Train service towards Changi Airport MRT station remains available, despite the closure and restriction of Jewel Changi Airport and Terminals 1 & 3 to public access, due to the detection and increase in occurrence of COVID-19 cases.


[Update – 11 Jun 2021] Safe and Progressive Reopening of Changi Airport PTBs and Jewel

Jewel & Passenger Terminal Buildings at Changi Airport, which have been closed to the public since 13 May 2021, will be progressively reopened, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) announced on Friday (Jun 11).

“The PTBs will remain closed to the public to allow the airport community to adapt to the new zoning measures, which require significant operational adjustments,” added CAAS and CAG.
