As more nations relax their borders to welcome international travellers, traffic has started to return to Changi, as travellers put their holiday plans back into action again.
With limited travelling over the last two years, Changi Airport might seem like a familiar yet foreign place to many travellers. Changi Journeys shares five little aspects of the airport’s design which travellers might not have noticed immediately, and how these help to create the Changi Experience that the airport is known for.
1. Stop and smell the orchids
To enchant visitors the moment they step foot into Changi’s terminals, Changi Airport Group (CAG) created a characteristic Orchid Tea scent that was personalised to the airport, as studies have shown that smell is associated with memories. By infusing a refreshing scent at key touchpoints at the airport, CAG aims to leave travellers with positive lasting impressions of their travel experience in Singapore.
Developed in collaboration with a renowned scent specialist from an acclaimed fragrance supplier, the unique Changi Scent was designed to be subtle, yet identifiable. Inspired by the rejuvenating gardens of Changi Airport’s terminals, the scent is a careful concoction of orchid, damask rose, ylang-ylang, geranium, mint, citrus, South American yerba mate, white flowers and other Asian spices, for a unique twist.
