As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, airlines and airports around the world are facing the challenge of drastically reduced air traffic. Over at Changi Airport, resources have been optimised to help Changi and its airport partners save on running costs.
Despite this, keeping Changi operational is crucial as the air hub continues receiving cargo flights carrying essential medical supplies and food, as well as facilitating humanitarian aid for others around the world.
But perhaps most importantly, keeping Changi open represents the only way for some to connect with their loved ones, especially for Singaporeans coming home and for foreign nationals who want to go home.
Did you know that as of May 2020, there are still more than an average of 10 departing and 10 arriving flights each day?
Changi Journey takes a closer look at how these flights are facilitated and the extra precautionary measures put in place to keep passengers safe.
Home sweet home
For Singaporeans and residents landing at Changi, safe distancing and the donning of masks are now new norms that they will need to get accustomed to.
From the moment they leave the airplane, passengers will be channeled towards the immigration area on a fixed route.
