Strange that NH went to T1 while the rest of Star Alliance went to T3. Hmm.

With the sky train “T1-T2 (Transit) - In operation” and “ T2-T3 (Transit) - B-E line will be in operation”, I would expect the E piers in T2 are meant to be kept operationally ready for departures/arrivals when more planes are flying again. Maybe when more planes are flying, you’d check in at T3 but depart from gate E2 or E22 for example.

I'd be alright with MH staying in T1 permanently. Much better lounge options there (when everything's back to normal, at least).

Looks like T4 is also suspending operations. CX just announced that they are temporarily moving to T1.

At most I think it's just E22 onwards.

Getting to the finger piers from T1 can be a pain in the ass. Alternatively, they could seal off the access from the T2 end and operate it as a satellite terminal with a bus shuttle departing from T1.

Changi's website still showing these airlines as "TBC". With the recent announcement of T4 closure, no doubt plans will change.

The recent Air India repatriation flights to Singapore have been using T1.
