Singapore Changi International Airport

Singapore Changi Airport, formally known as Changi International Airport, was built on a reclaimed land as a replacement for the Paya Lebar Airport which was converted into a military airbase. Operated by the Changi Airport Group, the airport is said to be one of the largest development in the country with about 52 million square meters of landfill used for land reclamation.

It has received accolades from Skytrax, Airports Council International and Lonely Planet. The airport serves as the main hub for Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Tiger Airways and JetStar Airways. It serves more than 100 international airlines, connecting to more than 200 cities in 60 countries worldwide.
