Changi Airport Group has announced that Jewel Changi Airport, a multi-dimensional tourist destination, will officially open on 17 April 2019.
Jewel will feature a distinctive dome-shaped façade made of glass and steel, while the concept for Jewel’s design represents the juxtaposition of a park and marketplace. This is exemplified in the four-storey Forest Valley and majestic 40-metre Rain Vortex features that take centre stage in the complex, surrounded by over 280 retail stores and restaurants.
When Jewel opens on 17 April, apart from a plethora of brands already announced, visitors can also look forward to the largest Nike store in Southeast Asia, Marks & Spencer, MUJI, ZARA, UNIQLO, Shaw Theatres with IMAX and FairPrice Finest with unique features such as exclusive products and specially curated sections and event areas. Five Spice, the food court operated by Food Junction, will also feature over 10 local brands, such as Faai Di by Ka-Soh and Fu Lin Yong Tofu, which have more than 20 years of culinary heritage.
Members of both Changi Rewards and CapitaStar loyalty programmes will be able to take advantage of Jewel’s Double Rewards programme. With Double Rewards, shoppers earn both Changi Rewards points and STAR$ with each transaction at Jewel.
Changi Airport T1 is integrated with Jewel via the Level 1 Arrival Hall, while T2 and T3 are linked to Jewel via air-conditioned pedestrian linkways. An Early Check-in Lounge, serving passengers of 26 airlines, and a left luggage service will be available for passengers. The Canopy Park and its attractions, situated at the top level of Jewel, will open in mid-2019.
Singapore residents will get a preview of Jewel before the public opening. To be held from 11 to 16 April, the preview will be a ticketed event, but free of charge. A total of about 500,000 tickets will be available.
Jewel was designed by a consortium comprising Safdie Architects, led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, as well as architects from RSP Architects Planners and Engineers, and Benoy.
