Changi Airport to operate using Runway 1 and Runway 3  from October 2020

Changi Airport Group (CAG) announced today that Changi Airport will operate using Runway 1 and Runway 3 from 25 October 2020.

To ensure the safety of flight operations, Runway 2 will be closed temporarily for the next phase of infrastructure works for the Changi East project. These works are needed to complete Changi Airport’s fifth terminal, the Changi East Industrial Zone and supporting facilities by the early 2030s, and to operationalise a three-runway system by the mid-2020s.

A longer taxiing time can be expected for flights assigned to Runway 3. CAG will work closely with stakeholders including the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, airlines and ground handlers to ensure a smooth and safe transition of runway operations at Changi.
