SINGAPORE’S Changi Airport is way ahead of the game when it comes to teching up its terminals and beefing up its facilities.
Recently, its brand spanking new Terminal 4 unveiled its only independent pay-per-use lounge. Changi Airport also announced exciting features for its Terminal 1 expansion, slated to open in early 2019.
And it doesn’t stop there.
The airport has installed a new playground at Terminal 4, something that both children and adults will love.
Chandelier, the five-story crimson red playground, features climbing nets and fireman poles for people to slide down at two-meter intervals.
Built using 10 kilometers of rope and supported by 15 tonnes of steel, it’s shaped in a double helix with a weaved tapestry steel core.

Said to be the airport’s “largest art installation”, the playground is anchored to the ceiling and the ground and can admit up to 50 people at a time.
There is no fee to use the playground and it will be open 24 hours for passengers.
Chandelier is located within the departure lounge of Terminal 4 and will be opened to passengers in a few weeks’ time.
Spread over an area of 225,000 square meters, the relatively new Terminal 4 is home to 11 major airlines including Cathay Pacific and AirAsia, but it won’t be the last expansion that we’ll be seeing from Changi Airport.
In 2030, Changi Airport will officiate the opening of its giant Terminal 5.
Changi’s four passenger terminals can now accommodate up to 82 million passengers a year. The giant Terminal 5 will accommodate the growing number of travelers.
