The development of Changi Airport’s Terminal 4 (T4) is going well having completed more than 70% of the building.

Airlines that will be housed upon its opening in 2017 include AirAsia group, which includes AirAsia (Malaysia), Indonesia AirAsia, Thai AirAsia, as well as, Korean Air and Vietnam Airlines.

Changi Airport Group held a press conference revealing the progress of the construction of the new T4 and airlines that would be operating out of there.

The six airlines currently operate almost 800 flights a week in and out of Changi Airport carrying close to 7 million passengers last year.

More carriers are expected to eventually move to T4 which is located where the former Budget Terminal was reported the Straits Times. The new terminal will be able to handle up to 16 million passengers a year, the airport said.

Facial recognition technology will be introduced at T4 and this will be a first for Changi Airport. This will eliminate the need for manual identity verification by staff.
