To say that Jewel Changi Airport’s public preview opened to moderate fanfare would be a huge understatement. To put it crudely…

It was probably the reason why Thanos felt the need to snap his fingers in the first place.

Indeed, despite it only being the public preview period (exclusive to Singapore residents), the newly opened airport has already seen its fair share of crowds, with snaking queues that threatened to spill over to Jurong.

Well, I gotta say; that’s probably an introvert’s worst nightmare.

“But wait, if there are so many people there…” my colleague uttered with a horrified expression on his face. “How packed would the return journey be?”

In response, I looked at him.

“May Gawd bless their sardine souls.”

But wait… it seems that you do not need to be a sardine

For apparently, your return journey doesn’t depend solely on the train;

There’re shuttle buses that manoeuvre out of the newly-opened airport as well!

They’ll be stationed at the premises from now till 21 April.

And there’s public transport too

Should you be unaware, there’re actually public buses that take you there as well.
