We have upcoming flights with SQ and I purposely chose a longer layover at SIN just to explore the world-renowned airport and maybe explore Singapore itself.
Here are my flight details
JFK-SIN via FRA, Arriving at SIN at 6:35am
SIN-MNL, Departing at 12:10pm
So we have around 5 Hours in SIN, I did my research and it seems that there is a free city tour that departs at 9AM and lasts for 2 hours, which means we'll be back at the airport by 11AM. Is 1 Hour and 10 Minutes enough to go through security, immigration(?) then head to the gate? Or is it cutting it too close? JFK-FRA-SIN is a LONG flight, so should we just sleep at the airport and relax? Are there free showers for transit pax? What are the amenities in SIN like? Any recommendations, what to try, where to eat, what to buy, etc.
Also, after arriving in MNL, we're connecting to another flight which departs at 7:15pm to CGY.
On our return flight, we have a longer stopover:
MNL-SIN, Arriving at SIN at 5:40pm
SIN-JFK via FRA, Departing at 11:55pm
There are no city tours since we'd be stopping over at night, so I guess we'll just walk around SIN and try to pass the time.
Also, for those a.netters who have traveled on SQ 25/26, what are the process of transferring at FRA? I know that you'll have to exit the aircraft and re-clear security(?) So do we keep our boarding passes, or will the agent at JFK give us two boarding passes, one for JFK-FRA and FRA-SIN?
