiency of the airports in Singapore and to engage civilian air-service agreements with air-service operators.

CAAS also operates the CAAS Air Traffic Control Service, which serves to ensure faultless movements of civilian aircraft at Singapore’s airports and in the Singapore flight information region (FIR).

The CAAS also issues revenue stamps to pay for the passenger service charge on flights.
