Hi drsanjayasethi,

Only if you are flying with SQ or Silkair as they allow early check in up to 48 hours before flight departure.

As Nancy said, only those couple of airlines allowing you to do very early checking will let you do this.

Air Asia check in opens only a few hours before each flight so you will be unable to obtain a validated boarding pass which is needed to get airside.

Hi again drsanjayasethi,

Regrettably no. In fact AirAsia check in counter only opens 2 hours and closes 45 minutes before scheduled flight.

That means, we cannot enter the airside, but we can do the shopping and dining on the land side, Is n't it? Also I would like to know whether there are lounges or rest rooms on the landside for overnight stay?

====> Correct.

Also I would like to know whether there are lounges or rest rooms on the landside for overnight stay?

===> There are the Following Hotel:

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel (Connected to Terminal 3 & can be Access from Terminal 1 & 2.

===> There is the Capri by Fraser Changi City - 1 MRT Stop away from Changi Airport Station @ Opposite Expo Station

===> And the Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore that provide Free shuttle to Airport.

grandmercureroxy.com.sg/explore/services/

The Only free rest area would be the Departure viewing Mall......

If U really calculate, staying in a Budget Hotel in the City & Take MRT or Taxi to Airport 3hr before Ur Flight departure is still cheaper.

Good Luck

There is little in the way of shopping landside and there are no lounges or dedicated rest areas either ( just regular seats). Only fast food places open through the night landside.
