Singapore Airport FDC

Singapore FDC
Name: Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3
Issue date: 2008 January 9th

The opening of Terminal 3 brings to fruition the three terminal masterplan for Singapore Changi Airport.

Poised to propel Changi Airport further ahead as a premier global air hub and the world's best airport, Terminal 3 is set to deliver unsurpassed quality of service, efficiency and safety, and promises a brand new experience for all travellers who pass through its gates.

This stamp issue is released to commemorate the start of flight operations at Terminal 3 on 9 January 2008. The four stamps incorporate elements that reflect Terminal 3's dynamic environment – the thoughtful integration of nature's wonders with state-of-the-art technology. All these come together to create a relaxing and refined ambience which embraces a myriad of enjoyable, comfortable and entertaining facilities that charm and revitalize travellers.

1st Local: Eco-friendly Engineering

The new terminal building is specially respectful of nature and responsive to environmental concerns. Wherever possible, the design architects opted for eco-friendly alternatives and innovative engineering.

Terminal 3's state-of-the-art roof comprises 919 skylights and reflector panels that infuse the building interior with an optimal amount of soft, natural daylight.

$0.65: All Ready for A380
Many infrastructural details were built into Terminal 3 to equip the new terminal for the super jumbo aircraft A380.

Dedicated A380 enhancements include enlarged gate holdrooms, extended baggage belt carousels and aerobridge gates each equipped with a third arm to facilitate boarding and disembarking of passengers from A380's upper and lower cabins.

$1.10: A Refreshing Environment That Breathes With Life
Terminal 3 is an eco-conscious architecture teeming with life, echoing Singapore's tropical Garden City theme.

Spanning 300 metres across the main building, Terminal 3's five-storey high vertical garden, called the "Green Wall" is covered with climbing plants and is interspersed with four cascading waterfalls. In addition, a sculptured sandstone art wall display located below the "Green Wall" offers an artistic treat for arriving passengers waiting for their baggage.

$2.00: Life + Style
Changi Airport has been a favourite among passengers around the world for its efficiency and attention to passenger comfort. Terminal 3 is all geared up to heighten that experience.

An expansive 25,000 square metres of space has been transformed into a dynamic retail and dining zone with more than 100 shops, over 40 F&B
outlets and over 20 service concessions.

Bright, open and airy, Terminal 3 offers the ideal lifestyle features and amenities to help sideline the stresses of modern travelling.

This is a special Cover/FDC. Could you find there are three A380 super aircrafts on this Cover? Yes, my friend made this Cover because of the Terminal 3 is ready for A380.
