Cathay first to confirm operating at Changi T4

Changi Airport’s newest terminal due to open in 2017

Cathay Pacific Airways has announced that it will operate at Changi Airport’s newest terminal, Terminal 4, when it opens in 2017. It is the first airline to confirm its move to T4.

Hong Kong’s flag carrier is one of the Singapore airport’s first airline partners, having operated at Terminal 1 since the airport opened in 1981. Its presence has grown over the years and today it operates nine daily services to Hong Kong including one via Bangkok, and four weekly flights to Colombo, Sri Lanka.

With around 130 weekly flights to and from Changi, relocating to the new terminal will also give Cathay Pacific room for future growth. T4 is designed to handle 16 million passenger movements a year and support quick aircraft turnaround operations for both full-service and low-cost carriers.

T4 will feature a total of 21 contact stands – 17 for narrow-body and four for wide-body aircraft, the latter of which can be converted to accommodate eight narrow-body aircraft if the need arises. These stands will come with aerobridges for passengers.
