Changi East in 2017 and Beyond

Spanning a massive 1,080 hectares (equivalent to more than 660 football fields), the Changi East project is Changi Airport’s largest development in its history.  An inter-agency Changi 2036 Steering Committee was established in 2012 to develop a plan for this mammoth expansion for Changi, which included a recommendation to construct a fifth terminal, Terminal 5 (T5).

Besides T5, the scope of works for this mega-project also includes the operationalisation of a three-runway system, the construction of tunnels and other underground systems, and the development of cargo complexes and other supporting infrastructure.  Being a greenfield development site, located to the east of the existing airport (hence the name Changi East), basic infrastructure, including utilities, water management systems, ground transportation (road and MRT) will need to be built and this will take several years before airport facilities are commissioned.

While the concept of an integrated duty-free zone has been done in some airports around the world, Changi Airport is the first to feature 2 operators within the same zone. This is the result of a strong tripartite collaboration between Changi Airport and the two anchor duty-free operators, DFS and Shilla Duty Free.
