Singapore Changi Airport, named “World´s Best Airport” for five consecutive years, today unveiled plans to maintain its hold on that ranking with new attractions for its landmark Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel), located in the heart of the airport, the company said.
Changi Airport serves close to 60 million passengers from around the globe annually and is the world´s most awarded airport, being named as the World´s Best Airport by air travelers for the fifth consecutive year at the 2017 Skytrax World Airport Awards.
The newly unveiled elements of Canopy Park on level five of Jewel feature three iconic play attractions — Sky Nets, Canopy Mazes, and Discovery Slides. It will also have open play areas including Foggy Bowls, for children to wander through mists as though walking among clouds.
The play areas will allow visitors to bounce, roam and slide through Canopy Park, elevating the airport experience with a level of interactivity. They are designed by world-renowned consultants from Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore and the United States to integrate the beauty of nature and science.
The Jewel complex spans five stories above ground and five basement stories encased in a distinctive steel and glass faÃ§ade. The building was given the 2016 International Architecture Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, together with The European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and Metropolitan Arts Press, Ltd.
Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) is a joint venture between Changi Airport Group (CAG), manager of Singapore Changi Airport, and CapitaLand, through its wholly owned shopping mall business, CapitaLand Mall Asia. The Jewel complex is currently being constructed and is expected to open in early 2019. Located in front of Changi Airport´s Terminal 1, Jewel will be a world-class lifestyle destination in Singapore, enhancing Changi´s appeal as a premier air hub.
