Changi Airport has awarded all concession contracts for its new Terminal 4 (T4) building, confirming the retail, food and beverage, and service outlets that will make up the new terminal’s offerings.
Construction of the new terminal completed in December last year, with interior work now currently underway. T4 is set to fully open in the second-half of this year.
Among the most notable features will be an integrated duty-free zone in the transit area just after centralised immigration and security screening. The area will incorporate both of Changi’s duty-free categories – liquor and tobacco, and cosmetics and perfumes – in a single space.
Located just beyond the duty-free zone will be a selection of retail outlets with 11-metre-high facades. This retail cluster will include brands such as Coach, Furla, Michael Kors, and Gassan Watches. Meanwhile a separate local Peranakan-inspired heritage zone will offer traditional brands such as Bee Cheng Hiang, Bengawan Solo and Eu Yan Sang. British bookstore WHSmith will also be opening its first store in Singapore at the T4 transit area.
On the food and beverage front, bar food and light snacks can be had at Tiger’s Den in the transit area, while dim sum is available at Treasures (Yi Dian Xin) by Imperial Treasure. The public area, meanwhile, will have a further 11 outlets, with Andes at Astons, London Fat Duck, Old Street Bak Kut Teh and Sushi Goshin by Akashi all new additions at Changi Airport. Also making its debut at the airport is Food Emporium by NTUC Foodfare, which will provide a food-court style offering with traditional Singaporean cuisine.
“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,” said Lim Peck Hoon, executive vice president of commercial at Changi Airport Group. “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.”
Changi Airport’s T4 building will include more than 80 outlets covering over 16,000 sqm when it opens this year.
