Terminal 1 to get 'Tropical City' makeover

CHANGI'S grand old dame is getting a $500 million extreme makeover.

With Terminal 3 operational and T2 just upgraded, it is time for T1 1 to get a fresh new look.

Upgrading works will start in May and take three years to complete, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, which on Thursday announced that the contract had been awarded to Takenaka Corporation.

To ensure minimal disruptions to passenger flow and airline operations, works on the 27-year-old terminal will be done in phases - as was the case when T2 underwent a $240 million upgrading.

The significantly higher bill for T1 is because of more extensive works that need to be done and the higher cost of construction now.

Areas to be upgraded include the exterior facade and the departure kerbside, as well as the arrival and departure halls.

As part of the upgrading works, services and facilities offered will also be improved and the building expanded to make space for more shops and eateries.

CAAS director-general and chief executive officer Lim Kim Choon said on Thursday: 'Many of us have fond memories of Terminal 1, which is synonymous with the birth of Changi Airport in 1981.'

He added: 'With the recently renovated Terminal 2 and newly opened Terminal 3, Terminal 1's face lift will ensure that all passengers at Changi Airport can enjoy the same exciting, vibrant and enjoyable Changi Experience.'

Please, please, please, don't destroy what's left of the T1's viewing gallery. T2's and T3's viewing galleries are barely viewable during the day and totally viewless of the apron at night. Please leave at least one viewable gallery at the airport. Visiting the airport will never be the same again without able to see planes up close and also the take offs and landing. But what I heard is they are going to make it the same style of T2 and T3. Haiz....

New Terminal 4 for Changi Airport, S$10m expansion for Budget Terminal

Posted: 06 March 2008 1715 hrs


SINGAPORE : Minister of State for Transport Lim Hwee Hua told Parliament on Thursday that Singapore will have a Terminal 4 at Changi Airport.

The news comes just two months after Singapore opened the S$1.75 billion Terminal 3 in January.

Meanwhile, the Budget Terminal will undergo a S$10 million expansion to increase its handling capacity.

Changi Airport's Terminal 3 got off to a flying start, serving 838 flights and 232,000 passengers in the first week of operations, after it opened on January 9.

There had been talk that a fourth terminal will be added next to the airport's proposed third runway, currently used by air force jets.

While no details were given, the Transport Ministry on Thursday confirmed that Singapore will have a Terminal 4.

Mrs Lim said, "To continue to ensure that we have sufficient capacity to accommodate growth in the aviation market, the master planning for Terminal 4 has started. In the near term, the focus will be on the expansion of the Budget Terminal and the upgrading of Terminal 1."

The Budget Terminal, which handled 2.9 million passengers since it opened in March 2006, will be expanded at a cost of S$10 million.

A total of nine low-cost carriers will operate out of it this year, including AirAsia which began plying the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route from February 1.

These budget airlines have contributed 3.6 million or around 10 percent of Changi's passenger traffic. The number of weekly schedule flights has also climbed from 124 in March 2006 to 248 last month.

Mrs Lim said, "We will be expanding the Budget Terminal from its current capacity of 2.7 million passengers per annum to 7 million passengers per annum at an estimated cost of S$10 million.We target to commence construction in July this year and to complete the expansion by early 2009."

Today, the Budget Terminal is connected to 20 cities in the region, up from 12 cities in 2006.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said the expansion is timely as passenger traffic is expected to grow with ASEAN's goal to remove restrictions on passenger flights between ASEAN capitals by December this year.

The expansion will include another seven check-in counters, three more boarding gates and new baggage handling equipment. The kerbside at the arrival hall will be widened to create more room for arriving passengers waiting for vehicles to pick them up.

The expansion of the Budget Terminal will increase its floor area from 25,000 square metres to 28,700 square metres.

In all, Changi Airport handled 36.7 million passengers last year. But even as the growth of Changi as an air hub remains healthy, Mrs Lim said it faces stiff competition from Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong and even Dubai.

She said, "Dubai International Airport, the largest aviation hub of the Middle East, is expected to overtake Changi's passenger traffic volume this year, crossing the 40 million passenger mark. Dubai is a formidable competitor for the Australia-Europe traffic. It is seeing phenomenal growth in passenger volume, with an almost 20 percent increase last year."

Thus, there will be more efforts to strengthen Singapore's status as an air hub. This includes pushing for air liberalisation and getting more airlines to fly to the city state. - CNA/ms

Singapore Changi Airport Wins Inaugural Airport of the Year Award from Frost & Sullivan

At the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Aerospace & Defense Awards ceremony held in Singapore on 14 March 2008, Singapore Changi Airport was presented the 'Airport of the Year' award. According to the organiser, Changi Airport is chosen, from among airports in the Asia Pacific region which handle over 15 million passengers annually, for 'demonstrating world class efforts in meeting the demands of all its end users; i.e. from airlines, passengers, cargo carriers to commercial non-travelling visitors.'

