They have announced the construction of Terminal 4.

Construction of Changi Airport's T4 to begin
Posted: 08 February 2013 1436 hrs


SINGAPORE: Construction of Changi Airport's Terminal 4 (T4) is expected to begin soon, with a total estimated budget of S$1280 million.

S$600 million is set aside for the construction of the T4 building on the old Budget Terminal site. It will be a two-storey building with a gross floor area of about 160,000 square metres.

The remaining S$680 million will be for the construction of additional parking stands, supporting airfield infrastructure, security requirements, specialised airport systems, ancillary buildings and road and drainage works.

In a media statement released on Friday, Changi Airport Group said T4 will be designed with the flexibility to meet the operational needs of both regional full service and low-cost carriers.

T4 wil primarily handle narrow body aircraft and be designed to enable quick turnaround of flights.

The transfer of passengers and baggage between T4 and the other terminals will also be provided for.

In terms of feel and ambience, T4 will be comparable to Terminals 1 and 2.

Unlike Budget Terminal, T4 will have aerobridges at its boarding gates.

Departure and arrival immigration control and pre-boarding security screening will be centralised for more efficient deployment of manpower and equipment.

T4 will have more kiosks for self check-in, self bag-tagging and self bag-drops.

Bag sorting at T4 will be fully automated. The baggage handling system will be equipped with the latest technology to enable heavy and odd-sized bags to be handled with ease even by older workers.

The number of aircraft parking stands will also be increased.

A 38-hectare land plot south of Terminal 3, which houses the airport nursery and reservoir, will be converted into an aircraft parking area to house 17 narrow-body and nine wide-body aircraft stands.

An overhead vehicular bridge across Airport Boulevard will be built to enable buses and other airport vehicles to move from T4 to the aircraft stands.

Major drainage works, including the construction of a new reservoir, will be undertaken to prevent flooding in the event of heavy downpour.

A new road will be built to facilitate outgoing traffic from T4 onto the East Coast Parkway.

A multi-storey car park with spaces for 1,200 vehicles will be built next to the terminal.

T4 is expected to be ready in 2017.

Wonderful indeed... I wish I could see something like that at the arrivals level of my airport in Manila (at least the future one).

Was that flight full by the way? I would imagine since AI operates an A330 for SIN-MAA.

@Koresh hmmm that seems pretty full, but not really full (with all seats taken)

@Vrooms that's a really modern and sleek MRT station for Changi Airport. Gotta love the symmetry of escalators and the tall ceilings!

Now that truly wants me to visit Singapore soon... I really love that ceiling at T3! Hopefully, other airports can find creative ways to make their terminals more attractive to even more passengers.

I love Changi! Been through it 5 times and can't wait to return

The MRT station didn't look as spectacular in real life as it does in that picture though.

Better land at T3, mate! The airport's marvelous, though, overall. I mean, I haven't been to SIN yet, but observing the interiors of the terminal, it makes me want to go to Singapore really soon.
