Photo Essays: Checking Out

Passengers check in, but the terminal is checking out. 

After six short years of being an affordable gateway to nearby get-aways, the Budget Terminal is being demolished to make way for a new and bigger Terminal 4, ready by 2017.

The last plane - Cebu Pacific Flight 5J804 to Manila - took off on the night of Sept 24, while Tiger Airways’ TR2727 from Manila landed the next morning, with over 100 passengers greeted by their tiger mascot. Future budget flights will operate from Terminal 2.
