There are 360 retail stores and 130 F&B outlets across the airport’s four terminals.  Changi handled more than 46 million passenger movements in 2011.Changi Airport’s Terminal 1 (T1) has received a S$500 million makeover. The work, which started in May 2008 was completed in July.The terminal’s interior design and decor has been revamped to offer more convenience for passengers at the departure check-in hall, departure transit mall and arrival hall. About 22,000 sq m have also been added to the building, bringing the total floor space of T1 to about 308,000 sqm.

The larger floor area provides for more spatial comfort, better passenger flow, additional facilities and expanded retail and food and beverage offerings.
