Singapore has resumed work on Changi Airport’s Terminal 5 after the project was halted two years ago as the Covid-19 pandemic wiped out travel.

The government will begin to re-mobilize design and engineering consultants to refine the construction of the terminal, Transport Minister S. Iswaran said at the Changi Aviation Summit in the city-state on Tuesday. Actual building works are expected to commence in about two to three years, he said.

Air travel is showing signs of a robust recovery in Asia as countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea allow fully-vaccinated people to enter without quarantine. To meet demand, airlines and airports in the region are increasing capacity and hiring more workers.
