Nice pictures. You can see where each plane has to go in order for the gates to reach.

Just a quick question: soon, Singapore Airlines will discontinue its A340-500 services to EWR and LAX, both the longest nonstop flights in the world. What replacement flights will be in place for them, especially for SIN-EWR? I know the following...

- Singapore-New York (JFK) operates an A380 through FRA as SIN-FRA-JFK v.v.
- Singapore-Los Angeles operates an A380 through NRT as SIN-NRT-LAX v.v.

Will the cancellation of A345 services mean that both New York and Los Angeles will come down to one daily flight each, or will SQ mount additional one-stop flights in place? San Francisco has double-daily SQ flights (one via HKG, another via ICN)... hopefully, the airline will figure out which stopovers will be mounted to retain a high frequency on both New York and LA markets.

What are your thoughts, gentlemen, on your experience at each of Changi's three terminals?

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

T1 nice after reno but my fav still T3. T1 still have some homework to be done such as poor car park in T1 (no shelter). Left my car there for 4 days trip and came back found my car covered with leaves and other things plus the bird sh1t. Understand that they dont want to remove the old trees in the parking area but its really bad experience

T2 is okay, clean and good. T3 has high roof, nice design and lots of good foods as well in T3

I think Terminal 2 is by far the worse - low ceilings, and there's a huge disparity in decor of concourses between those for the low cost carriers, full service carriers and the lone Lufthansa A380 gate.

Because Terminal 1 is a major hub for passengers connecting within and between their alliances, and the occasional "longer" connecting times between flights of different airlines, T1 appears to be more exciting airside as a terminal to cater to especially Economy Class passengers. T3 on the other hand has the luxury of being Singapore Airlines' hub, with minimal transfer time for connections, hence the main activity area as compared to T1 is lesser, with fewer facilities.

T1 is nice for the transit passengers like the transit lounge but their skyview lounge really bad. T3 is the most luxury terminal

Changi Airport's "Project Jewel" to be developed by CapitaMalls Asia
POSTED: 19 Aug 2013 11:18 AM


Changi Airport and mall developer CapitaMalls Asia will build an iconic mixed-use complex at the car park site in front of Terminal 1 codenamed "Project Jewel", which will boost the airport's handling capacity to 85 million passenger movements a year.

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport will build an iconic mixed-use complex with mall developer CapitaMalls Asia.

Changi Airport Group (CAG), which announced the partnership on Monday, said the project codenamed "Project Jewel" will be a world-class, signature lifestyle destination.

It will enable Changi Airport to capture the tourism market and boost Singapore's appeal as a stopover point for global travellers.

The complex will offer aviation and travel-related facilities, a wide range of retail offerings, as well as unique leisure attractions.

Project Jewel will be constructed on the car park site in front of Terminal 1 (T1), and will optimise the use of the 3.5-hectare plot of land.

As part of the redevelopment, T1 will also be expanded to allow more space for the arrival hall, baggage claim areas and taxi bays.

These enhancements will increase T1's passenger handling capacity to 24 million passenger movements per annum.

Project Jewel is also being designed to be architecturally iconic, with an impressive view of the complex from both the Airport Boulevard and the sky.

It will be designed by a consortium of design consultants led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, who designed Marina Bay Sands.

A key feature of the complex will be a large-scale, lush indoor garden with a breathtaking waterfall.

To be seamlessly connected to Terminals 1, 2 and 3, Project Jewel will serve as a node linking the three terminals, improving inter-terminal connectivity.

There are also plans for the complex to provide a central communal facility for the 32,000-strong airport community.

Project Jewel is one of the major infrastructure projects being undertaken at Changi Airport to build its capacity for growth and augment its position as a leading global air hub.

Another key infrastructure project is Terminal 4, a larger and enhanced terminal which will be built on the old Budget Terminal site.

With a planned capacity of 16 million passenger movements a year, the new terminal is in the final stages of planning, with construction to begin by the end of the year.

When completed, Project Jewel, together with Terminal 4, will boost Changi Airport's handling capacity to 85 million passenger movements a year, to cater for the airport’s growth into the next decade.

CAG also plans to increase its staff strength by about 180 people over the next four years, to staff the teams working on the two developments as well as other upcoming infrastructure projects.

This year alone, around 80 new employees will be recruited, said CAG.

Whoa, Project Jewel seems to be a fantastic rendering of the future of Changi Airport! It's like a bridgeway connecting all three terminals, with added touches as having a mall, indoor garden, and underground parking (not to mention being a lifestyle destination too!). I must say, I will monitor this development because I really want to take lessons and cues on how to make an airport more accessible, comfortable, and enjoyable to an even bigger audience, and I want to think of a similar idea for Manila because I know it deserves something like this, albeit smaller.

Not yet. It has already been awarded to a consortium led by SAA Architects.
