Changi International Airport - The Unofficial Airports Guide

Singapore Airport Departures

Leaving Singapore through Changi is quite easy. The hardest part may be showing up at the right terminal, although most taxi drivers know which airlines fly from which terminals. The main problem is Singapore Airlines, which uses both Terminal 2 and 3. The rule of thumb seems to be: short-haul flights to Southeast Asian destinations use Terminal 2, while long haul flights go out of Terminal 3. The displays throughout the airport show departures by terminal, so it can be easy enough to find the right one once you're inside, and automated shuttles take you quickly between all the terminals.

The table below shows the terminals used by various airlines. If your airline is not listed in the table, then it uses Terminal 1.
