TODAY, Changi Airport reopened Terminal 2 (T2), ahead of the specified schedule in order to restore the operations of the four terminals, while also welcoming Indonesian tourists who chose Singapore as a year-end holiday destination.

T2 delivers new experiences and state-of-the-art facilities that integrate a modern, nature-inspired terminal atmosphere with immersive digital experiences and innovative technologies, featuring The Wonderfall and Dreamscape.

The T2 expansion project is able to increase Changi Airport’s total capacity by 5 mppa (million passengers per annum) to 90 mppa. The timely completion of T2 is needed to meet capacity, in an effort to anticipate a full recovery of pre-COVID tourists in 2024. In September 2023, the number of passengers from Indonesia to Singapore and vice versa has recovered to 84% of pre-COVID. Meanwhile in 2022, this figure will recover to 40% from before COVID-19.

In October 2023, Changi will be connected with 10 cities in Indonesia via 8 airlines, including Batik Air, Citilink and Garuda Indonesia, as well as international airlines such as Indonesia AirAsia, Jetstar Asia Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Scoot and Singapore Airlines serving 424 flights weekly between Singapore and Indonesia. In addition, Jakarta is the second busiest international route in Southeast Asia and eighth in the world, having 8 airlines serving 189 weekly flights between Singapore and Jakarta.

According to Tan Lye Teck, Program Director of Terminal 2 Expansion Project Changi Airport Group said, Changi Airport always provides innovation and the best service, while being at the forefront of retail and culinary trend innovation.

“With the expansion of T2, we are seeking to enhance the traveler experience by integrating a modern terminal atmosphere inspired by nature, with immersive digital experiences, innovative technology, and transformative retail and culinary concepts that create a special sense of place,” he said.

T2’s expansion project has added 21,000-square-feet of space to house additional infrastructure, new systems and more shopping options. In the T2 departure hall, there is now The Wonderfall, a 14-meter-high digital canvas set amidst a vertical garden, showcasing the beauty of nature with a majestic waterfall cascading over megalithic rocks.

Within the transit area, there is a new garden – Dreamscape, which dazzles with a charming array of plants amidst a carefully arranged backdrop, brought to life with the splendor of a ‘digital sky’ that can change color at any given moment.

The Gourmet Garden, a unique dining area with stunning apron views and beautiful leaves hanging from the ceiling, invites tourists in search of a taste of Singapore. T2’s revitalized public spaces are also home to a number of exciting new local and international brands. There is Kopi Kenangan from Indonesia which is not only famous for its high-quality coffee and affordable prices, but also for its wide selection of drinks that bring Asia together with the world.
