Closure of Budget Terminal
The Budget Terminal opened for operations on 26 March 2006. It was built in response to the emerging trend of budget airlines in Asia.
To make way for the construction of Terminal 4, the Budget Terminal will be closed. This is to cater to the continued growth of air traffic at Changi Airport and further strengthen Singapore’s air hub status.
<UPDATE> With the closure of the Budget Terminal (BT) at Singapore Changi Airport on 25 September 2012, airlines previously operating at the terminal – Berjaya Air, Cebu Pacific, Firefly, Mandala Airlines, South East Asian Airlines and Tiger Airways – have moved their operations to Terminal 2.
CAG has also reassigned the check-in counters for existing carriers in Terminal 2 to accommodate the BT airlines. The revised list of check-in counters at Terminal 2 can be found in the media release and here.
Improvements were made to key touch points in Terminal 2 to enhance the travelling experience for passengers. For example, the Departure and Arrival Immigration areas were upgraded to increase the number of automated immigration gantries. In addition, the taxi waiting area in the Arrival Hall has been expanded and additional taxi bays constructed.
With more passengers coming through Terminal 2, manpower numbers of ancillary service providers such as trolley retrievers, taxi coordinators and cleaners were boosted. CAG is also working with key partners such as the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore, Singapore Customs and Certis CISCO to ensure adequate manning, especially during peak hours.
