Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) will reopen its Terminal 2 (T2) from May 29 following a two-year closure.
When traffic plummeted because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Changi Airport Group (CAG)–which runs SIN–closed T2 so that the facility’s major expansion project could be accelerated. When the project is completed in 2024, T2’s capacity will increase from five million passengers annually to 28 million passengers per year, according to CAG.
The terminal will reopen in phases. “Key touch points such as arrival immigration, baggage claim belts and contact gates at the southern wing of the terminal will be ready for flight operations” from May 29, CAG said.
At the start, “T2 will host mainly peak-hour arrival flights of airlines operating in Terminal 3,” CAG said, adding that “a small number of T3 departure flights may use boarding gates at T2, although passengers on these flights will continue to check in and clear departure immigration at T3”…