Mr Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), credited this award to airport staff's efforts. He expressed, "This award is an affirmation of the teamwork and dedication put in by all airport staff - the prime movers behind Changi Airport's success. It is also a testament to the success of various CAAS' policies and initiatives that help to maintain Changi Airport's status as one of the best airports in the world." He added, "I'm doubly happy and proud that CAAS' subsidiary, Changi Airports International (CAI), has also gained international recognition as the winner of the 'Airport Investment Company of the Year' award this evening."

This latest award is the fifth accolade received by Changi Airport so far for the year 2008. Two of these awards were based on readers' polls conducted by UK-based travel trade publications - Buying Business Travel magazine presented Changi the 'Best Worldwide Airport' award for the third time, while Wanderlust magazine crowned Changi the 'Top Worldwide Airport' for the sixth consecutive time.

And last month, at the 3rd Annual Readers Choice Awards organised by DestinAsian magazine, Changi topped the readers' poll as 'Best Airport in Asia Pacific' for the third consecutive year. Shortly after, CAAS won recognition as the 'Airport Authority with the Most Supportive Approach to Travel Retail' for the third year running at the Raven Fox Global Travel Retail Award organised by Duty Free News International & Travel Retailer International.

Late night shopping, dining at Terminal 3

31 Mar 08

TRAVELLERS and visitors can now enjoy late night shopping and dining at Changi Airport's new Terminal 3.
Some 60 shops and food and beverage outlets spread over 8,600 sq m of space in the public area were officially opened for business on Monday.

This is the largest dedicated retail and F&B space among the three terminals at the aiport.

Shopping and dining outlets are located at two dedicated areas - 'B2 Mall @ T3' on Basement 2 and '3-Top' on Levels 3 and 4.

Visitors can also enjoy late night shopping and dining every night as the retail outlets are open till 11pm daily, while some dining outlets are open 24-hours.

At the launch of the shopping and dining space on Monday, Mr Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), said: 'Though an airport is primarily for travellers, many Singaporeans, especially those living in the eastern part of the island, visit the airport to dine and relax on weekends.'

'We hope these visitors will continue to enjoy shopping and dining at Changi Airport, in particular, the unique retail and F&B experience at Terminal 3's public area.'

In conjunction with the launch, a shopping promotion will run exclusively in the public areas of T3 from Apirl 1 to 30.

During this promotion, 30 people will win an all-expenses paid trip to Beijing to watch the upcoming Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Shoppers just need to charge a minimum of $30 in a single receipt to Visa or spend a minimum of $60 in cash.

T3 is a seven-storey 380,000 sq m building with three basement and four above ground levels. It adds a capacity of 22 million passengers a year to Changi Airport, bringing the airport's total annual capability to about 70 million passengers.

Changi Airport's total retail and F&B space amounts to 48,000 sq m with about 230 retail and over 110 F&B outlets.

By Maria Almenoar
Straits Times

CHANGI Airport's 27-year-old Terminal 1 will undergo a $500 million upgrading to rejuvenate its interior and finishes.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) on Monday signed a contract with Takenaka Corporation, which will complete the upgrading work by the third quarter of 2011.

When ready, passengers can look forward to a new two lane-wide departure kerbside canopy which will provide more shelter for drop-offs, two new skylights to allow natural light into the terminal building and 15 more retail and, food and beverage outlets.

There will also be a new public viewing gallery, a centralised departure immigration area, a large piazza area in the centre of the departure transit mall with seats for passengers, and new outdoor areas with water features and plants.

A high glass facade will also feature along the length of the Arrival Immigration Hall.

Another feature that is set to wow passengers and visitors will be the 'Orchid Library' in the departure check-in hall, which will display potted orchids in bloom.

The contract was signed by CAAS' Director-General & Chief Executive Officer, Mr

Lim Kim Choon and Takenaka Corporation's Managing Director, Mr Atsuyoshi Suzuki.

Had a 4 hour transit stop-over on my way from London to Sydney... so I decided to check out the new T3.... to be honest - a lot of the pics I saw earlier don't actually do it justice....IT'S SO MUCH BETTER!!

Changi is by far my favourite airport. I love the ambience those guys create for transit passengers... the lounges, the TV / chill-out zones, the little hidden tropical / butterfly / waterfall / sculpture gardens, everything really.

... it's just such a role model and I reckon it deserves every price it wins (annually).
