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

The use of high tech for efficiency and they have mature workers, not mostly youth. Also they want passengers to be pacified through the cue process. They seem proud of their workplace and what they do there. So would I.

@Noel Ben Dunsky and @Wowthungsten, Changi Airport has decades of expertise in human experience. Their top priority and focus is not technology and automation but human experience, convenience and efficiency. I am absolutely sure they are totally aware of your concerns and has already incorporated the necessaries in the design and implementation of their services. This is why Changi airport has been voted by travellers as the world best airport year after year after year after.........

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.

What about personal manual wheelchair check in procedure since everything is automated? The passenger still needs to use it all the way to boarding.

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.

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.

No wonder this airport is the best in the world. Changi Airport is definitely a place to be. My experience was superb. I can't wait to be there again.

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.

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.

XBOX Kinects and CT scanners are used... Amazing.
BlackOrchid (1 month ago)
I wonder then if they are able to cut back on using air purification and atmospheric control systems within the building due to all the greenery? And with all the watering needing to be done they could use the green spaces for grey water treatment.

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

To those US people claiming the state is focusing in economy rather than in infrastructures. Get the fact that ASIA is leading the economy in the world and the market leader is China, no more US. Please do get the fact and that is why you guys started to reject our products as getting scared of ASIA's economy.

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.

Ryan Buccat (2 months 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 if 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.

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
