Where to Rest (Using Singapore Budget Terminal)
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi there

Cebu Pacific Airways arrives at Singapore Budget Terminal, which is in a separate building from the main terminals.

The transit hotels may only be used by passengers who arrive at one of the main terminals at Singapore Airport. Hence, you'd not be able to use the Transit Hotel.

There's a new hotel with the entrance at Terminal 3 - Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport. However, given that you're only resting for a few hours, this might not be the best way to spend the money.

I recommend that you take the free shuttle bus (24 hrs) to Terminal 2 and then the Skytrain (operating hours: 0500 - 0230) from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3. At Terminal 3, there's a passenger lounge facility called Plaza Premium Lounge. For S$30 per 5 hours, you get:

* comfortable sofas - just doze off here!
* free flow of hot and cold drinks
* salad bar and light snacks
* international newspapers and magazines
* shower facilities
* internet access
* free local calls

For a bit more ($30 per 3 hours), you could also use their napping facilities.


February 2010 Update:

Plaza Premium Lounge at Terminal 3 has stopped operations. Only the one in the restricted area of Terminal 2 is open.

Clearing Customs at Singapore Budget Terminal
by: Gabriel Tan

Oops! I forgot to add... Yes, you need to clear customs to get from the Budget Terminal to the main terminals.

querying validity of this idea

If this is in the transit lounge, then budget passengers can't use it anymore than they can use the transit lounge.

Terminal 3 Plaza Premium Lounge is Accessible from the Public Areas
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi there

unlike the lounges at Terminals 1 and 2, the Plaza Premium Lounge at Singapore Airport Terminal 3 is NOT in the transit area. It is accessible from the public area at Level 1. So you need not be a transit passenger to use it.

You may contact Terminal 3's Plaza Premium Lounge at +65 62416566 upon your arrival at Singapore Airport.

Plaza Premium Lounge at Terminal 3 has stopped operations. Only the one in the restricted area of Terminal 2 is open.

See Singapore city while in transit at the budget terminal
by: M. Miranda

I will be arriving singapure budget terminal on 17/10/2010 at 6.25 hrs by Tiger Airways and will be taking my next flight from Singapore to Perth at 15.50 hrs on the same day.

Will I be able to take a free trip and see Singapore while in transit at the budget terminal.

Hi Miranda

The free Singapore city tour is offered to those transiting at the main terminals only. If you are transiting through Singapore Budget Terminal, you could:

1) take the free shuttle to Terminal 2,

2) go to the Arrival Hall,

3) collect a DIY travel brochure from the Visitors' Centre,

3) and take the MRT from Airport Station to one of various spots in the city for a self-guided tour.

Getting back is the reverse trip on the MRT.

Have a good trip.
