Hung Jean, chief executive of Jewel Changi Airport, said: "The unique proposition of world-class shopping and dining, seamlessly integrated with lush greenery, fulfils the needs of increasingly discerning travellers for a meaningful and experiential journey, even for brief layovers". The 10-story structure is worth $1.7 billion and it was built to achieve Singapore's goal of securing the top position as the premier air hub in the world.

Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel), the airport's new complex, opened to the pre-registered customers Thursday.

In another development, Changi Airport's Terminal 1 has also been expanded to increase capacity by another 3 million passenger movements per year. Visitors seeking more action can take a leap on the bouncing net and discover the 8-metre high lookout point that features an aerial view of the entire Canopy Park.

Ltd, said it cost 1.7 billion Singapore dollars (1.26 billion US dollars) to build Jewel in four years, and they expected it would attract 50 million visitors annually. These are linked by travellators that are equipped with facilities where travelers can store their luggage 24/7.

Mr. Shukor Yusof, an aviation analyst at Endau Analytics told The Straits Times, "Jewel is an extension of Changi's constant move to stay relevant and profitable".

Airport facilities have also been added in Jewel.

The highlight of the complex is a 40-metre indoor waterfall cascading through a steel and glass dome.

Jewel also provides attractive scenery for visitors.
