Changi Airport Group (CAG) said it conducted its full dress rehearsal for Terminal 4 as it prepared to commence operations at the terminal on October 31.
The rehearsal - which involved 1,500 airport staff, tenants and participants - included final systems checks and tests by airlines, commercial tenants, ground handling companies and other airport stakeholders.
To ensure that staff working in the terminal are familiar with fire safety measures, eight fire drills involving over 7,800 participants have been conducted at the terminal, CAG said in a statement.
CAG has also tested all fire systems as part of its preparations for T4's opening.
The airlines – Cathay Pacific, Cebu Pacific, Korean Air, Spring Airlines, Vietnam Airlines, and four others from the AirAsia Group – will progressively shift their operations to T4 over the course of one week, beginning on October 31.
To test the emergency preparedness of the new terminal, a fire evacuation exercise involving the Airport Emergency Service (AES) was also carried out. The drill simulated a fire breaking out at the terminal's immigration hall.
About 1,000 people, comprising most of those present at the rehearsal, as well as commercial tenants, took part in the drill.
