Changi Airport Group awards eight new concessions in public areas

CHANGI Airport Group (CAG) has awarded eight new concessions in the public areas of the airport since September this year.

Among the new food and beverage (F&B) outlets that have recently come onboard in T3 are Sushi Deli and Superfood Kitchen, a nutrition-focused takeout concept featuring "homemade protein and grain bowls and burritos at wallet-friendly prices", CAG said on Sunday (Nov 6).

Also in the same terminal, Vietnamese restaurant Nam Nam, a brand under the Les Amis umbrella, will start operations later this month. In basement 2 of T3, a new F&B outlet offering dual concepts of fusion Peranakan cuisine and artisanal ice-cream - Noyah La Maison & Zero Degree - will also begin operations by mid-December.

All shops in the public areas of Terminals 1 (T1) and 3 (T3) are now open.

Among the new concessions signed up at Terminal 4 is Japanese dining restaurant Aji Ichi, which is slated to start operations in January next year. This will add to the variety of F&B and retail outlets that have been operating in the terminal since it reopened on Sep 13.

CAG's general manager for landside concessions, Phau Hui Hoon, said: "Since the easing of Covid-19 measures in April, landside (or public area) sales at T1 and T3 have rebounded strongly in line with passenger traffic recovery. The majority of the F&B outlets are now performing at pre-pandemic levels. With the increase in footfall alongside the opening of the revamped Terminal 2 and Terminal 4, we have made use of the opportunity to refresh the tenant mix and provide visitors with a rejuvenated dining and shopping experience. The new leases also reflect the confidence that brands and retailers have in the recovery of the Changi air hub."

Several other new brands have also started operating in the revamped T2, where the southern wing of its departure hall reopened on Oct 11, following the resumption of arrival operations at the terminal in May this year.

They include PappaRich, a halal-certified restaurant that serves a wide variety of Malaysian staples and its own Hainan Bread featuring a 70-year-old recipe; and GO Noodle House, a casual eatery known for its fish bone broth and mi xian noodles.

A Monet-themed art installation recently opened in T2. A joint collaboration between CAG and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the walkthrough space celebrates some of Monet's most representative landscape works that he painted of his native France from the 1870s to the 1900s.

From Nov 20, live matches in the World Cup series will be screened in basement 2 of T3.
