Singapore airport: Terminal 2 reopens
Complete reactivation expected by the end of October with new shops and restaurants
The north wing of Terminal 2 of Singapore Changi International Airport reopens today with the first take-offs and arrivals scheduled. The works, lasted three and a half years, involve the renovation, modernization and expansion of the infrastructure, which today has 15,500 square meters of additional space. Complete reactivation is expected by the end of October 2023, with the opening of shops and restaurants.
T2 was closed in May 2020 when passenger numbers collapsed due to the pandemic. The airport management company had therefore taken advantage of the health crisis to modernize the airport. The southern wing of Terminal 2 was reopened, in several phases, in 2022: first the security gates, then the baggage claim and boarding area, finally the departure hall. Now the services and facilities of the north wing are also available for passengers again.
According to a statement from airport operator Changi Airport Group (CAG), the first flights scheduled today at the northern wing of T2 will be operated by airlines Singapore Airlines, Germany's Lufthansa and Swiss International Air Lines. At the end of October the number of operating airlines will increase from 12 to 16, including Air Japan, All Nippon Airways, Etihad Airways and India's IndiGo.
