Summary: Passengers at Changi Airport will soon be able to board their flights faster, with the introduction of self-boarding gates. The gates allow passenger to only need to scan their boarding passes using barcode readers before they proceed to board their flights, there will be staff to provide assistance if needed. Boarding time will also be reduced, with the time saved departure can now be on-time. From April 2014, the gates will be progressively introduced in common gatehold rooms in all three terminals. Discussion with other airline has been made to take up this initiative. More self-service facilities will be a new feature in the new T4 when it open in 2017. the improvement are welcomed by the passengers.
Opinion: In my opinion, it is a good feature that Singapore had thought of as not only could it keep come with being modern and also solve the problem of lack of man power. Singaporean this day are only looking for job of a very high pay, such job at changi airport won't be a job that sigaporean would like to do so there will be a lack of man power as time goes.
