Singapore plans to double the passenger capacity of Changi Airport, its main airport, in the next 12-15 years, according to media reports quoting the city-state’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Lee was quoted as saying that a new Terminal 5 will be added to the Changi Airport in the next 12-15 years and it will be “actually a whole airport by itself, as big as today’s Changi Airport.”
The new terminal will also include a third and fourth runway and an indoor sky-garden.
Currently, construction of Changi Airport’s Terminal 4, scheduled to open in 2017, is underway.
Singapore Changi Airport handled 51.2 million passengers in 2012 and has a capacity of about 66 million passengers annually.
