The opening of T4 in late-October is highly-anticipated and will add a capacity of 16 million passengers per annum to Changi Airport, bringing the airport's total annual handling capacity to 82 million passenger movements. More than 200,000 Singaporeans had registered to tour the new terminal over two weeks in August, which showcased T4's innovations in enhancing operational efficiencies and productivity, in addition to the terminal's many unique features and booth displays by the nine airlines moving into T4, including Cebu Pacific.
"We are proud to be the first airline from the Philippines to operate from this world-class passenger terminal, enabling everyone traveling with CEB through Singapore to experience a new level of comfort and efficiency. We will bring with us a treasure trove of memories from our previous home in T2, and look forward to re-connecting with old friends – and making new ones," said Atty JR Mantaring, Vice President for Corporate Affairs of Cebu Pacific.
Cebu Pacific flies three times daily between Manila and Singapore; 12 times weekly to and from Cebu and Clark, Pampanga; twice a week from Davao and Iloilo.
