Changi Airport Terminal 4 – new love affair?

by on August 3, 2017
 

Changi Airport Terminal 4 opens soon and promises to be the Airport’s showcase terminal. The confirmed opening date is yet to be announced, but some commercial flights have used the facilities as part of the operational testing. The first of these was an AirAsia flight at the end of June 2017.

T4 will serve both full-service and low cost carriers. The airlines are those focusing on point to point travellers, rather than connecting passengers.

If you are connecting onward, it’s important to note:

  • Terminal 4 is a separate building
  • There is no directly connection between Terminal 4 and the other terminals
  • The internal skytrain does not service Terminal 4
  • The MRT Station is in the main Terminal complex (Terminals 1-3)
  • You will need to use a shuttle bus to travel to the other terminals for flight or MRT connections

Changi Airport Terminal 4 – airlines

Nine airlines will operate about eight hundred flights a week to over twenty destinations. This new terminal is expecting traffic of about eight million passengers a year.

The first airline to sign up to use the terminal was  Cathay Pacific (CX). They are joined by Korean Air (KE), Vietnam Airlines (VN), Cebu Pacific (5J) and Spring Airlines (9C).

The AirAsia Group will be the anchor tenant, well represented by AirAsia (AK), Indo AirAsia (QZ), Philippines AirAsia (Z2) and Thai AirAsia (FD).

 Check-in, security and boarding

To speed your journey through the formalities, Changi Airport Terminal 4 uses FAST, which automates and streamlines many of these processes. This page on their website describes each step and there’s a handy video demonstrating the security screening.

The airport is currently conducting ‘Open House’ walk through visits until 20th August.  These were fully booked very quickly!
