Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 (T2) is partially reopened to accommodate the expected increase in passenger traffic in the months ahead. It was closed since May 2020 for upgrading and expansion works, which will raise the terminal’s capacity by 5 million to 28 million passenger movements per year when completed by 2024.
In this first phase of T2’s progressive reopening, a number of key touchpoints at the southern wing are ready for flight operations. For instance, a larger Arrival Immigration Hall is now available at T2 with more automated immigration facilities to serve Singaporeans and residents who have enrolled their iris and facial biometrics with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, as well as eligible foreign visitors who have done the same upon their arrival in Singapore. The number of automated immigration lanes will be increased as more passengers are enrolled. Special assistance lanes are also provided at T2, featuring a wider width than conventional lanes to assist passengers with mobility aids and big family groups to clear immigration more easily. Moreover, in the Baggage Claim Hall, one of the three collection belts has been lengthened to handle more bags.
T2 will reopen in phases over the next two years to support Changi’s recovery as a regional air hub. – Construction+ Online
