The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has awarded a site at Changi Airport for lease to L.C. Development Ltd for the development and management of an airport hotel.
The airport hotel will be a 9-storey building with up to 350 guest rooms. It will be equipped with amenities and facilities such as a swimming pool, restaurants, meeting and conference rooms, spa lounges as well as a health and fitness club. The airport hotel will be physically linked to the new Terminal 3. Hotel guests will also be able to reach Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 via an elevated People Mover System that will link all the three passenger terminals. In addition, there will be easy access from the hotel to the Changi Airport Mass Rapid Transit station, to facilitate guests heading to other parts of Singapore.
Mr Wong Woon Liong, Director-General of Civil Aviation said, "The new airport hotel will enhance the convenience of air travellers by offering them hotel accommodation they could check into shortly after clearing immigration and customs at Changi Airport. As a full-service hotel, it will offer a wide range of facilities and services that will cater to the different needs of our travellers. We are confident that the new airport hotel will complement the existing transit hotels at Terminals 1 and 2 to meet the popular demand for hotel accommodation at Changi Airport , especially for travellers with short layovers in Singapore."
L.C. Development Ltd has appointed the InterContinental Hotels Group to manage this airport hotel under its Crowne Plaza hotel brand.
