- As the coronavirus situation improves, Changi Airport unveils new transit areas.
- These transit areas will probably be used by transit travellers from select cities in Australia and new Zealand.
- They include amenities such as gaming stations, TV lounges and baby rooms, and will also be cleaned and sanitised on a regular basis.
As the coronavirus situation improves and Changi Airport readies itself for its gradual resumption of transit passenger services, new transit areas have been added! With plush seats set in wide open spaces to curb the coronavirus spread, these transit areas are set to make anyone passing through Changi feel right at home.
These transit areas are in Terminals 1 and 3, and will probably be mostly for travellers from selected cities in New Zealand (such as Auckland and Christchurch) and Australia (such as Melbourne and Sydney) as they wait for their flights.
These flights will travel anywhere within SIA’s group network operated by SIA, Scoot or SilkAir.
Some Cool Features of the New Transit Areas
Here are some features travellers can expect when using these new transit areas:
1. Lounge Chairs
Apart from the spaciousness of the transit areas and the soft sofas, these lounge chairs are another thing that add an element of comfort. They are the perfect thing for a world-weary traveller to nap in, and even overlook the runways so you’re able to watch the planes take off.
2. Entertainment Options
Bored travellers can also either watch TV at the TV lounge or indulge in some 8-bit fun at these retro gaming stations.
3. Internet Amenities
And of course, with the entire world going digital these days (especially in the time of COVID-19), there are spaces for surfing the Internet and for charging your laptops or phones. There’s also free wifi, which is definitely the most important part.
4. Baby Care Rooms
Parents with toddlers or babies can relax – the transit areas are fitted with baby care rooms! If a diaper needs changing, you at least know you’re covered.
5. Food Options
Hungry? Fret not. Travellers can either obtain food from the vending machines, or scan a QR code to have a meal delivered right into their laps. Pretty convenient, if you ask us.
While you can’t exactly take your time browsing the aisles of the duty-free shops anymore, more QR code scanning will buy you anything you want – just use the shopping service available. Of course, the duty-free prices still apply!
7. Cleaning Robots
Finally, to make sure all transit travellers stay safe and healthy, Changi Airport has scheduled regular cleanings of the transit rooms. It’s better to be safe than sorry, after all.
That’s all for now, folks. Remember to keep your mask on and stay safe!
