Nostalgic fans of Singapore Changi Airport’s history will be sad to learn that the two giant flip board flight information displays in the Terminal 2 check-in hall will not be incorporated in the facility’s revamp, with the first of them coming down in February 2020 as part of the renovation work.

These two flip board displays, also known as split-flap displays or ‘Solari boards’ after Italian display manufacturer Solari di Udine, are the only two remaining at Changi Airport and have been a feature of the Terminal 2 check-in hall since 1999.
