SINGAPORE — Changi Airport Group (CAG) on Friday (22 July) said Terminal 4 (T4) will resume operations on 13 September after a more than two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The reopening of T4, which has an annual capacity of 16 million passengers, will ensure that the Changi air hub can meet the rising demand for air travel, CAG said in a statement.
Over the next two months, CAG will conduct trials with the airlines and airport partners to ensure the smooth restart in T4.
Sixteen airlines will relocate to T4 in stages. Cathay Pacific and Korean Air will begin operations in T4 on 13 September, followed by AirAsia Group on 15 September.
This will be followed by Cebu Pacific, Juneyao Air, Jeju Air, Bamboo Airways, and HK Express on 20 September; Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air and Thai VietJet Air on 22 September; and Jetstar Group relocating to T4 on 25 October.
Besides shuttle bus services to provide connection for travellers between T4 and the other terminals, T4 is also served by taxis, private-hire vehicles and public buses service numbers 24, 34, 36 and 110.
Tan Lye Teck, CAG’s Executive Vice President of Airport Management, said, “The reopening of T4 will provide Changi Airport with much needed capacity to enable our airline partners to continue to grow and ride the wave of travel recovery, as well as support their business and operational needs.”
The announcement comes two months after CAG announced the resumption of operations at Changi Airport Terminal 2 (T2) from 29 May.
