Since Singapore’s full reopening on 1 April, Changi Airport’s passenger traffic has been steadily increasing. With passenger traffic at Changi Airport hitting 48% of pre-pandemic levels in early June and more airlines requesting to launch additional flights, Changi Airport Group is taking the next step in gearing up for full recovery by reopening two terminals and launching more shops.

To enhance operating capacity and spur full recovery, Changi Airport will be reopening its Terminal 4 (T4) in September to handle both departure and arrival flights. The Changi Airport Group is currently in talks with airlines, airport partners and potential tenants in the lead up to this.

Airlines which previously operated from T4 before the onset of Covid-19 will most likely return to the terminal. It is also said that a number of retail outlets and F&B options will be made available for visitors upon T4’s reopening.

On 29 May, Terminal 2 (T2) commenced arrival operations, while its departure operations in the southern wing — departure hall — of T2 are scheduled to resume in October. Between August to October, visitors at T2 can look forward to brand-new stores selling beauty products and duty-free wines and spirits, alongside four F&B concepts in the arrival hall.

“The fast rebound in travel demand has given us great encouragement to prepare Changi Airport for the full recovery of passenger volume back to pre-Covid-19 levels,” said Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group. “The additional capacity offered by T4 and T2 will put Changi Airport in a good position to capture this recovery and support the business and operational needs of airlines.”

Meanwhile, Seletar Airport, also operated by Changi Airport Group, has also reopened to commercial flights again, with Malaysian airline Firefly resuming two return flights a day between Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang and Seletar Airport from 13 June.
