Changi Airport to operate using Runway 1 and Runway 3 from October 2020

Recommended Posts

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport will operate using Runway 1 and Runway 3 from October next year in order to facilitate works for the airport’s fifth terminal and the Changi East Industrial Zone.

The airport will operate on these two runways from Oct 25 next year and passengers can expect a longer taxiing time for flights assigned to Runway 3, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in a media release on Monday (Nov 4).

“To ensure the safety of flight operations, Runway 2 will be closed temporarily for the next phase of infrastructure works for the Changi East project.

“These works are needed to complete Changi Airport’s fifth terminal, the Changi East Industrial Zone and supporting facilities by the early 2030s, and to operationalise a three-runway system by the mid-2020s,” CAG added.

Oh NO! AK will be jumping up at down again especially for flights between KUL and SIN - more delays!! 🤗

No AK behaves well everywhere else across our borders. In fact Changi will be praised for this by everyone else.

was wondering why runway 2 is closed instead of runway 3.

Runway 3 has been closed for a few years already - for strengthening (to accommodate larger aircraft) and lengthening (to 4 km).

If you clicked on the links above, you will see a diagram of the runways. Runway 2 is currently used as Runway 02C/20C and there is a public road parallel to it. In order for T5 to become part of the overall Changi airport complex, it will be necessary to turn this landside part into an airside part and integrate it. I think some new roads, tunnels and taxiways will be constructed. That explains why they need to close this runway.

Yes, I think the closure of Runway 2 is to enable the construction of second parallel runway, intra airside road connection that incl. tunnel and fire station as part of T5 construction
