About Changi Airport

With more than 390 accolades under its belt, Changi Airport has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1981, when Terminal 1 first opened. Currently managed by Changi Airport Group, Changi Airport was corporatised on 1 July 2009.

For the past 30 years, Changi Airport Group, previously as part of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, has established Changi Airport as the world’s most awarded “Best Airport”. In a short span of seven years since Changi's opening, Terminal 1 received its first recognition as the world's best airport from Business Traveller (UK) in 1988. Two years later, Terminal 2 was unveiled to cope with Terminal 1's overwhelming success. Constantly integrating itself to the ever-changing aviation landscape, Budget Terminal was opened in 2006 providing a no-frills Changi Experience aimed at passengers of low cost carriers. More recently, the state-of-the art Terminal 3 opened in 2008. The JetQuay Terminal serves businesses and individuals who require a more luxurious level of service.

The seventh busiest international airport today, Changi Airport is a major air hub in Asia, Serving more than 100 international airlines flying to some 210 cities in about 60 countries and territories worldwide, Changi Airport handled more than 46 million passengers in 2011 (that's more than 9 times the size of Singapore's population). A flight takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 100 seconds.

With over 70,000 square metres of commercial space across its four terminals, Changi Airport is also one of Singapore's best places for shopping and dining. Increasingly, the airport has become a favourite destination for Singapore residents, especially families.

At Changi Airport, we pride ourselves in providing excellent service and unrivalled capabilities to create exceptional journeys that deliver the world's best airport experience. Every journey through Changi Airport is an opportunity to bring people together and help them realize their aspirations.

Changi Airport’s Initiatives

To improve energy efficiency, some of the initiatives that Changi Airport Group has implemented include:

  • Using energy efficient lighting and installing motion sensors throughout the airport.
  • Using natural lighting in passenger areas where possible. Double glazed glass and solar shading devices let natural light into the building while minimizing heat gained from sunlight. This reduces the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning.
  • Shutting down of escalators and travellators during off peak hours at night.
  • Switching off peripheral lighting during day time.
  • Seeking the best energy-efficient options when replacing our assets and equipment.
  • Installing a 250kWp photovoltaic system to the Budget Terminal. These solar panel modules cover a rooftop area of about 2,500m² and are expected to generate over 280,000kWh/year.
  • Carbon Emissions are reduced by approximately 122,000kg of CO2 per year.
