Singapore – Changi International Airport – Changi East – T5

Changi Airport Group (CAG) is part of the inter-agency committee developing Changi East, which encompasses the future Terminal 5 – set to be one of the largest airport terminals in the world.

Terminal 5 will be completed in mid-2020. Together with Terminals 1 to 4, Changi Airport will have the ability to handle 135 million passengers per annum.Changi East T5

Dubbed “Changi East”, a 1,080-hectare plot of land located east of the present Changi Airport will be the site of our next phase of development – Terminal 5 (T5). Here, a three-runway system will be implemented. The existing third runway, currently used by the military, will be extended to handle larger passenger aircraft.

Almost 40 km of new taxiways will connect the runway with the current airport. This coupled with new facilities such as navigation aids, airfield lighting systems and a fire station will further facilitate efficient aircraft movement.

Terminal 5 will be connected to Terminals 1 to 3 to allow the expanded Changi Airport to be operated as a single, integrated airport without compromising on the ease of transfer between different terminals, passenger convenience and airfield operational efficiency.

The terminal will also be connected to the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) network.

Delivery to the Point of Need

The A400M is the proven, certified and in operations Most Advanced Airlifter with 21st Century State-of-the-Art Technologies. The A400M can airlift in its large cargo hold most of the critical armed forces equipment which do not fit anymore in previous generation tactical airlifters such as an heavy helicopter or an heavy infantry fighting vehicle or an heavy humanitarian excavator. Thanks to its Combined Strategic and Tactical Capabilities, the A400M has proven better range / speed / altitude / payload / tactical performance than previous generation tactical airlifters enabling the delivery of Game-Changing Capabilities to the Point of Need that is to say next to a natural disaster or a theatre of operations where strategic airlifters cannot operate. The A400M enables cost-effective and rapid response to crises.

The A400M was launched in May 2003 to respond to the combined needs of seven European Nations regrouped within OCCAR (Belgium, France, Germany, Luxemburg, Spain, Turkey and the UK), with Malaysia joining in 2005. In 2009 the A400M made its first flight on 11 December 2009. The first production aircraft was delivered to the French Air Force in August 2013 and went into service a year later.
