SINGAPORE – All passenger terminals at Changi Airport will be closed to the public from Thursday (13 May) for two weeks.

Jewel will also be closed for the same duration – these premises will open on 27 May.

In a press release on Wednesday evening, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said that this is to facilitate mandatory COVID-19 testing for all affected staff. The special testing operation was started on 9 May.

This was after a growing cluster of cases was identified at the airport.

Open to travellers

CAG added that the airport remains open for air travel during this period.

"Passengers may also continue to be dropped off and picked up from the airport," it said. "Access to the passenger terminal buildings will be restricted to only passengers with air tickets and essential airport workers. Some essential services and food & beverage outlets will remain open to serve them."

There are now 25 COVID-19 cases linked to the Changi Airport cluster, including seven new infections announced by the Ministry of Health on Wednesday.
