Changi Breaks Ground for Terminal 4
Singapore’s Changi Airport has broken ground on construction of its new Terminal 4, being built on the site of the former Budget Terminal. The terminal is a two-story, 2 million airport agencies.
The new T4 makes extensive use of a suite of fast and seamless travel (FAST) initiatives. Self-service kiosks and automated options will be offered at check-in, bag drop, immigration clearance and departure-gate boarding.
The design of T4 draws inspiration from an orchid petal. Besides creating a sense of openness, greenery and natural lighting – a Changi Airport signature –will enhance the ambience of the terminal. And based on input from the public, the T4 transit area will feature local culture and heritage-theme highlights, such as retail stores with facades of old Peranakan shop houses. T4 will feature more than 160,000 square feet of space dedicated to shopping and dining, comparable to the range and variety offered at Changi Airport’s other terminals.
The terminal is projected to be completed in 2017 and will bring Changi Airport’s total annual passenger capacity to 82 million.
