The island-city plans to begin operating its fifth terminal at Changi Airport, Asia's second-busiest worldwide aerodome, by 2030 to cater to growing travel demand, Senior Minister of State at the Ministry of Transport Lam Pin Min said in parliament yesterday.

Jewel Changi Airport, a multi-dimensional tourist destination, will open its doors to the world on April 17th.

The Jewel Changi complex, with its distinctive dome-shaped facade made of glass and steel, reportedly cost S$1.7 billion to build.

From Apr 11 to 16, the free preview will be open to Singapore residents.

By now, you would've heard all about the retail, dining, and entertainment concepts coming to town, including the likes of Shake Shack and A&W, as well as a Pokémon Center, Nike's largest outlet in Southeast Asia, and new-to-Singapore brands such as Xiao Bin Lou, Pink Fish, Tonito, and Läderach. Only 500,000 slots will be available and each person who registers on the company's website, Jewelpreview.com, will only be allowed to register up to four other companions.

According to Jewel Changi, the preview will be run daily in four three-hour time blocks, starting from 10am and ending at 10pm.

It was designed by a team of consultants from Safdie Architects as well as RSP and Benoy. The facility, called the Canopy Park, is located at the top floor of the Jewel Changi Airport. It will be opened to the public only in the middle of the year, CAG said, without giving a date.

In line with Singapore's "Garden City" theme, the airport boasts over 2,500 trees and 100,000 plant varieties.

Three iconic attractions - Sky Nets, Canopy Mazes and Discovery Slides - will take pride of place at the park, which is planned for a second phase opening in mid-2019.

This is among the aviation facilities that include integrated ticketing and baggage services for fly-cruise and fly-coach transfers, all of which will improve the travel experience of travellers, said Dr Lam when he announced its opening date on Thursday.

In the industry, Singapore's Changi Airport is widely accepted as the gold-standard in airports, regularly topping Best Airport lists year after year. It also has access to the T2 and T3 terminals via linkways and walkway escalators. It will be expanded and refreshed, with automated check-in kiosks, biometric-enabled bag drops and automated immigration gates, to offer passengers greater convenience from check-in to immigration to their flight, he said.
