The ceiling treatment turns out better than I expected.
It looks pretty much completed, maybe they can open it earlier than Jan 2008?

Singapore never opens anything until its been tested like a lot of times so I think it will stick to its early 2008 opening.


I just noticed the pillars supporting the roof are brown in colour like the tree trunk, and the ceiling with the dangling skylights though white in colour looks like the leaves of the tree. Interesting effect.

Changi's T3 ready to open by next January
SIA is the only confirmed tenant as other airlines are still considering move

By Aviation Correspondent, Karamjit Kaur

PREPARATIONS are in full swing for Changi Airport's Terminal 3 to open next January or February.


READY TO GO: Construction of the main T3 building is complete, while systems and flight tests will begin as early as the middle of the year. -- CHEW SENG KIM

Already, construction of the main seven-storey building, including three basement floors, has been completed.

And 6.5km of train tracks for the $135 million People Mover System connecting all three terminals have been laid. The network, to have separate tracks running through the restricted and public areas, will transport passengers between Terminals 2 and 3 in just three minutes.

Even the slip road from Airport Boulevard to Terminal 3 has been built, and trees have been planted along its length.

The CAAS is expected to award key contracts, including those for security systems to screen passengers and baggage, in the next few months.

Also hotly contested is the terminal's space for retail and food and beverage outlets.

Singapore Airlines (SIA), the only confirmed tenant of Terminal 3 so far, will move more than half of its operations out of Terminal 2 where it is currently housed, spokesman Stephen Forshaw said.

Affected services include long-haul flights to the United States, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.

Passengers flying to the carrier's other destinations - mainly in the region - are likely to continue using Terminal 2
, he said, adding that SIA will work closely with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to 'minimise delays and maximise convenience' for those who have to move between terminals to catch connecting flights.

SIA's partial move out of Terminal 2 will make room for other airlines that now operate out of the 25-year-old Terminal 1.

Emirates has no plans to migrate from Terminal 1. British Airways and Qantas are also 'highly unlikely' to move to the recently upgraded Terminal 2, said a joint spokesman for the two carriers.

Other carriers, including those under the Star Alliance group of airlines such as United Airlines, Swiss Air, Asiana Airlines and All Nippon Airways, are still contemplating the offer made by the CAAS some months ago.

Mr Joseph Chia, United's station manager for Singapore and chairman of the Airline Operators' Committee representing more than 50 carriers that fly here, said the plan is to move as a group, if at all. He said: 'We share the same software systems for check-in and other services, so moving together will allow us to continue building synergies.'

Other factors - lounge access for passengers, for example - also need to be considered before a final decision is made.

A CAAS spokesman said it was now looking into allocating the airlines among the three terminals, and that it would do this based on the projected growth of SIA's operations, requests from other airlines and the need to balance traffic demands among the three terminals.

The Straits Times understands Terminal 3 is expected to handle more than 12 million passengers in its first year, based on an average 5-per-cent annual increase in total traffic. The total traffic handled by Changi last year was more than 35 million passengers.

To minimise glitches on opening day, systems and flight testing will begin as early as mid-year.

looks like SQ flights from the ASEAN+China region will still be using Terminal 2. oh well maybe if you're from the said region you can still use Terminal 3 if you're going to North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Northeast Asia using Singapore Airlines.

Great to see the opportunity to create a beautiful environment on a massive scale wasn't squandered. Too many terminals around the world pay scant attention to flooring, ceilings, columns, foilage. There is a tendency to simply clad in a durable clean material.

Congratulations, this looks fabulous.

SINGAPORE CHANGI AIRPORT TERMINAL 3 OPENS 9 JANUARY 2008

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport's new Terminal 3 will begin flight operations from 9 January next year.

Transport Minister Raymond Lim announced this after a tour of the terminal on Tuesday.

Over the next eight months, trial flights and rigorous tests on critical airport systems such as baggage handling will be conducted to iron out any kinks.

Members of the public will get a sneak preview of the new terminal at an open house that will be held in November and December to coincide with the year-end school holidays.

The S$1.75 billion terminal will be able to handle 22 million passengers annually.

This will bring the total annual passenger capacity of Changi Airport to about 70 million.

Changi's Terminal 3 to start ops on Jan 9
By Karamjit Kaur

CHANGI Airport's new $1.75 billion Terminal 3 is completed. It will start operations on Jan 9, but before that, rigorous testing and final preparations will take place.



Over the next seven months, airlines, airport agencies, ground handlers and shop tenants will move in to the new terminal, built to handle 22 million passengers a year.

Flight trials will start in July, and the public can look forward to an open house later in the year.

Announcing the Jan 9 opening date after touring the terminal yesterday was Transport Minister Raymond Lim. He said: 'This is an important milestone we have achieved. Terminal 3 will help us to strengthen and consolidate our regional hub position and at the same time enhance customer experience.'

At 380,000 sq m, Terminal 3 is Changi's biggest. Terminal 2 is 358,000 sq m, and Terminal 1, just over 280,000 sq m. Together, all three terminals will allow Changi to handle about 70 million passengers a year. This will keep it ahead of regional airports like Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok, which handles 45 million passengers, and in step with emerging air hubs like Dubai International Airport, which also plans for 70 million passengers by next year.

To out-do the competition, T3 will offer visitors 100 shops and more than 30 food and beverage outlets, as well as a 350-room airport hotel with a swimming pool, restaurants, conference rooms and a spa, among other facilities.

This is in addition to the combined 160 shops and 80 food outlets in T1 and T2.

T3's anchor tenant will be Singapore Airlines, which plans to move more than half its operations from Terminal 2, where it is currently housed.

Passengers who have to move between terminals to catch connecting flights can transfer via the airport's new People Mover System.

The $135 million system, comprising 6.5km of separate train tracks running through the restricted and public areas, will take passengers between Terminals 2 and 3 in three minutes. Another train will run between Terminals 1 and 3.

T3 boasts unique design features, including skylights on the 300m by 200m roof which are equipped with 'intelligent' reflectors that let in light but block out heat depending on the amount of sunlight and cloud cover. Artificial lights come on automatically when necessary.

At yesterday's event, Mr Lim was asked for an update on Singapore-Malaysia air talks.

He said that when transport officials from both sides met earlier this month, there was consensus that air links between both countries should be expanded, but there was no talk of a possible time frame for the opening.

Such details will be ironed out during the next round of official talks, which The Straits Times understands is likely to be in September, at the earliest.

On conflicting reports in Malaysia recently on the subject, he said: 'Different people say different things, so I think it is best to wait for the formal talks itself.'

Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said in Kuala Lumpur last week that the lucrative Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route is unlikely to open up before the Asean deadline of unrestricted capital-to-capital flights by the end of next year.

Two days later, Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes said at a conference in Singapore that he remains optimistic the route will be opened to low-cost airlines - possibly as soon as September.
