One of My Favorite Airports Announces Expansion…with waterfalls

Already a winner of many best airport awards, Singapore’s Changi Airport has announced a $1.5 billion expansion plan. From the press release:

The centerpiece of the 1.4 million-square-foot airport expansion is a glass-and-steel bio-dome that connects Terminals 1, 2, and 3 via glass-enclosed walkways.  On the dome’s top floor will be a tranquil, indoor garden where travelers will be treated to the calming sounds of a cascading waterfall that will pour from the dome’s roof. The project also includes five stories of retail shops and another five stories of underground parking. Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of the Changi Airport Group, said in a statement: “We are confident that Project Jewel will be a world-class attraction near home that Singaporeans will not only enjoy immensely but be proud of.”

Completion of the project is expected at the end of 2018.

Don’t forget that the airport already has many gardens and nature trails, including a butterfly garden.

  1. Changi is a great airport which I have enjoyed transiting especially when coupled with SIngapore’s Private Room.

    What I don’t get is the reason why they keep expanding. It seems like Singapore is a bit of an odd location geographically especially in light of the middle east carriers taking away much of the Europe/Asia connecting traffic.
