Changi Breaks Ground for Ter­mi­nal 4

Business Traveler (USA) - - TAKE OFFS & LANDINGS -

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.
