Airports in Singapore

Singapore Changi Airport (SIN)

Overview

Singapore's Changi Airport is modern, stylish and visitor friendly. As a central transport hub in Asia, Changi connects passengers to over 200 destinations around the world. Changi takes airports to a whole new level, with carpeted floors, comfy couches, butterfly gardens and many other accessories specifically designed to allow passengers relaxation time while in transit.

The airport has showers, change rooms, massage stations, a swimming pool, arcade games, putt-putt courses and spas as well as hundreds of shops, duty-free stores and restaurants. All the amenities and conveniences at Changi, as well as the possibility of a quick and easy transfer into town, make it an airport worth using while flying in the region.

Location

The airport is located 14 miles (23km) from the city.

Getting to the city

The MRT train departs from Changi Airport MRT Station, located under Terminals 2 and 3. Trains depart from 5.30am to midnight, cost about S$3, and take around 27 minutes. A public bus service to the city has regular departures from 6am to midnight, and can be found in the lower levels of each terminal. The 1 hour journey costs about S$2. In addition there is an airport shuttle service between the airport and the city centre and most hotels in Singapore; the buses leave when all six seats have been filled or every 15 to 30 minutes. The cost is about S$9 per adult, S$6 per child.
