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 Civil Aviation Authority and a statutory board under the Ministry of Transport of the Singapore Government. Its head office is located on the fourth storey of Terminal 2 of Changi Airport in Changi.[1]



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).
