From now till next year March, don’t surprised if you noticed renovations going on at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3.
Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 is building a new hangout area for friends and family to gather and will be ready around Christmas.
The new hangout area, the span of a basketball court, with a stepped amphitheatre and an extensive ultra high-definition screen for movies and football matches. It can hold about 200 people and the screen will be 6m by 3.5m.
There will likewise be a garden and shops added to the unused space at Basement 2.
Mr James Fong, vice-president for landside concessions at Changi Airport Group mentioned that “For the first time, we have dedicated an atrium space where loved ones can gather for occasions, screenings and performances.”
Visitors can look forward to a new garden with a fun art theme in Basement 1, Mr Fong said.
In addition, as part of the improvements, they will add 10 new shops and food outlets to T3’s Basement 2, which has around 50 retail, services, and food and beverage outlets.
T3’s Basement 2 is popular with families during school holidays and on weekends. Parents will bring their kids to the existing play activities including the Hello Kitty and Teddy & Me playgrounds. Mr Fong foresees that with the upcoming enhancements, it will bring the whole family experience with Changi to another level.
New Shops incorporate include:
- Terminal M by MOF
- A halal food hall serving a blend of Korean, Japanese and Chinese cuisines, with a flight-themed design.
- Ramen Champion
- Hokkaido Paradise
- Coffee Boy, which serves local food and beverages with a twist
- Saap Saap Thai and Saap Saap Thai Desserts
- Mr Teh Tarik Express (24 hours)
From time to time, the new shops will open from the middle of November to March next year.
Besides being an airport, Changi has turned into a shopping and eating paradise for people to visit. After that, with the upcoming Jewel opening at the end of March, it will be even a better place for people to visit. I believe this will be a good new for all east side residents.
