SINGAPORE — Changi Airport will resume operations in Terminal 2 (T2) from 29 May, as it prepares to meet the expected increase in passenger traffic in the months ahead.

The Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in a media release on Sunday (22 May) that this is the first phase of T2's reopening, after it was closed for upgrading works in May 2020.

Key touchpoints such as arrival immigration, baggage claim belts and contact gates at T2's southern wing will be ready for flight operations.

The expansion works - which will see a larger arrival immigration hall with more automated immigration lanes and special assistance lanes - are scheduled to be completed by 2024, and will raise the terminal’s capacity by five million to 28 million passenger movements per year.

Hosting peak-hour arrivals in 1st phase of reopening

In this first phase of reopening, T2 will host mainly peak-hour arrival flights of airlines operating in Terminal 3 (T3). A small number of T3 departure flights may also use the boarding gates at T2, although passengers on these flights will continue to check in and clear departure immigration at T3.

CAG advises those coming to Changi to receive passengers to check which terminal an arriving flight has been assigned to. The information will be available on the Changi Airport website and the iChangi app at least two hours before the flight’s arrival time.

The T2 taxi stand is at Door 8 of the arrival hall. Private-hire vehicles or family and friends can pick up passengers from Doors 5 to 7. Arriving passengers can also follow signages to get to the bus station and the MRT station.
