Following the resumption of arrival operations at Changi Airport Terminal 2 (T2) earlier in May, Changi Airport will reopen T2’s southern wing for departure operations from October 11.
This will add to the airport’s capacity ahead of year-end travel peak by spreading out passenger operations more evenly across the other terminals.
Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be the first airline to operate out of T2, with services to Malaysia and Thailand starting from October 11. All other SIA flights flying to the rest of South-east Asian destinations will depart from T2 from October 13.
SIA flights arriving in Changi Airport will continue to be assigned gates at Terminals 1, 2 or 3 – updates on the terminal assigned will be available two hours before the estimated flight arrival time.
Air India and Air India Express will also move to T2 from October 18. The list of other airlines using T2 will be announced subsequently.
T2 has been refreshed and designed with automated check-in kiosks, automated immigration clearance gates, and will offer various F&B and retail offerings in the public and transit areas. The terminal’s transit hotel and pay-per-use lounge will be open to departing and transit passengers, while eligible Singapore Airlines customers may use the SilverKris Lounge.
More F&B and retail options, as well as new attractions to enhance passenger travel experience through Changi Airport, will be on offer when the northern wing of T2 is fully completed by 2024.
In the weeks ahead, Changi Airport Group will be conducting more operational readiness trials with airline and airport partners to ensure that all systems and processes are in place for a smooth opening of T2’s southern wing.
