The Wait is over! The long awaited new Terminal 4 at Changi Airport is finally opening the doors to the public for a sneak peek from 7Aug to 20 August 2017! Invitations are open to Singapore residents to visit Terminal 4 (T4) even before operations begin.
Construction of T4 started in early 2013 and was completed in December 2016. The 195,000 square-metre, double-storey terminal can handle 16 million passengers a year – this is about 70% of the handling capacity of Terminal 3 (T3) although T4 is just half the size of T3. Designed with a boutique interior décor approach, T4 is set to redefine the way passengers travel, through the creative design of the terminal’s layout, streamlined clearance processes as well as the way it leverages technology and innovation for convenient passenger processes and improved staff productivity.
“The Open House visitors will be among the first to learn about and experience the innovations and ‘wow’ features at T4 – facial recognition technology, integrated duty-free shopping, kinetic art displays, a Heritage Zone, and specially curated sculptures, among many others,” said Ms Poh Li San, Vice President, T4 Programme Management Office.
