Changi Airport to allow transit from 2nd June

Changi Airport will allow paxes to transit from 2nd June onwards.

Whether SQ will increase their flight we wonít know yet. But guess they might further revised their flight timing so that paxes wonít stay long at the airport.

It'll probably lead to more SQ flights, especially in popular connecting routes like AUS-UK etc.
Trajectory is positive again, which I think is what matters

Do you suppose they will allow transit between two end-to-end tickets?

I think it's too early to tell. Until we have a better idea of the process that transit pax have to go through (and the restrictions that could come with it), it's hard to say for sure.

You're right... here's to hoping it's possible though

Well, at least as of a few months ago connections on separate tickets on LCCs out of T4 required a landside connection, aka entering the country. Even though there is an airside bus connection, you weren't allowed to take it unless it was on a single ticket with a participating carrier.

Very annoying.

So I would be careful with connections that include moving between T1/2/3 and T4

i would think they will allow same airline/ or same terminal transfer only. Right now only T1/T3 operating. SQ flights are all at T3. Donít think they would want transit pax to move from the far end of T3 to the far end of T1 to transfer.

To be fair, it has always been the case that you can't do airside connections between flights that involve LCCs, especially if it involves checked baggage. Yet, for a Terminal 4 connection between two AirAsia flights, I am quite sure one should be able to connect airside given that one does not have checked baggage and was able to retrieve a mobile/online boarding pass (assuming -- normal operations).

That's an interesting scenario, but since T3 and T1 are connected airside, and some T3 gates are virtually closer to T1, it'll be quite a ridiculous policy to limit/ban inter--terminal transfers. Although, that's not to say that Changi has never had any ridiculous policies.

T2 and T4 are closed, T2 will be bringing forward their renovation plans so will be closed for ~18mths. No word on what the strategy for T4 will be.

or maybe they can just use those gates B5-B10 n c1-c3 which is in between T1/T3.

They definitely want to restrict movement for those transit paxes in the terminals.

Yes, and not only that! T4 was ridiculous at connections, I had a mobile BP and couldnt use the transit and had to wait hours for 'transit' desk to open and get paper boarding pass!

Wonderful news! Now just praying that SQ adds back more flights and routes soon.

It'll probably lead to more SQ flights, especially in popular connecting routes like AUS-UK etc.
But only if Australia allows Brits to enter Australia and allow Australian citizens to leave Australia.
