With more than 400 accolades under its belt, Changi Airport has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1981, when Terminal 1 first opened.
For the past 30 years, Changi Airport Group has established Changi Airport as the world’s most awarded “Best Airport”. In a short span of seven years since Changi's opening, Terminal 1 received its first recognition as the world's best airport from Business Traveller (UK) in 1988. Two years later, Terminal 2 was unveiled to cope with Terminal 1's overwhelming success. Constantly integrating itself to the ever-changing aviation landscape, Budget Terminal was opened in 2006 providing a no-frills Changi Experience aimed at passengers of low cost carriers. More recently, the state-of-the art Terminal 3 opened in 2008.
