Singapore Changi Airport has reopened and refurbished its Terminal 2 (T2).
The opening followed a three-and-a-half-year transformation journey, which will in turn restore four-terminal operations at Changi Airport.
According to the Changi Airport Group, the T2 extension project increased Changi’s capacity by five million passengers per annum (mppa), bumping the airport’s overall handling capacity to 90 mppa.
Mr Tan Lye Teck, CAG’s programme director for the Terminal 2 expansion project, emphasised the technological direction of the refurbishment.
Teck said: “Changi Airport has always been pushing the boundaries of airport service and innovation while staying ahead of the latest trends in digital as well as retail and dining offerings.
“With T2, we sought to enhance the passenger experience, bringing together a modern terminal inspired by nature with immersive digital experiences, innovative technology, as well as transformative retail and dining concepts that create a sense of place.”
