Singapore’s Changi Airport Group (CAG) is set to reopen passengers at Terminal 4 (T4) on 13 September.
Featuring 21 gates, the new terminal will have the capacity to accommodate 16 million passengers annually.
CAG, the airport operator, has been carrying out operational readiness tests with airlines and airport partners since May.
Plans for T4’s September launch were announced in June, though the exact date was not revealed then.
The check-in to boarding process at the new terminal is said to be completely automated. The terminal also features 3D screening technology, which enables travellers to keep laptops and tablets in their bags while screening.
Furthermore, T4 will have duty-free shopping in the transit area, as well as restaurants, food courts and food kiosks.

The airport group plans to add more shopping and dining options at T4 in the months to come.
CAG said that free shuttle bus services on the landside and airside will be available, which will transport passengers and visitors from T4 and the other terminals.
Cathay Pacific’s CX739 flight from Hong Kong will be the first to arrive at T4 on 13 September, and the first departure from T4 will be CX716 to Hong Kong.
Recently, CAG unveiled design revisions to its Terminal 5 (T5) project to make it pandemic-ready and more sustainable.
The project, first announced in 2013, was stalled for two years owing to the pandemic.
