Changi Airport Group (CAG) has announced on Friday (5 May) that it has awarded all concession contracts for retail, food & beverage (F&B) and service outlets at its new Terminal 4 (T4) to more than 80 outlets within over 16,000 square metres.
CAG stated that T4 has attracted many international and local retail and F&B operators, with over a quarter launching their maiden airport presence at T4.
According to CAG, T4 will be a shopping and dining haven featuring popular brands, innovative concepts and unique experiential zones, presenting a vibrant shopping and delightful dining experience for both passengers and airport visitors.
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.
It will be located just after centralised immigration and security screening, where passengers can shop for their favourite duty-free purchases from both product categories seamlessly and combine all their duty-free purchases in a single transaction, bringing greater convenience and time savings.
From the integrated duty-free zone, passengers will come a cluster of 11-metre high double-volume façade outlets, occupied with a selection of popular retail brands, such as Charles & Keith, Coach & Furla, Gassan Watches, Michael Kors, The Cocoa Trees and TWG Tea Boutique.
T4 will also introduce a heritage zone, inspired by Peranakan shophouses. This zone will house familiar traditional brands Bee Cheng Hiang, Bengawan Solo, Curry Times, Eu Yan Sang and Heavenly Wang, with a heritage-themed interior design.
There will also be retail shops opening their first outlet in Changi Airport, which include footwear label PAZZION, world-renowned paper maker Moleskine, as well as British retailer WHSmith – which will be opening their first Singapore bookstore in the T4 transit area.
For dining, passengers and airport visitors will get a wide selection of local and international cuisines. In the transit area, new outlets include Tiger’s Den, serving bar food and light snacks, as well as Treasures (Yi Dian Xin) by Imperial Treasure, offering a wide range of dim sum options for passengers.
In the public area, airport visitors will be able to dine at 11 F&B outlets, including new-at-Changi restaurants such as local food chain Andes at Astons, London Fat Duck, Old Street Bak Kut Teh and Sushi Goshin by Akashi. Food Emporium by NTUC Foodfare.
There will also be a new tenant at Changi, which operate a food court with colonial-inspired design features, carrying a wide range of local favourites such as traditional chicken rice, “scissor-cut” curry rice, and Hakka style Yong Tau Foo.
Ms Lim Peck Hoon, Changi Airport Group’s Executive Vice-President of Commercial said, "T4 marks an exciting phase of 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 joining us at Changi Airport, to offer a larger shopping and dining selection for everyone," she added.
CAG then added that interior design works for the commercial spaces in T4 are in progress. The terminal will begin operations in the second half of this year.
The construction of the new Terminal 4, commenced in November 2013 and was completed on 16 December 2016, costing more than SGD$1.3 billion to build.
