Travelers to Singapore will enjoy a unique mix of lush greenery and curated offerings upon arrival when Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) opens in April.
Developed by Changi Airport Group and CapitaLand, the latest multi-dimensional tourist destination brings a new dimension to the travel experience of visitors with its medley of lifestyle options.
As one of Singapore’s top visitors, Filipinos can soon expect another world-class facility catering to any lifestyle the next time they visit the Lion City. Changi statistics show that there were close to three million passenger movements between Singapore and the Philippines in 2018 – a 5.5 percent increase from 2017.
“Jewel’s unique mix of lush greenery and curated offerings are a first in the region, and we are excited to bring a new dimension to the travel experience of our visitors with its medley of lifestyle options,” Changi Airport Corporate and Marketing Communications Group Vice President Ivan Tan said.
Located at the heart of Changi Airport, Jewel is directly connected to Terminals 1, 2 and 3. The 10-storey lifestyle hub covers a total area of 137,000 square meters and offers aviation and travel-related facilities, and a wide range of retail offerings and unique play attractions.
Designed by a consortium of consultants led by Moshe Safdie of Safdie Architects, the concept for Jewel’s design represents a juxtaposition where a park and marketplace are situated side by side. This is exemplified in the lush four-storey Forest Valley and majestic 40-meter high Rain Vortex that takes centerstage in the complex.
Filipinos visiting Singapore can find a one-stop lifestyle destination, as the world-class complex houses 280 shops and eateries, including Southeast Asia’s first Shake Shack store. Filipinos transiting in the Lion City can also conveniently check in at YotelAir Singapore Changi Airport, Jewel’s own 130-room hotel.
“Filipinos, travelers and overseas workers alike, have always been valued customers of Changi. With the opening of Jewel, we look forward to giving an enhanced service and an even better travelling experience to Filipinos,” Tan concluded.
Changi Airport is the world’s seventh busiest airport for international traffic, managing a record 65.6 million passenger movements in 2018. It has 400 retail and service stores, as well as 140 F&B outlets.
With over 100 airlines providing connectivity to 400 cities worldwide, Changi Airport handles about 7,400 flights every week, or about one every 80 seconds.
