Schindler wins contract for new terminal at Singapore’s Changi Airport

Terminal 4 (T4) will be a major addition to the award winning airport 

The new terminal will add almost 20% to Changi Airport’s annual capacity, bringing it from 66 to 82 million passengers. Schindler will be supplying the mobility solutions by equipping the terminal with 58 elevators, escalators, and moving walks, including 23 of the newly launched Schindler 5500 elevators.

A welcome oasis for travelers

T4’s simple and functional design was inspired by an orchid petal, and visitors will be treated to refreshing views of lush greenery and natural sunlight. The heart of the terminal will feature a 300-meter-long Central Galleria, separating the public zone from the restricted zone. Built on the site of the former Budget Terminal, the new terminal will cover a total of 195,000 m2 and include a new 68-meter ramp tower.
