Scoot will move its operations from
Terminal 2 (T2) to Terminal 1 (T1) at Singapore Changi Airport in
the last quarter of 2019.
Scoot CEO, Mr Lee Lik Hsin, said, “The move to T1 will be
beneficial for several reasons, chief of which being that it will
allow us to continue serving our growing customer base comfortably
and meet their needs for a fast and fuss-free pre-flight
experience. We are working hard to achieve a seamless transition
for our customers, employees and service partners, and we look
forward to welcoming everyone to our new home in T1 next year.”
To better support airlines for future growth, Changi Airport
has been undertaking upgrading works to expand the passenger handling capacity of T1, with the project expected to be fully
completed in 2019.
At the Arrival level, an all-new and expanded Meeters & Greeters Hall has welcomed travellers since April 2018.
The Arrival level will be seamlessly integrated with Level 1 of
Jewel Changi Airport when it opens next year. The Baggage Claim
Hall is also being expanded to incorporate more baggage claim
belts to serve more arriving flights.
In the T1 Departure
Hall, refurbishment work has just been completed. The upgraded
facility features a central Fast and Seamless Travel (FAST) Zone
where passengers can check in and drop off their bags at the
self-service automated machines.
With these upgrades
and expansion works, T1 is ready to handle the increased scale of
operations that Scoot’s projected growth will bring. Scoot
customers can look forward to a more intuitive check-in flow, as
well as a refreshed and more spacious terminal experience at T1.
Managing Director of Airport Operations Management at
Changi Airport Group (CAG), Mr Jayson Goh, said, “CAG periodically
reviews the allocation of airlines across all terminals to provide
sufficient terminal capacity for future traffic growth. At the
same time, we hope to enhance passenger experience by optimising
the use of space for smooth airport operations. CAG will work
closely with Scoot to ensure that its relocation to T1 is seamless
for all its passengers.”
