Changi Airport Group has announced that operations in Terminal 2 will resume on 29 May 2022, the first phase of the terminal’s reopening as Changi Airport prepares to meet the expected increase in passenger traffic in the months ahead.
Singapore has joined the growing roster of nations to ease Covid entry restrictions. With infection rates stabilising, the Asian hub is removing the requirement for vaccinated travellers to take a pre-arrival test, whilst limits on group sizes and social distancing are also being scrapped, as from tomorrow.
From May 1st, operations at terminal two will be suspended for 18 months, with airlines to be relocated to the remaining terminals. The move will enable Changi and its partners to save on running costs, such as utilities and cleaning, as well as to optimise resources across the remaining terminals.
Singapore Airlines will be investing more than SGD50 million (£30 million) in a major revamp of its SilverKris and KrisFlyer Gold Lounges at Changi Airport Terminal 3. Renovations are due to commence in August and are expected to be completed by mid-2021.
The final phases of Jewel Changi Airport, its Canopy Park and the Changi Experience Studio, have opened to the public. The park also contains the 250 metre-long, three storey-high, suspended Manulife Sky Nets which allow visitors to bounce their way through Jewel’s Canopy level.
Officially opening to the public next Wednesday, more than four years after ground was broken on the development in 2014, Jewel will offer travellers and visitors unique attractions, extensive shopping and dining experiences, as well as airport and accommodation facilities.
Jewel will house aviation, travel-related and lifestyle facilities for international visitors to Singapore, as well as an extensive retail offering and unique play attractions.
