The steep decline in passenger movement due to coronavirus pandemic has lead Changi Airport Group (CAG) to suspend the T2 operations for 18 months, starting 1st May 2020.

This move will not only allow CAG and its partners to cut down on operational costs but also allow the current expansion works being carried out at T2 to be accelerated. This will allow the current completion date in 2024 to be brought forward by up to one year

Operations at T4 have also been considerably reduced, with lesser number of boarding gates being used due to less number of airlines operating. After the last flight departure, shops in the terminal have also been allowed to close early. CAG stated that In case the airlines currently operating here choose to suspend their operations or reschedule their flight schedules, the operations at T4 may also be suspended temporarily, until Airlines resume their operations.

“With airlines suspending flights in response to the sharply reduced travel demand, the consolidation efforts seek to help our airport partners during this difficult time. While the scale of our operations will be reduced in the near term, Changi Airport remains open to serve the air freight and passenger flights that continue to operate. Even as our airport capacity is being optimised for the current situation, we will have the flexibility and we stand ready to ramp up operations quickly once the recovery takes place” Said Mr. Tan Lye Teck, CAG’s Executive Vice President of Airport Management
