Changi to reopen southern wing of Terminal 2 for departure operations
The southern wing will begin operations on 11 October.
Changi Airport will be reopening the southern wing of its Terminal 2 for departure operations on 11 October.
In an announcement, Changi said the resumption of T2’s departure operations will add to the airport’s capacity and “spread out passenger operations more evenly across the airport’s terminals as travel demand continues to grow in the lead-up to the year-end travel peak.”
The first airline that will use T2’ss new check-in rows will be Singapore Airlines (SIA).
Changi, however, clarified that only SIA flights to Malaysia and Thailand will depart from T2 on 11 October.
The rest of SIA’s Southeast Asian destinations will depart from T2 starting 13 October.
“SIA flights arriving in Changi will continue to be assigned gates at Terminals 1, 2 or 3. Meeters and greeters are advised to check the terminal assigned two hours before the estimated flight arrival time,” Changi said.
By 18 October, departure operations of two more airlines will move to T2 –- Air India (AI) and Air India Express (IX).
