Four airlines to move to different terminals at Changi Airport

SINGAPORE - Four airlines will move their operations to different terminals at Changi Airport to optimise capacity utilisation across the airport's terminals.

Asiana Airlines (OZ) will move from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3 from September 30, 2013, while Lion Air (JT) will make the move from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 on October 18.

Meanwhile, two Filipino airlines - Philippine Airlines (PR) and PAL Express (2P) - will make the move to Terminal 1 from Terminal 2 on October 28.

With the relocation exercise, check-in rows within terminals will also be reassigned for a number of airlines at Changi Airport.

Mr Yeo Kia Thye, Changi Airport Group's (CAG) Senior Vice President for Airport Operations, said, "We review Changi Airport's terminal utilisation regularly as it is important to ensure that our infrastructure is best used to support the development plans of airlines and to ensure smooth airport operations for our passengers."

The exercise takes into consideration the growth plans of the airport's airline partners, and that infrastructure is in place to support the airlines' expansion.

During the transition period, directional signage will be in place to assist passengers, with information also posted on digital platforms to update them. Additional manpower will also be deployed to guide passengers to the correct terminals and check-in rows.
