Hi,

Those baggage claim belts look awesome! But seriously, on a whole very nice looking terminal.

Cheers,

They really gotta leave the 80's behind. Changi and all it's greatness really needs a design upgrade. The whole airport design schema has not changed since the 80's. The whole Mega Shopping Mall architecture is so dated.

After surviving the dungeon of LAX baggage claim, those are awesome!

Question, is SIN going to get another runway for the terminal? It looks like there is plenty of room between the two current runways for a 3rd (via Google earth). (e.g., have two close in for good weather operations and then land inner and outer runways in poor weather)

I am told that retail rental in Changi is the highest in the world (not just airports but anywhere). Could be wrong but was told this by someone in the retail industry. So maybe dated but if it brings in the dollars it is hard to argue with.

Interesting...

Dated... as in functional, open, marble...
Yea, if only the US airports could catch up to that!  Wink

I believe in the master plan a 3rd and 4th runway is planned... a 4th Terminal is also implemented into the master plan of Changi Airport...

What will happen to the existing terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Will they also be facelifted?

And Terminal 3 is for exclusive use for SQ isn it? Who will use Terminal 2?

unlike KLIA who made the claim

WOW. Some of the newer international airport terminals are really putting our US airports to shame!

Excellent airport
Hopefully the SKL will also be better in T3, as it is quite bad according to what some say

Any link to the masterplan?

Very impressive indeed, love the ceilings, and the waterfall by the bagage carousel.....

Singapore Airlines will move to the new terminal, the other airlines in T2 will stay, and I believe some airlines in T1 will move to T2....

Star Alliance has plans in Singapore to move all online member carriers under one roof. If that's the case then T3 will be Star terminal?

Just had another look, Star carriers will all be moved to T2 in 1st quarter 2008.

SQ will use both T2 & T3. BA and QF should be moving to T3 as well in the future.

just curious, any indication for a public viewing gallery overlooking the ramp or movements on 02L/20R? It will be great news for us spotters in SIN.

Shame the airport closed off the T1 gallery since March 2006 and the cavenous T2 gallery in the early 2000s.

I wasn't criticising the concept but rather the square box architecture and design. They've also used that same color palette since T1 was built. Don't get me wrong, it's still one of the best airports in the World, especially in terms of efficiency and amenities.

I'm old enough to remember the OLD terminal. I flew PER-TUL-PER years ago. On the way to TUL I went through the old terminal and on the way back to PER went through the brand new T1 terminal. Bit of a change! I was also impressed that there were engineers on still walking the terminal in case they were needed for anything. Had a nice chat with one while waiting for the final flight.
