Changi Airport Group (CAG) has announced the completion of construction for its new passenger terminal building, Terminal 4 (T4). The next stage of development will be focused on its interior fittings, as well as preparing it for operations as the terminal will open in the second half of the year.
Construction work on the new terminal, located at the southern end of Changi Airport, commenced in early 2014. In addition to the two-storey passenger terminal building, the construction involved the development of two multi-storey car parks providing 1,700 parking spaces, a two-storey taxi holding area, as well as three vehicular and pedestrian bridges spanning across Airport Boulevard to create new channels of access to T4.
A 68-metre high ramp control tower has also been constructed to enhance air traffic controllers’ management of aircraft movements in the apron and taxiways around the terminal. Completed in under three years, the T4 project involved over 4,000 workers at the peak of its construction works.
For the first time at Changi Airport, T4 will see a terminal-wide implementation of fast and seamless travel (FAST) initiatives to enhance passenger experience and operational efficiency. The preparatory works in the lead-up to its opening will involve the installation and testing of key airport systems and processes including the new FAST self-service and automated options covering check-in, bag-drop, immigration clearance and boarding.
There will also be training and familiarisation programmes organised for airport staff and partners, to prepare them for operations in the new terminal.
UK Sandwich Cafe Chain, Pret A Manger is coming to Singapore in Q2 of 2017. Their first Singapore outlet will be at Changi Airport Terminal 3.
Pret first opened in London in 1986. College friends, Sinclair and Julian, made proper sandwiches avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the 'prepared' and 'fast' food on the market. The two of them had woefully little experience in the world of business. They created the sort of food they craved but couldn't find anywhere else.
Pret operates a bit like a restaurant. They build a kitchen in (or very near) every shop. You won’t find ‘sell by’ dates on their fresh sandwiches and salads. They offer our unsold food to charity at the end of each day rather than keep it over.
They avoid the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much ‘prepared’ and ‘fast’ food. Their ingredients are delivered early every day. They don’t mind that fresh and fragile ingredients go off quickly – they start from scratch each morning.
