Automated and funky: Singapore Changi Airport’s groundbreaking terminal

Singapore Changi Airport — already regularly voted the best airport in the world — is about to get even better.

The airport’s upcoming fourth terminal (T4) is promising passengers an improved travel experience with the innovative use of technology and an interior that embraces a boutique approach.

From a 70-meter-long LED screen keeping you occupied with beautiful visuals while you’re passing through passport control and security to colorful funky chairs that wouldn’t look out of place in a tech startup office, T4 is aiming to make transiting through the terminal surprisingly fun.

Amongst some of the “surprises” that passengers, particularly young ones, can look forward to when the terminal opens later this year are cute robot “housekeepers” roaming the lounge, dog-shaped chairs and a “heritage” zone featuring the architectural evolution of Singapore’s traditional shop houses (from the 1800s to the 1950s) as well as an opportunity to sample local food delights.

Question: Do you care about the airport experience when you travel? Do you remember the best airport you have been to? What about the worst?
