Changi Terminal 4 to boost passenger capacity by 16 million
Will this help handle the growing traffic at Changi?
The opening of Terminal 4 at the Changi Airport is expected to bring in more capacity for the airport, giving it the boost it needs amidst the growing passenger traffic.
According to RHB, Changi handled 58.7 million passengers last year. In the first five months of this year, passenger volumes have continued to expand, rising 5.3% on a yearly basis.
RHB noted that the new terminal will add another 16 million in passenger capacity per year. More so, the Terminal 5, which is expected to open sometime in 2020 will boost the capacity by another 50 million.
"This is part of efforts to solidify Changi's position as an air hub even as other airports in the region beef up their infrastructure," RHB said.
