SINGAPORE – Changi Airport recently received its 500th Best Airport award and in celebration of this milestone, it is serving complimentary cups of artisan coffee to passengers and airport staff in the mornings of 24 and 25 November 2015. To thank both passengers and airport staff for their unwavering support over the years, 16 leaders from Changi Airport Group (CAG) and various airport agencies came together early this morning to serve up fresh coffee brews in Changi Airport’s three terminals.

“We are both honoured and humbled to have received our 500th Best Airport award. This is a significant event and a special gift to the nation too as we draw near to the close of our celebrations for SG50,” said Mr Lee Seow Hiang, CEO, CAG.

“This coffee giveaway is our small way, from CAG and all our partner agencies at the airport, of showing our appreciation to our passengers and members of the airport community who have supported us deeply over the last three decades.

The 500th award is an encouragement that will spur us to further innovate and demand from ourselves the highest level of service and the best possible travel experience for all our passengers.”


Dedicated coffee kiosks manned by skilled baristas have been set up at nine locations across the airport terminals in both the public and transit areas. Passengers and staff can look forward to either a stencilled latte or a plain brew from 6am to 11am on both days.

Aside from the coffee, all airport staff will also receive a complimentary Adidas backpack as a token of appreciation for their hard work and dedication in shaping Changi Airport into what it is today.
