Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Crystal Mover are the second generation of trains running on the Changi Airport Skytrain. Trains on either side of the skytrain features different colouring scheme despite building with the same specification.


Mitsubishi delivered 16 Crystal Mover vehicles to Singapore Changi Airport, ten of which are allocated to PMS/North and six to PMS/South. The Crystal Mover was also designed for flexible response to a variety of operations, from a one car operation to multiple coupled-car operations, depending upon the system requirements. [1]

To increase the system capacity of the Skytrain, six new train cars have been purchased which subsequently entered service in 2019 in conjunction with the upgrading of the Changi Airport Skytrain.[2]
