On my way back to Manila, my uber driver mentioned that Changi Airport is getting an upgrade and an expansion later this year and adding one more terminal in the coming years.

Terminal 4 is less than half the size of T3, but it will able to handle two-thirds the passenger traffic that the bigger facility can.

The new terminal will offer an automated start-to-end process that includes self-service checkins and other passenger processes. This state of the art terminal will also make use of facial recognition system to ensure that the same traveller moves from the first to last stop.

T4 is designed with high ceilings and open spaces that projects a modern and clean look. It will also highlight a Perakanan-themed heritage zone featuring a six-minute cultural show and a high wall showcasing Singapore’s skyline and ASEAN Landmarks, as well as a whimsical animated clip on suitcases being screened before a flight.

The new terminal combines art and technology to create a harmonic collective choreography of six identical petal clouds, the sculpture depicts clouds moving slowly through the horizon.

T4 will house nine airlines including the AirAsia group’s four carriers and Cathay Pacific. These new technology will also be replicated at the other three existing terminals of Changi.

See the video below and fully appreciate the new T4.
