The first step to this expansion is the opening of its new terminal – T4.

Changi Airport is one of the most advanced airports in the world. What intrigues you the most about the technology used in Terminal 4?

What is Changi airport budget for terminal 4 overall construction?
tocrob (5 days ago)
The cost came to ~USD$720 million. Structurally, it's a typical box like a warehouse. Most of the money was spent on the creative/technological elements as documented in the video.

No matter how hard China tries, they can never cover up their terrible air pollution.

There is a fact: Singapore does not have any domestic flight but Singapore Airlines and Changi airport are the best in the World.
Richard Foord (24 days ago)
I wonder where the money for this and the amazing marina design comes from. Their education in pre schools are also one of the best I've seen.

What benefits does this airport give to the average Singaporean ?? Every Terminal is foot by taxpayers money .. So what return do the average Singaporean get ? Jobs ... With the Gov seeking to increase the retirement after , now even old workers , even if they have multiple illness can find joss like cleaning the 4 terminals toilets . But don’t ever go to public toilet , foreigners / tourist should never visit those cause no one cleans those unimportant toilets used by average Singaporeans

I have to say the best thing about the Changi airport is the free wifi, you don't need to put in your number, you just need to scan your passport and it gives you an otp. the speeds are very good as well, about Mbps up and down...

Singaporean here! There are people who actually hang out at the airport. I understand that other airports in other countries is a nightmare to be in but we like to chill here and see the planes.

Singapore is Full with Artificial creations, artificial smiles, happiness, Trees ....etc. All of the citizens hide their unhappiness, stress and try to happy with artificial creations. I’ve been there for 6 months and become boring and unpleasant to live more.

You have Singapore here and many other countries improving its gateway to the world, paving their way towards progressiveness and then there’s America with trump building a wall.
Nancy Melendez (3 months ago)
They mention the fusion of Chines, Indian and Western Culture but they forgot to mention Malaysian Culture. Singapur is connected and part of Malaysia, was separated not too long ago. This shows what happens everywhere there is an invasion, people take over and forget the mother citizens of that country.
Anna Lim (2 months ago)
@Nancy Melendez Singapore merged with Malaya for less than 2 years after British rule, and has been independent for over 50 years since then, not to mention the historical records that can be traced back to the 13th century. Not a strong case for “invasion” and “mother citizens”, especially considering Singapore is mostly made up of the descendants of immigrants from diverse backgrounds ranging from Chinese to Yemeni heritage.

I was raised in the US to believe that we are the best country in the world but, seeing the modern progress in Asia like in Singapore, I don't see the same level of changes nor even a national fervor to change. Our skyscrapers are old and uninteresting, airports are drabby, streets full of potholes, bridges falling apart, politicians squabbling all the time and crazy people attacking strangers. I am questioning things. The US will soon be a "developing country" if we don't wake up.

Stephan Porancea (2 months ago)
The feeling that you are entering a developing country upon landing in the US is strikingly obvious. From infrastructure to peoples' behavior it is evident that something went terribly wrong in "the best country in the world". Yeah, time to wake up.

To be rendered jobless there has to be jobs in the first place... T4 is completely new. Where would the original jobs come from?

Are you dumb? Who's going to ensure that they are working fine? Who's going to fix the equipement? Who's going to redesign them? Who's going to reinvent? Who will be the one to come uo with nee ideas? Doofus. Technology has actually lowered the need for blue collared jobs and created safer jobs for peopls. If you read up, technology has helped to increase job opportunities.

The only guy that looks like he owns his contribution and really knows inside out about his stuff is the hoticulture manager, the indian guu. The rest of the chinese managers looks lile they r just supervising other contractors and machinery and processes without any intellectual input to the process. One actually said its hard since there is no reference. They must only trust their vendor n suppliers. Some seems to be struggling at automation. Even on part of collecting historical pieces to display also like lost of themes oredi. Just my humble opinion
