Jewel Changi Airport to Open Doors by April 2019

Just when you thought the Singapore Changi Airport couldn’t get any better, a jaw-dropping new addition called the “Jewel Changi Airport” is set to open its doors to the public by April 7.

The massive 130,000 square-meter complex will have a total of 10 floors, five of which will be underground.

Features to look forward to include over 200 shopping and F&B outlets, lush gardens, a 130-cabin YOTELAIR airport hotel, and check-in counters for travelers.

But the focal point, and one of the most spectacular feature of the Jewel, is the seven-storey waterfall, which will pour down from the glassdome’s roof.

Designed by renowned Moshe Safdie of Safdie Architects, the indoor rain vortex will be the tallest of its kind in the world, pouring at a rate of 10,000 gallons of water a minute.

The donut-shaped dome will be the airport’s central hub as it will connect three out of its four terminals.

Later on in the year, visitors can expect more exciting additions such as Discovery Slides, Canopy Mazes, Sky Nets, and other interactive facilities that everyone can enjoy.

The project costs a whopping $1.3 billion, and was inspired by Singapore’s reputation as a “City in a Garden”.

Already crowned “best airport in the world” for six years in a row and with almost 600 awards under its belt, the Changi Airport constantly shatters the traveler’s idea of what an airport is supposed to be.
