September 2014 Flight Service Changes

September marks the end of the busy summer travel season in the northern hemisphere.  This also means that airline timetables will be adjusted in terms of timings, frequencies or aircraft assignments.  Local carriers will also introduce new services.  The transfer of the first wave of carriers from terminal 1 to terminal 3 is also expected to be completed during the month.
