Cathay Pacific will move out of Terminal 1 into Changi Airport's new Terminal 4 when it opens in 2017.

The Hong Kong-based carrier said this will provide customers with better service, including a dedicated lounge for premium passengers.

The new facility, being built where the Budget Terminal was previously located, will offer a whole suite of do-it-yourself options including self check-in and aircraft boarding, said the airline and Changi Airport Group in a joint media release on Wednesday.

Mr Wilson Yam, Cathay Pacific's South-east Asia general manager said: "As a keen adopter of technology aimed at improving passenger experience, self check-in options have always been offered by Cathay Pacific at all our stations. Changi Airport is one of Cathay Pacific's largest bases outside Hong Kong so we are very excited at this opportunity to offer a transformational on-ground product for our valued passengers."
