Changi’s construction history


The construction plan began in Changi in June 1975 and Changi’s airport is still in permanent change.


Indeed, the Singapore Changi Airport had a development policy of always building years ahead of demand to help to avoid congestion problems common in major airports and maintain high service standards.


Plans for Terminal 3 were reviewed, resulting in a new design concept far from the very utilitarian design of the first two terminals. Topped by a unique roof feature designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the expansion construction started in 1999 and finished in 2006.


And finally on October 2017, terminal 4 opened. It’s design and concept are the result of feedback received from passengers and have won already many awards.
