Singapore Changi Airport is made up of terminals. Terminal 1, the main
terminal, started operating 29 December 1981 and handles the main flow
of passengers that arrive, depart or transfer, in and out of Singapore.
Terminal 2, which only serves Singapore’s national airlines, Singapore
Airlines (SIA) and Silkair (a subsidiary of SIA), was officially opened
on 1 June 1991. Currently, the Budget Terminal, which handles the flow
of passengers that take budget terminals, had started operations.
Singapore Changi Airport covers a large area of 1,300 hectares. It is
situated at the top-eastern part of Singapore, about 20 kilometres away
from the city center, hence minimizing noise pollution, as the flight
paths of the planes will be mainly over the sea. Larger than half of
the airport’s land area is built on reclaimed land.
