As we reported back in July, Singapore Changi Airport will reopen its newest passenger facility Terminal 4 on 13th September, thanks to a resurgence in travel following a relaxation of border restrictions in Singapore and around the region.
Last week we had confirmation that the Blossom Lounge in the terminal would be reopening on the same date, accommodating Business Class passengers and status holders departing with full-service carriers like Vietnam Airlines, while also offering a Priority Pass or pay-per-use option for other travellers.
We now have further details of the initial T4 flights and reopening of selected retail outlets, while CAG and Jetstar remain locked in discussions about the carrier’s contentious move originally slated for late October.
Which airlines are moving to T4?
A total of 16 airlines will progressively move to Terminal 4 from 13th September onwards, as shown in the following table.

As you can see, practically all former T4 operators are making their way back to the terminal in September, with the addition of Bamboo Airways and HK Express, who started operating at Changi since T4’s temporary closure in May 2020.
The reopening will largely take the pressure off Terminal 1, which is becoming very busy during peak periods.
Terminal 4 will reopen with a limited selection of retail outlets initially, though the airport has promised this will increase over time, saying “more shops will be opening progressively in the coming months”.
Here’s the full list of openings planned from 13th September 2022.

The Blossom Lounge is back
As we revealed last week, the third-party Blossom Lounge in T4 will be reopening in tandem with T4’s relaunch on 13th September 2022.
The Blossom Lounge first opened along with T4 itself in October 2017, and offers a generous 1,100 sq m of floorspace, with seating capacity for 280 guests.
The lounge is located on the mezzanine level above the main departures concourse, after immigration and security, and we’ve got a review from our visit shortly after it first opened in late 2017.
