Photographer's Note

Iíve just returned from my long trip from which Iíve brought some photographs. This is an image from place where my journey actually started, Singapore Changi Airport, Terminal 3 after midnight while waiting for connecting, AB 380, flight to Europe.

Terminal 3 became operational on 9th January 2008. The first test flight out of Terminal 3 was a Singapore Airlines flight from Singapore to Perth. The Terminal 3 has 28 aerobridge gates, with eight capable of handling the Airbus A380.

Like other new airports in the region, the Terminal 3 has a structure mainly made of glass, with big transparent spaces inside the terminal. However, unlike these newer airports, it incorporates "natural" features and "warm" tone extensively to balance the sterile feel of glass and steel. The roof has been designed to allow natural light to enter the building.

Terminal 3 is a shopaholicís paradise with two dedicated shopping zones.
