[SINGAPORE] Travellers passing through Changi International Airport here rarely have to wait long for bags or boarding. Unlike many other airports in this fast-growing region, Singapore's airport can handle far more than the 53 million travellers that embarked and departed there in 2013.

And even if they are delayed, the airport environment is relaxed, efficient and, with such over-the-top amenities as a free movie theatre, a butterfly garden and children's play areas, even fun.

Despite all this, Singapore has big plans to expand the airport still further.
