An extension of Changi Airport Singapore, Skytrax’s ‘Best Airport in the World’ for seven consecutive years, Jewel Changi Airport will feature the world’s tallest indoor waterfall as its centre masterpiece

Singapore’s Changi Airport extension, Jewel Changi Airport, will open its doors on April 17, 2019, offering travellers a vast array of options to dine, shop, play and stay.

The multi-use development, attached to Changi Airport’s Terminal 1 and within easy access from Terminals 2 and 3, is located before immigration and will be open to both travellers and non-travellers.

The neighbouring YOTELAIR Singapore Changi Airport provides 130 rooms for busy travellers in need of flexible check-in and check-out timings, while early check-in and storage availability, even for hand-carry luggage, will additionally be granted to passengers who experience late departures.

Functioning as more than an airport, Jewel will have several recreational features, with the unique mix of lush greenery and curated offerings a first in the region. The Forest Valley, a four-storey verdant landscape, will contain one of the largest collections of indoor plants in Singapore in its 22,000 square metre space. Equally as impressive is the Rain Vortex, a 40-metre tall, indoor waterfall that will showcase a nightly light and sound show. The 14,000 square metre Canopy Park will open soon after in June 2019 and allow visitors their choice of play attractions, gardens and walking trails. Canopy mazes, a bouncing net, a walking net, a 50 meter-long canopy bridge and discovery slides – a 4-slides-in-1 sculptural playground – are just some of the upcoming play attractions.

Jewel will also have over 280 shops and eateries including the Peruvian-inspired TONITO, which will serve classic ceviche and iconic Pisco Sour cocktails, and the locally-beloved Violet Oon, which will have its largest restaurant in the airport and offer popular delicacies such as dry laksa, beef rendang, satays and roti jala.

Several brands such as Shake Shack, Pokémon Center Singapore, Burger & Lobster, Läderach and Pink Fish will make their Singapore debut at Jewel, while respected and homegrown Singaporean brands such as Nalise and Supermama will have a presence. The nationally-recognised Tiger Beer will even be unveiling its first-in-the-world Tiger Street Lab and pouring seasonal brews exclusive to Jewel.

Jewel Changi Airport will open on 17th April.

Skytrax has recently announced that Singapore Changi Airport has been voted ‘World’s Best Airport’ for the 2019 Airport Awards by international air travellers for the seventh consecutive year, maintaining its position as the only airport to have received the accolade for seven years running.
