Singapore Changi Airport unveils new Terminal 4


Singapore Changi Airport has unveiled its upcoming Terminal 4 (T4), which will serve as the first facility at the airport to provide end-to-end fast and seamless travel (FAST) to its departing passengers.

Built on a total floor area of 225,000m2, the new development includes the two-storey terminal, car parks and a taxi deck.

Despite being half the size of Terminal 3 (T3), Changi Airport’s T4 is designed to handle 16 million passenger movements each year, which is two-thirds that of T3.

The terminal features a 300m-long visual-transparent Central Galleria, which is 18m wide and 23m high, separating the public zone from the transit area.

The concept offers a clear view from the check-in hall through the transit area and, at some locations, to the boarding gates.

Owing to its compact size, the facility will have centralised areas for departure and arrival immigration, in addition to pre-board security screening.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) T4 Programme Management Office vice-president Poh Li San said: “T4 was conceived with the vision to rethink travel, push boundaries and break new ground.

"Through innovative concepts of operation and terminal design, we sought to address our capacity needs as well as improve efficiency and manpower productivity."

T4 will accommodate nine airlines and feature Cathay Pacific's First and Business Class Lounge and SATS PPG Blossom Lounge, which will be managed by SATS and Plaza Premium.

With the new terminal, the total passenger handling capacity of the airport will be increased to 82 million each year.

The T4 development project was completed after three years of construction.
