Singapore Changi airport is considered the best.
Five years in a row, Singapore’s Changi airport is indeed becoming the best airport in the world. There is something: everything is done to ensure that passengers were comfortable, there is even a butterfly garden and a Spa centre. And here’s the best airport opened a new terminal.
The area of the new terminal 4 is 225 000 square meters, and ceiling height is 25 meters.
Kinetic ceiling sculpture Petalclouds rotates. Looks fascinating. Such sculptures in terminal six.
The basic design of the terminal is inspired by the Orchid, the national flower in Singapore: Orchid petals everywhere — from carpets to ceilings.
As in other Changi terminals, the emphasis is on greenery: it is growing 186 large trees and green walls.
At the airport, great attention is paid to the traditional culture of the Peranakan with a modern twist.
But the main attraction of the airport is its emphasis on technology. Sounds like science fiction, but here everything is automated, so the queues at the big passenger flow should not be. Yes, and the passenger will be able to choose which procedure he will undergo the first. Passengers can use the self-service machines. First, they are recorded in an automated kiosk, which is issued a boarding pass and tag the Luggage.
Then they headed to the baggage drop-off point, which uses face detection technology to make sure that it’s actually the same passenger. The last step is the automated rack of migration control. But if you want to use automatic mode, you will need to register upon arrival and be fingerprinted.
Technology is everywhere: scurrying through the halls of the robotic cleaners are equipped with cameras.
The terminal, which was previously used as a spare, it took three years for the reconstruction and repair. It is expected that passenger traffic will account for 16 million people working here are 9 airlines. Changi airport is the sixth busiest airport in the world. He served a record 58.7 per million passengers from all over the world in 2016.
Even more anticipated terminal 5 planned to open in 2020.
