Changi Airport Terminal 2 Reopens
Changi Airport Group has reported the engineering and expansion works at Terminal 2 have been completed. The northern wing of Terminal 2 (T2) begins operations today, elevating its overall capacity to 90 million passengers per annum.
Improved Infrastructure and Amenities
The expansion added 15,500 square metres to T2, integrating a Fast and Seamless Travel (FAST) zone, more automated kiosks, and expanded immigration halls. Notably, T2 has pioneered automated Special Assistance Lanes for both arrivals and departures.
Critical systems and equipment were upgraded, including a new chiller plant reducing energy consumption by 30%. The terminal’s baggage facilities have also been optimized for increased efficiency, accommodating more bags and introducing advanced security features.
Emulating nature, T2 boasts a serene design using natural materials, green columns, and an array of plants, creating a soothing environment for passengers.
For in-transit passengers, T2 offers a rich dining experience at Gourmet Garden, overlooking the airport’s apron. Brands like GOPIZZA, Hudsons, Dunkin’, and others ensure a diverse food selection.
For retail and food enthusiasts, T2 is set to introduce a variety of brands, both local and international. From the homegrown dim sum brand, Swee Choon, to Indonesian coffee gem, Kenangan Coffee, there’s something for every palate.
Other returning brands include Paris Baguette and traditional retailer, Eu Yan Sang.
