Staff employed by ground-handling firm Sats were caught embroiled in a violent fight on the tarmac at Changi Airport, on Sunday (17 Mar). No flights were delayed as a result of the brawl, according to Sats.
A video capturing the incident is going viral online, with over 50,000 views collectively. In the video, two female Sats employees can be seen raining blows on one another and pulling at each other’s hair as a number of other employees try to stop the fight.
Sharing the video on social media, Facebook user Patrick Tan wrote: “Hoot ah!! Anyway happened at Singapore Changi Airport but not locals.”
Another Facebook user Zhou Guo Chong shared a clip of the video and wrote: “Ha-ha! The reputation of the world’s first airport has been ruined by this gang of “talent”. (sic) Even if they dismiss them, they will still become a laughing stock of the world. (sic) Forget to say that this is what Lee Kuan Yew is proud of – Changi Airport”
Sats has since said that it has suspended the two women who were seen fighting, as it is investigating the fight. A spokesman told the Straits Times:
“We are conducting a thorough investigation of the incident. We have zero tolerance for any breach of conduct at the airside. Staff in question will be dealt with in accordance with regulations.”
