The newly built premise is build replacing a budget terminal and by that means efficiently catering the growing traffic of the Changi airport. An official estimate indicates T4 will be able to serve 16 million passengers throughout the year hence augmenting the overall Airport’s capacity to 82 million. Enjoying an area as large as 27 football grounds, the T4 of Changi Airport is designed to be breathtakingly beautiful. It has spacious and transparent interiors which are pleasant for bidding farewell to near and dear ones. The terminal is pounded with lush green environment comprising of more than 340 species of plants. It is a visual treat for passengers to be welcomed by lovely fauna varieties from China, India and Southeast Asia. The New Terminal which is set to officially operate by the end of 2017 has deployed the FAST@Changi concept for hassle free and less time taking services to the passengers. This could be achieved by introducing automation at various steps like departure immigration, check-in, bag drop etc.
Prior to the launch, the terminal authorities had organized an Open Day for the inquisitive and enthusiastic public to witness the beauty of T4 from very near. The event was held from Aug 7 to Aug 20 daily, from 9am to 6pm, for common people who registered for it on the official website of Changi Airport. Overall, the airport authorities had planned for 200,000 entries via these registrations and not to anyone’s surprise, it was a houseful show.
The 9th of August is a day of extreme significance for every citizen of Singapore. Gumtoo has been an active participant on this day with its tailored National Day tattoos for the National Day Parade. However, the use of these NDP tattoos were not only limited to the Parade. National Day tattoos were also distributed to visitors of the T4 on the Singapore’s National Day. The NDP Tattoos were Special edition customised for the NDP. They were simple yet delivering the essence of National Day. Gumtoo also came up with exclusive website for the NDP lot of tattoos, www.ndptemporarytattoos.com.
The visit to T4 on Open day was a pleasing experience overall. People were in awe of the new wing of Singapore’s Changi Airport. T4 offers mesmerizing bundle of attractions glued with both culture and technology. There are enchanting immersive LED displays, theatre performances based on the Peranakan Love Story, and heritage-themed façades. These are some of the many deliverables at the T4 which moonstruck the visitors. Coupled with the noteworthy NDP special Tattoo, the public could not have got a better experience of T4. The Joy of dwelling into the treats of T4 was seen on the faces on visitors. The national Day Visitors, apart from the smile expressed their joy with the NDP Tattoo on their bodies.
Not only Authorities but Singapore as a whole is eagerly waiting for the 31st of October 2017. It is then when the first flight will take off from the ambitious new wing. The T4 will augment a passenger’s travel experience to new heights. With incorporation of automation technologies it will offer enhanced operational efficiency thereby raising the bar for passenger satisfaction.
