SIN - T4 boarding pass to access T1-3?

Just wondering whether you can access T1-3 at SIN with a T4 boarding pass? Flying CX and was surprised last (and first) time to find that CX lounge in T4 has no showers! So may want to pop into QF or BA lounge in T1 before heading to T4 (I realise thatís another security clearance but in terms of time thatís a non-issue at SIN)

Should be ok. Singapore did rather famously jail someone for using a lounge when not flying but you should be safe. It is a hassle to get from T1 to T4, allow lots of time (even though security is fast).

Are you flying into T4?

It's somewhat hard to transfer between T1/2/3 and T4. It's a bus connection via T2 (Gate F51 IIRC). They have people at the transfer areas recording flight details on connecting boarding passes and giving out stickers saying which terminal you are going to.
If you are in T4 and don't have a boarding pass for a flight in the other terminals, it would be hard to get on to the bus

There is some discussion here about transfers from T4: Singapore Terminal 4 and lounge experiences

If you have Priority Pass you can access the Blossom Lounge in T4 that has showers.

To summarise:

- Had Electronic BP for CX flight (T4)
- tried to enter through immigration at T2
- Was told they couldn't scan electronic BP so go to T1
- Was told at T1 that I couldn't access because terminals were not connected (though they essentially are by airside bus between T2 and T4)
- Went back to T4 and went through immigration
- Got bus back to T2, no issues, just had to explain what I was doing and got a sticker (and had plenty of time so they weren't worried I'd miss flight)
- later got bus back to T4

Kind of ridiculous to be told you can't possible go into this area (T1/2/3), and then later to be walking through that very same area!

Its no different to arguing with security personnel. You cannot win even if you know you are right.
