Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 2 fully reopened to passengers on November 1 after three and a half years of extensive upgrade work. Besides adding over 21,000 square metres to the existing building, the project has introduced features like a digital waterfall and a digital sky for passengers to marvel at while they wait for their flights.
The Wonderfall is a multimedia digital waterfall display at the departure hall that stands at four stories and 14 metres high and is complemented by a landscaped garden.
The transit area at the all-new Terminal 2 features a stunning new Dreamscape feature that comprises an immersive garden elevated over a pond, beneath a dynamic digital sky.
Changi Airport Group (CAG) said the expansion is expected to add 5 million passengers per annum to its overall capacity, with the airport’s total capacity across all four terminals reaching 90 million passengers
The revamped terminal has a central common-use Fast and Seamless Travel zone, with almost twice the number of automated check-in kiosks and bag-drop machines compared to the original set-up. The immigration halls can now accommodate more automated immigration lanes. The terminal is the first Changi terminal to introduce automated Special Assistance Lanes for travellers with disabilities and young children at arrival and departure immigration points.
