“Customers will now enjoy the benefits of having access to two world-class terminals - state-of-the-art facilities, modern design, thoughtful service and of course, more choice.
Needless to say, we are extremely honoured to be the first airline to start using Terminal 3, and we’re sure our customers are equally looking forward to being the first to enjoy such a world-class facility,” said Mr Yap.
With the expansion of services, customers departing from Changi Airport will check-in at Terminal 2 or 3 for their flights, depending on their destination.
