September 6, 2017: Singapore Changi Airport’s new Terminal 4 (T4) is scheduled to commence operations on October 31, 2017. This follows the recent successful conclusion of major trials, with a small number of checks and reviews to be completed in the final phase of the preparations.

To ensure a smooth transition of flight operations from the existing terminals, the operations of the nine T4 airlines – the AirAsia Group (of four airlines), Cathay Pacific Airways, Cebu Pacific Air, Korean Air, Spring Airlines and Vietnam Airlines – will be shifted to T4 over one week on the following dates:

Tuesday, 31 October 2017 - Cathay Pacific Airways and Korean Air

Thursday, 2 November 2017 – Cebu Pacific Air and Spring Airlines

Tuesday, 7 November 2017 – AirAsia Group and Vietnam Airlines

The first arrival and departing flights at T4 will be operated by Cathay Pacific.

In recent weeks, CAG conducted trials involving selected commercial flights with airline partners at T4, which were essential to validate , in a live setting, the inter-operability and process integration of the airport’s and airlines’ systems. Altogether, more than 100 trials have been conducted, involving over 1,500 volunteer participants and 2,500 airport staff.

Tan Lye Teck, CAG’s executive vice president (Airport Management), said, “The past months have been a very crucial period for us as we conducted intensive tests and trials, not only to ensure that the systems work well, but also to understand how passengers navigate the new terminal, including interacting with initiatives such as FAST which may be less familiar to them.

“We have identified areas of improvement following those trials. Feedback gathered from trial participants has also been very useful to CAG and our partners in fine-tuning our systems and processes. We will take the next few weeks to complete the last set of trials as we prepare for the commencement of operations at T4.”

T4 will add a capacity of 16 million passengers per annum to Changi Airport, bringing the airport’s total annual handling capacity to 82 million passenger movements.
