|Source: CAG. CAG organises open house for Changi T4.|
Construction of T4 started in early 2013 and was completed in December 2016. The 195,000 sq m, double-storey terminal can handle 16 million passengers a year – about 70% of the handling capacity of Terminal 3 (T3) although T4 is just half the size of T3.
Designed with a boutique interior décor approach, T4 is set to redefine the way passengers travel through a creative layout, streamlined clearance processes as well as the way it leverages technology and innovation for passenger processes and staff productivity.
“The public has been eagerly waiting to see how the new T4 will be different from Changi’s other terminals. At the Open House, we will showcase T4’s latest innovations in enhancing operational efficiencies and productivity, in addition to the terminal’s many unique features. The Open House visitors will be among the first to learn about and experience the innovations and ‘wow’ features at T4 – facial recognition technology, integrated duty-free shopping, kinetic art displays, a Heritage Zone, and specially curated sculptures, among many others,” said Poh Li San, VP, T4 Programme Management Office.
During the Open House, which will run from 9am to 6pm daily, visitors will be able to explore the various T4 points of interest via a specially created T4 Open House app. The tour route is expected to take between 90 minutes and two hours.
At various zones along the Open House route, they will be invited to play location-based in-app games where they can win e-vouchers for use at Changi Airport’s retail and dining outlets. Visitors can also take part in the Photo of the Day competition. A lucky draw will be conducted at the close of each day, with airline tickets from T4 airlines to be won.
The T4 Open House is a ticketed event, with free tickets. Apply for tickets online. Each person who signs up can register for up to six participants.A total of 200,000 tickets are available throughout the entire two-week Open House period.
Visitors can access T4 via the two major expressways – the East Coast Parkway (ECP) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE). Visitors going to the Open House can also take a taxi or board a complimentary shuttle bus service from T3.
