It has been an eventful 18 months for Singapore Changi Airport. A key development – the corporatisation of the airport – took place on 1 July 2009, with the formation of Changi Airport Group (CAG) and the restructuring of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS).

Changi Airport's latest passenger handling facility, Terminal 3, opened in January 2008. Designed with spectacular architecture, lush natural light-filled ambience and superb efficiency, this ultra modern facility has an annual handling capacity of 22 million passengers, boosting the total handling capacity of Changi Airport to 70 million passengers per year. Currently, six airlines operate from Terminal 3, including the national carrier, Singapore Airlines which operates from both Terminal 2 and Terminal 3.
