Singapore’s Changi Airport To Resume Operations At T4 From September 13


Singapore’s Changi International Airport on Friday announced that operations at Terminal 4 (T4) will resume on 13 September 2022, following a more than two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The reopening of T4 will increase Changi Airport’s capacity to 16 million passengers per year, ensuring that the air hub can accommodate the rising demand for air travel and support airlines’ plans to operate more flights.

Changi Airport will perform different operational readiness testing with airlines and airport partners over the following two months to ensure a seamless resumption of operations in T4.

Changi Airport Terminal 4

T4, Changi’s newest terminal, opened in 2017 and features 21 contact gates[1]. It received the Singapore President’s Design Award for its innovative redesign of the airport experience. The Fast And Seamless Travel (FAST) check-in process at T4 received the Techblazer Award for best technology adoption for a Smart Airport.


Airlines Moving to T4

Sixteen airlines will gradually relocate their operations to the Terminal. Cathay Pacific and Korean Air will start operating in T4 on September 13, 2022, followed by AirAsia Group on September 15, 2022. On September 20, 2022, Cebu Pacific, Juneyao Air, Jeju Air, Bamboo Airways, and HK Express will follow suit. Other carriers, including Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air, and Thai VietJet Air, will relocate to T4 on September 22, 2022, with Jetstar Group following on October 25, 2022.

T4’s high degree of automation throughout the airport journey from check-in to boarding will enable airlines to benefit from productivity gains. T4 also has sufficient narrow-body boarding gates to facilitate the operations of airlines with predominantly narrow-body planes in their fleet, reducing the need for bussing operations.
