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

+L Dion don't have to worry, there are people to assist you if some issues are wrong or you have queries. It's just less people working in the area.

At some levels, I would feel more stress, my blood pressure would skyrocket without some levels of human existence. It is like I call for customer service, and all I get is speaking to robot with one size fits all.
I think full automation is the most important as a aviation master!!’

That luggage system is pretty awesome. Next year they should put the passengers on the luggage carts to take them to the gate and exit.

Amazing! The mostly (if not, only) human life-form moving through this terminal and eventually, throughout the airport, will be the passengers

It's very nice. Singaporeans are spoiled. It's quite long quite the people movers are very efficient. Kinda like a higly automated shopping and entertainment hub with a lot of greenery for an relaxing nearly idyllic experience. Very fast immigration and security checks as per usual.

Thanks NatGeo fro bringing many full episodes of documentary to youtube. I always love your documentaray since I was a kid but nowadays, it's hard for me to find the original NatGeo contents other than unofficial reupload. Thanks again and I hope you'd bring more full episodes to youtube.

All this automation o.O But I guess in a small country that has limited human resources it is a necessity. Plus, machines don't take days off.

use technology to help people in their life not replace their jobs with robots? automation looks fun and new but its not....y are u replacing humans with AI
Ryan Buccat (11 days ago)
You can’t totally say fully automated without any contact to ground staff! Ground staff still in need. Why? What happen when system power down? Or in times of natural calamities? What happen when there is delayed plane either arrival or departure? Very funny! Ground staff still in need.

We need to integrate more of the facial photo scanning. This way, if someone commits a crime or attempts to, we have their face already scanned.

I spent like 4 hours in this airport alone because my flight was delayed. Normally we felt bore in an airport But for me I felt like hope I could spent some more times there because everything there is so neat and clean. The best thing I like was they have passenger review kisoks in immigration and also in toilet which is really very unique and new to me (idk if any other airport have this or not)

When I travel, I don't care about art or greenery. Nor has automation ever contributed to an enhancement of my travel experience. In an airport, I would like to have a private pod / booth when I can secure my luggage. I also want a clear, step by step process in a minimal environment.

William Levy (13 days ago)
A well run airport gets to the point. People want to get on their plane in as little time as possible. This Is mostly frivolous b.s. If this is privately funded, I'm not offended by it. If this was paid for by taxes I wouldn't be happy with that. I'm more concerned with the quality of service and condition of planes. Nothing else. The city or destination is what I'm interested in. Not an airport. Gtfoohwt

Joseph Lim (14 days ago)
Yep this is the further no doubt. So we’re going from person to person check in to person to computer check in. Before you know it you’ll be doing to 3D image of check in personnel. And then the image will be so real you think we’re back to person to person check in just like the old days. Until you start losing your temper and the check in personnel does not even blink at your behaviour as they tries to assimilate you back into the check in process. Then onto the next person.

@National Geographic - your editors and their technical managers are incompetent. The audio channels are out of sync/out of phase...this is such a simple but stupid problem.

Actually Washington's Corrupt corrupt Political apparatus along with The nations Presidents have squandered Trillions on Illegal wars.
dennytenny (12 days ago)
You do understand that in the US, building an airport requires approval and funding from not just the state but also the Federal government. You can't build an airport in the US without approval from most likely hundreds of governmental agencies.

+Naweed sediq state is government smart guy.
Naweed sediq (13 days ago)
you are an idiot. in the US every state decide what kind of airport they want not the government and also in US everything is about making money so it doesn't matter to have shiny airports. the US is massive and has a powerful and the most independent economy in the world so it does not need to build shiny airports to attract people

IAM really not that impressed. Especially that they are using the old Xbox Kinect to scan bags what a joke. Also that ugly carpet really clashes with the hi tech atmosphere.

I love this airport. Very spacious, beautiful architecture and the best part of all as a cigarette smoker I love their smoking area. It's in a garden where you can de-stress and light up a cig. Unlike other airports, their smoking area is cramped, dirty and small.
