HONG KONG, JULY 18, 2018 – National Geographic and Singapore’s Changi Airport Group (CAG) proudly announce a new partnership dedicated to sharing the story of Singapore. Kicking off the partnership, National Geographic is going deep inside Changi Airport’s Terminal 4 to explore the innovative design and technology solutions which are making the airport of tomorrow a reality for passengers today. Produced by National Geographic in partnership with CAG, Inside T4: Terminal of Tomorrow premieres on Thursday, July 19, 2018.
Singapore Changi Airport has been named the World’s Best Airport for six consecutive years. Inside T4: Terminal of Tomorrow goes behind the scenes to meet the team responsible for conceptualizing Changi Airport’s new terminal and bringing it to life. With dramatic obstacles and thrilling achievements, National Geographic stays close to the T4 team as they tackle airport efficiency and security challenges, introduce cutting-edge facial recognition technology, install 12-meter-tall indoor trees and the world’s largest kinetic sculpture, and ultimately deliver groundbreaking design and technology solutions set to change the air travel game in Asia and across the globe.
In 2017, 62 million passengers came through the gates of Singapore’s Changi Airport. By 2030, it plans to bring its capacity to more 150 million passengers. The first step to this expansion is the opening of its new terminal – T4. But while grappling with soaring passenger numbers is essential, Changi Airport has a reputation to uphold as an award-winning airport with the best experience in the world. Through Inside T4: Terminal of Tomorrow, viewers can join in the drama as designers and technical experts devise how to keep Changi ahead and raise the bar even further.
