Changi Airport traffic grows almost 6% in first three quarters”

Changi Airport's new Terminal 4 is open for business.

About 250 travellers from Hong Kong were among the first to arrive at Terminal 4 at 5.25am on October 31, via a Cathay Pacific flight. Many passengers checked in early so that they could explore the various offerings in the terminal, including the different art displays and immersive LED walls. Passengers on the first departure flight, CX650 bound for Hong Kong at 0650 hours, were also treated to local delights, games and activities.

SPC Group, Korea's leading food manufacturer and distributor on November 1 announced that it has opened three more Paris Baguette outlets at Changi Airport in Singapore.

In all, 4.93 million passengers passed through the airport in September, compared with 4.58 million travellers in the same month past year, said airport operator Changi Airport Group on Wednesday (Nov 1).

Singapore Changi Airport annually handles some 52 million passengers as of past year, listed as the world's sixth-busiest airport in terms of worldwide traffic.

Even though T4 is only about half the size of T3 - at 225,000 sqm, it's Changi Airport's smallest terminal - it's expected to see 16 million passengers pass through annually once it's fully operational.

The outdoor advertising company, JCDecaux has unveiled more than 60 digital and static advertising media assets in partnership with Changi Airport at Terminal 4 of the airport as part of the terminal's "Fast And Seamless Travel at Changi" initiative.

He added: "We are thankful that everything has been smooth so far today. We look forward to welcoming the other T4 airlines, which will start their operations progressively on 2 and 7 November". They also received orchids upon disembarking from the plane and were greeted with a performance by local instrumental band Lorong Boys at the baggage belt.

A mix of recognised and new brands are making their home at the new terminal, with 62 retail outlets and 19 F&B sites on offer. "We will continue to work with our tenant partners to create a fun, vibrant and positively surprising experience for passengers and visitors at T4", said Ms Teo Chew Hoon, CAG's Group Senior Vice President for Airside Concessions.
