They mention T4 to cater for FSCs and LCCs, but the lack of APM connection (although buses are available) with the other three terminals shows that they really intend this to be a terminal for the LCCs which mainly handles O&D traffic, not transit pax. But will they give benefits for LCCs to move there? The reason AirAsia is at T1 is to get business from the transit pax coming from FSCs

More like the reason AirAsia is at T1 because the old budget terminal simply cannot accommodate AK/QZ/FD and Tiger and Cebu Pacific under one roof.

Work on Changi Airport’s Project Jewel begins

By Sharon See | 05 Dec 2014 Friday | 15:43

 

SINGAPORE: Work on Changi Airport’s Project Jewel, a mixed-use complex featuring attractions, retail offerings, a hotel and facilities for airport operations, began on Friday (Dec 5).

 

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said the complex will enhance the “iconic status” of Changi Airport. “It will raise Changi Airport's appeal as a stop-over hub and help Singapore capture a larger mindshare of the travelling public. Passengers will enjoy a better experience," he said.

 

"Jewel will also be another interesting destination for Singaporeans to enjoy with our family and friends. With its beautiful garden and lush greenery, Jewel will be an extension of our Garden City at the airport," Mr Lui added.

 

Jewel Changi Airport will be seamlessly integrated with an expanded Terminal 1, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said.

Its unique architecture and design – featuring a dome-shaped glass roof and indoor waterfall – and its lifestyle offerings were unveiled at the ceremony. The complex will also house one of the largest indoor collections of plants in Singapore over 22,000 sqm of space.

 

One of its centrepiece attractions will be the Forest Valley, a five-storey garden filled with thousands of trees, plants, ferns and shrubs. It will also feature a 40-metre-high Rain Vortex, set to be the world's tallest indoor waterfall.

 

Beyond attractions and shopping offerings, CAG said there will be facilities in Jewel to enhance passengers' journey. These include an integrated multi-modal transport lounge offering dedicated services for fly-cruise and fly-coach passengers, such as ticketing, issuance of boarding passes and baggage transfer services. The complex will also have its own hotel, with about 130 rooms operated by international hotel brand YOTEL.

 

The groundbreaking ceremony also marked the commencement of expansion works for T1, which will be carried out alongside the construction of the Jewel complex.

The redevelopment of the 3.5ha site at Terminal 1, formerly an open-air car park, would allow the terminal to increase its passenger handling capacity to 24 million passengers per annum, up from 17.7 million in 2013. The expansion adds 70 per cent to the floor area of the arrival and baggage halls.

 

Mr Lui said: "Singaporeans have a soft spot for Changi Airport in our hearts. Over the past 30 years, we have built up a deep emotional attachment with the airport, being the first touchpoint evoking feelings of home and familiarity after having been away overseas. I believe that Jewel will deepen Singaporeans' attachment to Changi, besides being a showcase of Singapore to the rest of the world."

Construction begins Singapore airport’s ‘Jewel’
By Chris Sleight | 10 February 2015 Tuesday
 
Construction has begun on the Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel), a mixed-use complex at Singapore’s international airport.
 
Located in front of Terminal 1, Jewel is designed to increase Singapore’s appeal as a stopover point for travellers. It sits on a 3.5 ha site with a gross floor area of some 134,000 m2 across five above-ground and five basement levels. It will increase Terminal 1’s capacity to 24 million passengers per year, while providing pedestrian connections to Terminals 2 and 3. It is also linked to the airport’s mass rapid transit (MRT) system
 
Attractions within Jewel include a 40 m high ‘Rain Vortex’, which is expected to be the world’s tallest indoor waterfall once complete. Another will be the Forest Valley, a five-storey garden filled with thousands of trees, plants, ferns and shrubs. Jewel will also include shops and hotels alongside airport operations.
 
Mott MacDonald is the building services consultant for the development. CheeChuan Tan, project director, at the company said, “Jewel will be an iconic development at Changi Airport. The combination of facilities, all available under one roof, will be a first in Singapore and we are proud to be a part of this exciting and challenging project.”
 
“The project includes various sustainable features such as optimised chilled and condenser water pipe routing to minimise the power required for pump usage, as well as rainwater harvesting for use in plant irrigation. Condensate water from air handling units will also be recycled, while hot water will be generated through the use of heat pumps.” 
 
The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2018.

From past remarks by Singapore's Prime Minister, it is also known that there is recognition that global warming and rising sea levels could be a problem for Singapore. As such, it appears that Terminal 5 may be built with some form of "elevation" and I gather so will its connected infrastructure. It remains to be seen how this is achieved as it is no use having inundated runways and tarmac.

 

I think KLIA has held up very well and continues to be among the most pleasant airport to start, end or transfer in one's journey. It sure beats Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport and with the right people (with strategic thinking), it could continue to stay ahead of others in Asia. Numbers isn't everything ... for me, it is the experience that counts. The only two issues I have with KLIA are food and transfer between KLIA and KLIA2. If London-Heathrow can provide a complimentary train transfer using the Heathrow Express, I do not see why KLIA-KLIA2 transfer requires a charge. Many transfer passengers may not have Ringgit in their wallets and purses.

AirAsia Group, Korean Air and Vietnam Airlines will move to T4, joining Cathay Pacific.

It'll be much better if Changi can assign airlines to terminals based on alliances.
