Early check-in possible for Indonesia AirAsia at SIN T4?

On SIN website, it says QZ is eligible for early check-in from 5:30 to 22:00. However, AirAsia.com and support both said check-in only opens 3 hrs before departure.

Has anyone been to SIN T4 recently? Thanks a lot!

For Air Asia I usually check in online, since can check in as early as several weeks before. Unless you have luggage to check in

I have luggage this time unfortunately. It is very disappointing that Changi airport is wrong.

We flew AirAsia out of SIN T4 recently to Penang. Haven't gotten to a blog post about it yet, but we were checking bags so just turned up at the airport a couple hours before our flight. We used Premium Flex so checking in took all of 5 minutes even as the regular queue was quite long.

But we did review the excellent Priority Pass lounge in SIN T4: https://readyjetroam.com/2019/05/02/...rt-terminal-4/

TL;DR version: lots of seating, food and beverage (both soft and hard) options. A shower room and nap areas too. Access seems very limited to Hainan business class and Priority Pass. If you have access and spare time, definitely worth a stop.


ETA: finally got around to writing a review of the AirAsia flight SIN-PEN. We have really grown to love AirAsia Premium Flex for hopping around southeast Asia! https://readyjetroam.com/2019/05/10/...ore-to-penang/

Turned out, I was able to use to automated baggage drop 10 hours before my flight after all... I guess Air Asia really need to train their staff better.
I ended up spending some time at the Jewel and the lounge at T4.

On the way back, I was flying SQ in Y - I was so disappointed that SQ Gold lounge doesn't even have showers (or restroom for that matter!) I ended up going to another PP lounge. What a shame for SQ!
