With the opening of Jewel Changi nearing its due, a flurry of big international names such as the likes of American fast-food chain Shake Shack and the very first permanent Pokémon Centre outside of Japan will make their debut at the highly expected opening of the Singapore airport on the first half of 2019.
Another familiar favourite, fast-food chain A&W, whose last outlet in Singapore closed back in the early 2000s, will make a comeback as well. Jewel Changi is expected to have more retail and commercial space, as envisioned by co-developers Changi Airport Group and CapitaLand.
A&W, Shake Shack, Pokemon Centre to Open at Jewel Changi Airport
Other big names that will join the opening extravaganza at Jewel Changi are Swiss artisanal chocolatier Laderach; Singapore brand Collin’s halal western food restaurant El Fuego; sportswear giant Nike, which is gearing up to open its largest outlet in South-east Asia here to date; and finally, brewery Tiger Beer, which will be opening its first global flagship concept store Tiger Street Lab.
The Pokémon Centre at Jewel Changi is special on its own as it will be the very first permanent retail store of its kind outside of Japan. The store will put up merchandise available in Japan, as well as new exclusive items made for Jewel such as Pokémon trading cards and toy collectibles.
Fans of A&W can look forward to the brand’s signature favourites such as root beer floats, coney dogs and curly fries, with the addition of new offerings with the likes of the Japan-developed A&W cream cheese burger and Indonesia’s golden aroma chicken.
Meanwhile, Shake Shack is raring to exhibit its classic items such as the ShackBurger, Shack-cago Dog, milkshake and crinkle-cut fries, under the flagship of South Korean food-and-beverage firm, SPC Group.
Jewel is conveniently integrated with the airport’s Terminal 1 via the arrival hall, and connected to Terminals 2 and 3 through pedestrian bridges.
Moreover, there will be check-in facilities, a passenger lounge, as well as Goods and Tax Refund facilities. Travellers who are also looking for a place to stay can place a booking in any of of the 130 hotel rooms offered by Yotelair Changi Airport.
