The Experience Creation team at the Marui Pod (Terminal 3)
Delfine Ong, Associate General Manager, Experience Creation, shared, “Celebrating the year-end festivities has been a mainstay at Changi. It’s been two years since we’ve had a centrepiece at Terminal 3 (due to Covid), and we are excited to bring it back this year. The first Avatar movie was launched in 2009, and with its sequel premiering in December 2022, we wanted to launch a ‘comeback’ together with one of the most celebrated films of all time, capturing the excitement of a new movie release together with the celebratory mood of the festive season.
“This is the largest festive structure ever built in Terminal 3, at 15 metres wide and seven metres tall. Located just in front of departure immigration, passengers will be awed by it and feel that their holiday has already started even before they fly off. Changi Airport is the only place in Asia that hosts this life size replica of the Navi house, providing a once in a lifetime opportunity for visitors.
“Every year-end, we challenge ourselves and ask – what’s next? What else can we do? With each passing year the installations get bigger, more elaborate, with added complexity. At this rate, Changi can be transformed into anything – who knows, one day we could be taking a roller coaster to board our planes!”
