In 2000, they pioneered again, creating the first polycarbonate case on the market. Designed and engineered in Germany, Rimowa combines heritage and craftsmanship with the rigours of modern technology. In 2017, Rimowa joined LVMH Group.

Occupying 28,000 sqm, equivalent to three football fields, the MBCCS is designed as an architectural icon with the capability to accommodate some of the world's largest ships. The terminal features a spacious arrival and departure hall as well as a large ground transportation area to ensure a smooth and seamless experience for passengers.
MBCCS is set to expand as regional traffic grows. MBCCS, which has two berths now, has enough capacity to survive the next 3-5 years. More berths needed as Marina Bay terminal is set to receive over one million passengers a year
With passenger numbers at MBCCS likely to cross the 1-million-passenger mark this financial year, the terminal is taking steps to avoid possible congestion by tapping smart technology.
By September 2019, a total of 460 cameras, each capable of clicking 750 images a second, will be installed at MBCC with sensors fixed at key locations such as the check-in and baggage handling areas.
Today, Seletar Airport is Singapore’s second civilian airport, serving general aviation (such as training, medical evacuation & MRO flights) and business aviation (private jets) users. The current terminal will be torn down when the new facility opens.
The new, two-storey terminal is sited at the eastern side of Seletar Airport. It will have a gross floor area of 9,500 square metres, of which 500 square metres will be dedicated to serving business aviation passengers.
Designed for around 700,000 passenger movements per annum, the building will be significantly larger than the current terminal, which handled about 26,700 passenger movements in 2015. This will support the relocation of scheduled turboprop flights from Changi Airport to Seletar Airport upon the completion of the new terminal in end-2018.
The layout of the new terminal is dictated by clean lines and a functional design to keep the travel experience simple and efficient for all passengers. Passenger operations will take place on the ground floor, with a clear separation between the departure and arrival areas. To handle scheduled commercial flights, the departure area will have 4 check-in counters, four immigration counters, two security screening stations and a gate holdroom which can seat close to 200 passengers. Departing passengers will be able to go through check-in, immigration and security screening in a fuss-free manner via a straightforward route, enabling a quick and stress-free boarding process for passengers.
Passengers travelling on chartered business jets and private jets can look forward to a private drop-off area and a dedicated check-in area where they will be able to enjoy quick pre-departure clearance in a private and exclusive setting. The terminal will also feature amenities such a lounge area and dedicated immigration and security screening areas for these passengers.
Drawing inspiration from its lush and serene surroundings, the new terminal will sport a modern tropical look on the façade and in the interiors. The design blends warm woody tones with a theme of nature, with a landscaped garden in the middle of the terminal. Accessible from the drop-off area at the entrance, the garden will provide a calm oasis for departing passengers and well-wishers.
On the airside, passengers will be able to board their flights conveniently with 3 aircraft parking stands adjacent to the terminal. This reduces the need for passengers to be bussed, enabling greater operational efficiency and faster aircraft turnaround time. The three aircraft parking stands will be supplemented by another 60 located at the rest of the airport.

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.
A new Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) will be built at Seletar Airport to accommodate a growth in air traffic.

Construction is set to start in October, and the terminal building is expected to be ready by the end of 2018.
