Changi Airport Group (CAG) has awarded all
concession contracts for retail, food & beverage (F&B) and service
outlets at its new Terminal 4 (T4).
With more than 80 outlets over 16,000 square
metres, T4 has attracted many international and
local retail and F&B operators, with over a quarter launching
their maiden airport presence at T4.
For the first
time in Changi Airport, two core duty-free categories – Liquor &
Tobacco and Cosmetics & Perfumes, will combine and operate in a
single integrated duty-free zone in the transit area. Located just
after centralised immigration and security screening, passengers
will be able to shop for their favourite duty-free purchases from
both product categories seamlessly and combine all their duty-free
purchases in a single transaction.

will then be greeted with a cluster of 11-metre high double-volume façade outlets,
with visually impactful storefront designs. This zone will offer a
selection of popular retail brands - Charles & Keith, Coach & Furla, Gassan Watches, Michael Kors,
The Cocoa Trees and TWG Tea Boutique.

zone, inspired by Peranakan shophouses nestled around Singapore,
and designed to take passengers a step back in time while shopping
and dining. This zone will house familiar traditional brands Bee Cheng Hiang, Bengawan Solo, Curry Times, Eu Yan Sang and Heavenly

growth for Changi Airport; and we are using the opportunity to
celebrate the idea of shopping as a fun and interactive experience
for our passengers. From the impressive double-volume façade shops
to a heritage-themed zone, passengers will be able to indulge in a wide variety of fashionable shopping and interesting dining
options. We are excited to welcome the new tenants that are
