Can we all take a second to discuss this awesome boarding gate slide at Jewel Changi Airport!

 

Singapore (06 December 2020) – Not only does the Jewel Changi Airport have an epic waterfall, but it also has an inventive boarding gate slide that lets passengers travel in style to their flights… cause who likes walking to a plane anyway?

Jewel Changi Airport is a nature-themed entertainment and retail complex on the inside of Changi Airport, Singapore, linked to three of its passenger terminals. Its centrepiece is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, the Rain Vortex, which is surrounded by a terraced forest setting. Jewel includes gardens, attractions, a hotel, about 300 retail and dining outlets, and convenient early baggage check-in aviation facilities. It covers a total gross floor area of 135,700 m2, spanning 10 storeys – five above-ground and five basement levels.[6] Its attractions include the Shiseido Forest Valley, an indoor garden spanning five storeys, and the Canopy Park at the topmost level, featuring gardens and leisure facilities.

Jewel receives about 300,000 visitations a day. In October 2019, six months after its soft opening, it had welcomed 50 million visitors, exceeding its initial target for the whole year.

Yusuf El Askary was at Singapore Changi Airport in terminal 4 on the 8th of June 2020 when he decided to take the more scenic route to his flight. Scanning his pass, the 28-year-old pharmacist then takes a seat at the top of a slide which took him down to the floor below.

Yusuf said: “I had never seen anything like it at an airport. I couldn’t believe it was true until I actually tried it!
