Passengers with a layover of 5.5 hours or more at Singapore’s Changi Airport can enjoy a free 2-hour bicycle ride to explore nearby outdoor attractions in the airport vicinity.
The free bicycle ride service at Changi Airport will be available for a year, introduced as part of Singaporean authorities’ initiative to enhance the experience of air travelers, as stated on the airport’s website.
To qualify for the service, passengers must possess a valid Singapore entry visa and pass through immigration clearance.
Passengers can use the bicycles to explore nearby attractions like Bedok Jetty, a known fishing spot, the East Coast Lagoon Hawker Center, and neighboring residential areas like Bedok and Siglap.
At the bicycle return area, pay-per-use shower facilities, an outdoor café, and a bar are provided, giving passengers the opportunity to freshen up and relax.
Changi Airport in Singapore is renowned for its attractions like the butterfly garden, movie theater, and swimming pool. It earned the title of the world’s best airport by Skytrax in March.
Additionally, last April, the airport reinstated free city tours for transit passengers with layovers of at least 5.5 hours but less than 24 hours after a three-year break from the service.
Pre-pandemic, Singapore’s Changi Airport ranked as the world’s seventh busiest in international passenger traffic, handling a record-breaking 68.3 million passenger movements in 2019.
