Terminal 4 of Changi Airport will officially commence operations on 31 October 2017 and the first airline to operate (currently operating from Terminal 1) from the newest addition to the world's best airport is Cathay Pacific. Apart from the 300-seat Japan-theme food court that is expected to become the airport's largest restaurant, travellers who are departing from Terminal 4 can also look forward to a spacious new signature lounge by Cathay Pacific.
Customer on Cathay Pacific's CX659 on 31 October 2017 will be the first official passengers to disembark at the brand new Terminal 4 and those departing on CX650 to Hong Kong slightly over an hour later will be the first to depart. Terminal 4 takes innovation to the next level by offering Cathay Pacific customers an integrated suite of self-service options, reducing queueing time and speeding up the process right through to boarding. Passengers will be able to check-in, drop off their bag, clear immigration and board using fully automated systems, thereby ensuring a seamless, stress-free passage and allowing them greater control over how they spend their time at the terminal.
The opening of Terminal 4 coincides with the unveiling of a dedicated Cathay Pacific lounge, one of the airline’s largest lounges outside Hong Kong, with seating for more than 200 customers. Similar in style to Cathay Pacific’s award-winning lounges at The Pier in Hong Kong, the new lounge provides a “living room” environment of understated luxury in which eligible passengers can relax, eat and work before their flight.
Designer furniture and lighting has been carefully selected for practicality, comfort and privacy, while the use of natural materials, plenty of greenery and artworks by local artists add to the lounge’s welcoming atmosphere. There is also a strong focus on food and beverage services, with the dining area featuring Cathay Pacific’s iconic Noodle Bar, offering a selection of freshly prepared Asian dishes including its signature Dan Dan Noodles and local favourite, Singapore Laksa.
