The Changi Airport Group and Cathay Pacific Airways have jointly confirmed today that Cathay Pacific will operate out of Changi Airport Terminal 4 when it opens in 2017.
Cathay is the first airline to formally confirm its move to the state-of-the-art new T4, which will feature several integrated self-service options at key passenger touch points such as check-in, bag drop, immigration and boarding.
Changi is also promising faster processing via automated channels and greater autonomy over the time spent at the airport, as journeys at T4 will no longer be limited by the operating hours of manual check-in counters.
Cathay Pacific’s passengers will also be able to use a new and exclusive 800sq m premium lounge on the second mezzanine level of the new terminal.
Hong Kong’s flag carrier is among the top 10 largest airlines at Changi Airport in terms of passenger volume, with nine daily services to Hong Kong, including one via Bangkok, and four weekly services to Colombo, Sri Lanka.
CAG adds that with more than 130 weekly flights to and from Changi Airport, relocating to the new terminal will also provide Cathay Pacific with good room for future growth. Terminal 4 is designed to handle 16m passenger movements per annum and will be able to support quick aircraft turnaround operations for both full-service and low-cost carriers.
