World Best Airport announces its plans to keep getting better

By: Shania Brendon
Singapore’s Changi Airport was crowned the best airport in the world at the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards in Geneva.  The airport has consistently maintained its reputation for its extremely attentive passenger experience. However, just when we thought the airport has everything the passengers’ need, the country keeps surprising us. Recently, Singapore has announced its major expansion plans to add a much impressive facility to its airport such that it will improve passenger experience by providing larger passenger capacity and entertainment facilities.

Singapore’s upscale new addition plan is named the “Project Jewel” and is designed by the popular architect – Moshe Safdie, the man behind the artistic Marina Bay Sands. The Project jewel covers a transformation of a 3.5 hectare plot of land that would be given a mixed architectural look featuring restaurants, shops, massive indoor garden with a waterfall. The project jewel would be completed and scheduled to be opened in 2018. In addition, the Terminal 1 of Changi Airport would be expanded for more space for other facilities such as larger arrival hall, baggage claims and taxi bays while it loses a car park.

The Jewel will be the ultimate world-class destination of glass and steel which undoubtedly would capture the hearts of everyone from the moment they arrive in Singapore. Changi Airport has seamlessly connected the passengers to over 270 cities across the globe and has been one of the favourite airports. Henceforth, upon completion of the project jewel, Changi Airport will definitely be second to none.
