Singapore Airport (Changi Airport) is considered by many to be among the best in the world. Indeed, Singapore Airpor claimed the prestigious prize as the world’s best airport in the Skytrax World Airport Awards in Belgium for 2010. A truly modern marvel, Changi’s top-notch services and facilities make the experience of being in an airport not only a bearable experience for travellers but even a pleasurable one. The airport has three main terminals, a luxury terminal and a Budget Terminal, all connected by ‘people movers’ and a free skytrain system.
Changi Arrival and Departure – What to Expect
Flying into Changi Airport offers a bird’s eye view of Singapore’s vibrant and vital transport industry, from its large port dotted with ships from around the world to the airport itself with its gleaming terminals standing as a symbol to the city-state’s high aspirations as a global centre for trade and travel.
When departing from Singapore, Changi offers an “off-airport” check-in service, where you can check in using the phone, internet, fax or SMS before arrival to the airport, then, after coming to the airport, simply pick up the boarding pass and drop your baggage at a designated airport counter. For airport check-in, it is recommended to arrive at least 2 hours before flight departure.
