What to Expect While Travelling
Your journey starts with navigating the airport. Changi Airport has stepped up precautionary measures and is exploring innovations to create a safer travel environment while still delivering an efficient and pleasant passenger experience. Here's what to expect:
- FAST check-in kiosks and bag-drop machines will be in high demand so please make sure to allow more time than usual if you are using this option. These machines will be fitted with proximity sensors so there is no need for passengers to touch the screens and can just point their finger close to make selections.
- Some airlines are asking their passengers to check-in for flights via airline apps.
- You will need to wear a mask at all times at Changi Airport and as much as possible on the plane.
- Auto-clearance immigration lanes are being upgraded with a new biometric system that uses face and iris recognition technology to replace traditional fingerprint-scanning.
- Sanitising stations will be positioned throughout many airports and next to touch points such as check-in kiosks and arrival desks.
- High contact areas such as baggage trolleys, lift buttons and counter tops will be cleaned and disinfected more frequently.
- All arriving, transit and departing passengers at many airports including Changi Airport will be subject to temperature screening.
- Hand sanitisers of not more than 100ml each will be allowed in cabin luggage.
