Loving the continuing expansion of Changi, the Singaporean authorities certainly don't mess around and i'm confident they will get Terminal 4 done on time and on budget as well. Impressive growth too

Every Australian loves Changi Airport. It's a shame that Qantas moved its operations to Dubai. Qantas is a dying legacy airline though, so I expect Singapore Airlines will see an increase in passengers over the next few years as Qantas outsources more of its services. Singapore's a great stop on the Kangaroo Route.

Interesting observation. How will Qantas survive without its long-revered Kangaroo Route and after reducing flights to Singapore?

@Vrooms I like that speedy breakdown of the Budget Terminal and I am looking forward to a brand new Terminal 4. Do you have any idea which airlines will eventually use the new terminal, and will the budget airlines stay at Terminal 2 for good? Plus, it's interesting that you brought up Singapore to Cairns; when was the last time such service was operated? And do you think SQ or QF will redo the route?

Qantas kangaroo route will go via DXB(know as the falcon route) instead of SIN to LHR from April. Thats when its strategic alliance with Emirates begins as well.........

Terminal 4 will basically be a replacement for the budget terminal. It was reported that it will be designed for quick turnaround and will not have aerobridges. I think the whole idea is to move all budget carriers there when it is completed in 2017. Although nothing is confirmed yet

The SIN - CNS was last operated in 2006 by Australian Airlines. There were reports last year that Jetstar would start operations but no news so far

So with the loss of the SIN-LHR route with QF, it seems like BA and SQ will remain, with BA continuing its trip further to SYD. Help me out, though: did BA also operate SIN-MEL as well? And now that QF is pulling out from the LHR market from SIN, how many QF flights do you believe will SIN have left?

BA did operate LHR - SIN - MEL but it ended years ago. QF will still operate SIN - FRA until october. So we will probably see about 16 qantas flights a day from 1 april(not sure if some will close after march though):
SIN - PER 2 PER - SIN 2
SIN - SYD 2 SYD - SIN 2
SIN - BNE 1 BNE - SIN 1
SIN - MEL 1 MEL - SIN 1
SIN - ADL 1 ADL - SIN 1
SIN - FRA 1 FRA - SIN 1

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.
