The new introduction given in the new Changi Website
http://www.changiairport.com.sg/chan...erminal_3.html

Terminal 3

Being constructed at a cost of S$1.75 billion, Terminal 3 is scheduled for completion in 2008. Terminal 3 will have an annual handling capacity of 20 million passengers, and will add another 28 aerobridge gates to Changi Airport, of which 8 will be able to accommodate the A380 aircraft.

With the completion of Terminal 3, Changi Airport will have a total handling capacity of 64 million passengers per year, with 95 aerobridge gates, of which 19 will be A380-compliant.

Terminal 3 will have a S$21 million state-of-the-art baggage handling system and will be linked by a new S$135 million Automated People Mover, which will serve all 3 terminals, allowing transfer passengers to shuttle between terminals easily.

Featuring a unique roof design, Terminal 3 will have skylights intelligently positioned to admit optimal amount of natural lighting into the terminal interior during the day. At night, artificial light will bounce off the ceiling to create a soothing and comfortable environment beyond parallel for all passengers.

Single route for passengers within Changi's Terminal 3 to maximise shopping

By Johnson Choo, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : Images of what the inside of Changi's third airport terminal might look like were released at a three-day global airport trade show in Singapore on Monday.

One key change will be a rethink of how passengers are made to pass by its shops.

When Changi's Terminal 3 opens in 2008, it will not only sport spanking new halls with glass facade and bright interior, it will also feature a single-street passageway-shopping arcade to maximise retail and food and beverage (F&B) potential.

Unlike Changi's existing terminals, there will only be one possible route from customs to the planes at the new terminal.

However, the Civil Aviation Authority is sticking with the current arcade shopping formula, as some 34 million passengers spent nearly S$1 billion at Terminals 1 and 2 combined last year.

So what other new modern airports doing?

Frankfurt Airport is banking on Radio Frequency Identification technology to get more passengers to spend.

This to track travellers' shopping profiles as they check themselves in, and "push" appropriate products to them.

Japan's Narita Airport, on the other hand, is offering shoppers two themed-shopping experiences at its newly-renovated terminals, in a bid to cater to different customer tastes.

With the advent of budget travel, even operators like Singapore's Budget Terminal is looking at retail and F&B to help keep it profitable.

Jeffrey Loke, Assistant Commercial Director, CAAS, said, "The main criteria for the Budget Terminal for profitability would be to make sure enough passengers go through it, and for that we're working closely with Tiger Airways, which is the inaugural tenant for the terminal...Their routes to China and India have just been launched, and that promises to bring in more traffic."

Looking ahead, industry players say low-cost travel is going to increase in the near future, and to remain relevant, they have to be both nimble and responsive to the needs of these customers, who may be flying cheap, but do have considerable spending power. - CNA/ms

Hmm....hopefully they start T4 soon.....

Terminal 3 to boost S'pore hub status
With topping-out over, the $1.75b terminal is on course to open in early 2008

By VEN SREENIVASAN

(SINGAPORE) Natural skylight, green foliage, cascading waterfalls, large open spaces, attractive shopping, a resort hotel spread over an area the size of 63 football fields.

Futuristic: T3 uses extensive glass walls and boasts a unique roof architecture which will allow soft natural light into the building while keeping the tropical heat out
Changi Airport's new $1.75 billion Terminal 3 (T3) promises these and more to the expected 20 million passengers who will pass through its gates when it opens in early 2008.

The 380,000 square metres terminal went through its official 'topping out' ceremony yesterday, marking the completion of all the major infrastructural works. The next phase of work will involve the fitting-out of the seven-storey building, which includes four basement levels.

Guest of honour at yesterday's topping-out and outgoing Transport Minister Yeo Cheow Tong, who has been overseeing the project from inception several years ago, said the new T3 would take Singapore's aviation industry into the 21st century.

CAAS' media release

'T3 is a $1.75 billion investment for our future,' Mr Yeo said. 'With its 20 million passenger handling capacity, T3's completion in 2008 will boost Changi Airport's capacity to 64 million passengers - 16 times more than Singapore's current population and significantly more than our humble beginnings at Kallang Airport, which was designed to handle less than a million passengers a year. Thus, I am confident that when T3 is ready, with 28 aerobridge gates, eight of which are designed to handle large aircraft like the A380, it will further strengthen Singapore's position as the premier aviation hub.'

BT understands that Singapore Airlines will be the first to move in, from Terminal 2, when T3 opens in the first quarter of 2008.

T3 will be directly connected with the other two main terminals at Changi Airport via a 7-train monorail system, enabling passengers to do seamless connection and interlining while their luggage is transported via a high-speed baggage handling system connecting all three terminals.

Key features which set T3 apart include a unique roof architecture which will allow soft natural light into the building while keeping the tropical heat out. This is done using 900 skylights with specially designed reflector panels which will automatically adjust themselves to allow an optimal amount of soft and uniform daylight into the terminal building.

Another key highlight of T3 is its five-storey high vertical garden, called the Green Wall. Spanning 300 metres across the main building and seen from both the Departure and Arrival Halls, the Green Wall is covered with climbing plants and is interspersed with four cascading waterfalls. Located below it is a sculptured sandstone art wall display.

T3 will also have more than 20,000 square metres of retail floor space for over 70 retail shops and 30 food & beverage outlets.

The building makes extensive use of glass, allowing passengers a vantage view of both the airside and landside shopping and dining zones.

Speaking to reporters after the topping-out ceremony and building tour, Mr Yeo revealed that even as T3 neared completion, the government was already 'thinking' about Terminal 4. 'If the economy continues to grow, one of these days we will run out of space,' he remarked. 'The idea of T4 is already in the back of our minds even as T3 nears completion.'

T4, when it is built, will be located next to the airport's proposed third runway, south of the existing second runway. It is currently an airstrip used by air force jets.

Mr Yeo noted that the competition among airports had been ratcheting up. 'For instance, this region will soon see the opening of yet another new airport, the new Bangkok International Airport. Further away, Dubai International Airport has also announced a plan for a new airport with a total capacity of over 100 million.'

Changi handled a record 32.4 million passengers last year, and has already seen a 10 per cent year-on-year rise in passenger movements during the first three months of this year.

They've already planned T4 and T5 (even beyond) by using reclaimed land, I like Singapore's approach of long-term planning, reclaimed land takes a while to stabilize. Unlike Dubai (the Palms) and Kansai, you won't have to worry about lands sinking (from earthquake, etc) when you build things right after reclamation.
