TRAVELLERS and visitors can now enjoy late night shopping and dining at Changi Airport's new Terminal 3.
Some 60 shops and food and beverage outlets spread over 8,600 sq m of space in the public area were officially opened for business on Monday.
This is the largest dedicated retail and F&B space among the three terminals at the airport.
Shopping and dining outlets are located at two dedicated areas - 'B2 Mall @ T3' on Basement 2 and '3-Top' on Levels 3 and 4.
Visitors can also enjoy late night shopping and dining every night as the retail outlets are open till 11pm daily, while some dining outlets are open 24-hours.
At the launch of the shopping and dining space on Monday, Mr Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), said: 'Though an airport is primarily for travellers, many Singaporeans, especially those living in the eastern part of the island, visit the airport to dine and relax on weekends.'
'We hope these visitors will continue to enjoy shopping and dining at Changi Airport, in particular, the unique retail and F&B experience at Terminal 3's public area.'
In conjunction with the launch, a shopping promotion will run exclusively in the public areas of T3 from Apirl 1 to 30.
During this promotion, 30 people will win an all-expenses paid trip to Beijing to watch the upcoming Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Shoppers just need to charge a minimum of $30 in a single receipt to Visa or spend a minimum of $60 in cash.
T3 is a seven-storey 380,000 sq m building with three basement and four above ground levels. It adds a capacity of 22 million passengers a year to Changi Airport, bringing the airport's total annual capability to about 70 million passengers.
Changi Airport's total retail and F&B space amounts to 48,000 sq m with about 230 retail and over 110 F&B outlets.
