Changi Airport (CG2) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line.

History

Date Event
8 February 2002 Station officially opens

Train services were initially operated as a through service from Boon Lay station when this station opened. However, to cut costs due to low ridership, it was reverted into shuttle service on 22 July 2003.

Station Planning

The earlier plans had long been made for a new line branching off from the existing East West Line at Tanah Merah station with some conceptual plans showing a tentative route alignment up to the airport and continuing towards the city along the east coast of the island. When the extension to the airport was finally announced, however, the route alignment showed a deviation from previous plans.

The final plan involved building only the first two stations, namely Expo and Changi Airport. The alignment of the station at the airport has been switched perpendicularly to an east–west direction, such that the station leads to two of the terminals directly from either end of the station.
