Transferring between flights can sometimes be a complicated process, especially when you are connecting between two or more different airlines.

Have you ever wondered why you’re sometimes directed to clear immigration before checking in again, while there are times you’re allowed direct access to your next boarding gate without having to leave the transit areas?

Here’re three simple tips to ensure how you (and your baggage) will have a smooth transfer process, the next time you pass through Changi Airport!

For travellers without check-in bags

Transferring between flights can be easier when you’re travelling without check-in baggage. If you don’t receive a conventional boarding pass for the next leg of your journey at departure, do ask the check-in agents if your e-ticket/itinerary guarantees your transfer onto your onward flight!
