Terminal 2 reopens: Singapore-Changi can now hold 90 million passengers – and it’s got a great view

Lufthansa and Swiss are also at home in Changi Airport’s Terminal 2. The completely rebuilt and expanded T2 has now reopened – with new attractions.

No delay – on the contrary. After three and a half years of construction and expansion work, Terminal 2 (T2) at Singapore Changi Airport has fully reopened ahead of schedule. This means that all four terminals at the airport are now operational.

“The completion of T2 is timely and essential to meet capacity needs in anticipation of a full recovery of travel to pre-Covid levels in 2024,” the airport said. “The T2 expansion project has increased Changi’s capacity by five million passengers per year, bringing the airport’s total handling capacity to 90 million per year.”

Wonderfall, Dreamscape and an additional 21,000 square feet

The T2’s design philosophy is based on themes inspired by nature. At the heart of the T2 departure hall is a 14-meter high digital waterfall called The Wonderfall. In the transit area there is a new park called Dreamscape with a digital sky that changes colors depending on the time of day.

T2 has been expanded by more than 21,000 square metres. Through the centralized and shared “Fast and Seamless Travel Area”, the number of automatic check-in machines and baggage drop machines has almost doubled. It is also the first station in Changi to have special automated lanes for people with disabilities or young children when entering and leaving.

Lufthansa and Swiss are also at home in Terminal 2

16 airlines operate at Terminal 2: Air India, Air India Express, Air Japan, Air Macau, All Nippon Airways, Etihad Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Firefly, IndiGo, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei Airlines, Air India Sichuan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Swiss Air, and United. Airlines. Together they offer flights to 40 destinations. Since May 2022, when the south wing was reopened to arrivals from the terminal for the first time, T2 has handled nearly 10 million passengers.
