In Transit in Singapore Changi Airport

Singapore Changi Airport is one of the best and busiest aviation hub in the world. Since its opening it sets benchmarks in service excellence. Just in 2009 alone, it has received 27 "best" awards. This airport has many facilities and is one of the best airport for in transit services.

Many people fly to this airport just to connect to another flight. Some wait only few hours but many waits for longer. Luckily, the airport offers a lot of services to help transit passengers to refresh and fill their waiting time with fun. All these services are behind the immigration check point so you do not need to pass through immigration.

For example if you have time, you can take a quick shower in one of the transit lounges of Terminal 1, Terminal 2 or Terminal 3. If you need to wait 3 to 4 hours, you can even play FREE Xbox 360 and PlayStation® 3 games at the Entertainment Deck. If you need to wait more than 4 hours you can swim in Changi's roof top swimming pool (14 SGD if you are not staying in the transit hotel) or catch a movie in the  free movie theater.

If you are transferring and the transfer time is more than 5 hours, you can take a 2 hours free Singapore tour. But these tours requires you to clear the customs and your ability to take one depends on your visa requirements to enter Singapore. Or you can simply chose to take a nap during this time. All 3 terminals of Changi Airport offers resting areas or Changi Transit Hotel.

But you should note that if you arrive to Budget Terminal, this terminal's transit area does not have access to main 3 terminals and their in transit services. Not all budget airliners use budget terminals so if you need transit facilities, check the airliners termnial in Changi Airport.
