Flight Transfer

How do I ensure that I am eligible to be transferred within transit?

To be able to transfer flights without clearing immigration, you would have to have purchased transfer facilities as part of your flights. Most connecting flights purchased together would already have transfer facilities included. Do check with your purchasing agent if you are unsure.

If transfer facilities are not included in your flight tickets, please clear arrival immigration, collect your checked-in bags from the arrival carousel (if any), and proceed to your check-in counter for your next flight. Please ensure that you have the required documents for immigration clearance and entry into Singapore. You may check if you are eligible for the Visa Free Transit Facility here

Making Your Connection Flight

If you have your boarding pass for the connecting flight, and have your bags checked-through to your final destination

Please refer to any Flight Information displays around transit, or our friendly Changi Experience Agents (CEAs) for more information on getting to your departure gate. 

To check in your bags have been checked-through to the final destination, you may look at the check-in bags receipt that the check-in agent should have issued you at point of check-in. If the receipt indicates SIN, your bags are only checked-through to Changi Airport. 

If you have your boarding pass, but your checked-in bags are only sent to Changi

Please proceed to your nearest transfer lounge/ counter. At the transfer lounge, you may refer to the Transfer Information Passenger Display System (TIPDS) to find out which transfer counter you can request for your checked-in bags to be transferred to your departing flight.

If you do not have your boarding pass and are eligible for transfer within transit

Please proceed to your nearest transfer lounge/ counter. At the transfer lounge, you may refer to the Transfer Information Passenger Display System (TIPDS) to find out which transfer counter you should proceed to. The check-in agent here will process your check-in for your departure flight.
