T4 airline operations

Since T4's temporary shutdown in May 2020, Bamboo Airways and HK Express began operating at Changi, becoming new additions to the list of former T4 operators that are all returning to the terminal!? T4’s reopening will help ease the pressure off of T1, which is known to be very busy during the peak travel period. While not much information is known at the time of writing, there are some familiar halal eateries that you’ll recognise among the bunch!

1. Andes by Aston

This halal-certified Western eatery is also open at T4’s Departure Hall! After a long flight (or even perhaps for a post-flight meal), you’ll want to indulge in hearty and flavourful dishes. ? It’s great for a pick-me-up especially if you’re someone who gets hangry really easily when travelling! Not to mention, the airport vibes are just amazing when you’re dining out regardless of if you’re alone or with company. ?The outlet also closes pretty late (11PM) so you can definitely get some grub in time to catch that midnight flight!
