(AP) Singapore plans to add a fourth terminal to its international airport, boosting the number of passengers it can handle to 82 million a year as low cost airlines burgeon in the region.

Changi International Airport said Friday that construction of the 600 million Singapore dollars ($485 million) terminal will begin in the fourth quarter of this year and be completed by 2017.

It said the terminal will mainly handle narrow-body aircraft and be built to cater to full-service airlines and low cost carriers.

Singapore closed its much maligned budget airline terminal last year, putting extra pressure on its other terminals.

Low cost airlines have blossomed in Asia the past few years as incomes rise and demand for affordable travel increases.

Some 51.2 million passengers passed through Changi last year.
