    This is the most recent construction image I can find from an article in May 2022 but I am not 100% sure if that's a very recent image.

  4. Following a two-year pause due to “pandemic-fuelled uncertainties”, plans are back underway for the development for a mammoth fifth terminal which it hopes will serve 50 million passengers alone upon completion.

    Construction of T5 is primed to begin in the next two years with a view to opening the shiny new hub around the mid-2030s. A real show of strength as the country continues to adapt to the impacts caused by COVID-19, it will also allay fears for anyone who believed that the expansion had been shelved indefinitely.
    Set on a 1,080ha site as part of the Changi East project, T5 will not only deliver three extra runways and tunnelling systems to the precincts but also provide the airport with over 100 additional departure gates. This will go some way to deal with an expected 135 million passengers annually by 2030 — by comparison, in 2019 the airport had a footfall of 68 million passengers.
    There are numerous reasons to be excited about the prospect of what could be on offer. Considering the Changi is already home to the world’s largest slide in an airport and the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, who knows what could feature here? We imagine the world’s biggest duty-free Toberlone bar just won’t cut it.

    The relaunch of the Terminal 5 build should be music to the ears of millions of business travellers, too, what with Singapore continuing to vie with China as one of the world’s leading financial hubs, as this recent study shows. Those who’ve flown through Changi will know just what a sleek colossus it is. Even without T5, it’s already one of the best airports on earth and soon enough it’s going to get even better. 2035 might sound like a lifetime away, but let’s not forget London Heathrow (LHR) T5 took the better part of a decade to complete after beginning in 2002.

  5. Judging from how beautifully-themed and cozy the existing Changi terminals and the newly-added Jewel are, this new monster of an airport might well turn into the world's most sought after transit 'destination'!



  6. Singapore has announced plans to resume work on a fifth terminal at Changi airport.

    The 50-million capacity Terminal 5 had been placed on hold in June 2020, following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent downturn in demand for air travel.

    But speaking at the Changi Aviation Summit this week, Singapore’s Transport Minister S Iswaran said that “Given the current and projected recovery in air travel demand, we have a renewed impetus to secure our infrastructural capacity for growth”.

    “We have taken the opportunity of the two-year hiatus to comprehensively review the T5 design to make it more modular and flexible, and enhance its resilience and sustainability,” said Iswaran.

    Construction work is now expected to commence in two or three years time, with a completion date of the middle of the next decade.
