Singapore Airshow 2018 Traffic Arrangements and Transportation Guidelines

The Singapore Airshow will take place at Changi Exhibition Centre from Tuesday, 6 February 2018 to Sunday, 11 February 2018.

 The following traffic arrangements and transportation guidelines will be effective from Monday, 29 January to Wednesday, 14 February 2018. Affected roads will reopen and all roads will be fully accessible from 6am onwards on Thursday, 15 February 2018.

If you are travelling to the Changi Exhibition Centre before the show starts, whether it be to set up your booth or for any other reason, we strongly recommend you to organise a taxi or make other arrangements to be picked up prior to leaving. Do not assume that taxis, or any other form of transport, will be available prior to the show beginning. We cannot stress this enough, as it can be quite a daunting experience, that we have witnessed firsthand, being all alone outside the exhibition centre with no idea of how to get back to your hotel. Plan ahead.
