STARTING April 17, 2019, Singapore-bound Filipinos will be welcomed by Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel), the latest multi-dimensional tourist destination developed by Changi Airport Group and CapitaLand.
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. Just last year, there were close to 3,000,000 passenger movements between Singapore and Philippines, a 5.5 percent increase from 2017.
Ivan Tan, Group senior vice president for Corporate & Marketing Communications of Changi Airport Group, said, “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.”
Located at the heart of Changi Airport, Jewel will be directly connected to Terminals 1, 2 and 3. The ten-story lifestyle hub will cover a total area of 137,000 square meters and will offer 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-story Forest Valley and majestic 40-meter high Rain Vortex that will take centerstage in the complex.
Filipinos visiting Singapore will be able to find a one-stop lifestyle destination, as the world-class complex will house 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, travellers 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 said. (PR)
