The giant pandas have landed.
Pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia arrived from China to much fanfare on Thursday morning before over 60 guests which included Mr Teo Ser Luck, Minister of State (Trade & Industry), chairman of Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) Claire Chiang, and former President S.R. Nathan, chairman of CapitaLand Hope Foundation.
The pandas which were on board a chartered Singapore Airlines flight touched down at the Jet Quay CIP Terminal of the Changi Airport just after 8.20am.
About 30 minutes later, before the guests - which included government officials from MTI and corporate sponsors CapitaLand - two crates were lowered from the plane, and opened to unveil Kai Kai and Jia Jia.
