The Force Awakens @ Singapore Changi Airport

[Media Invite]

Look no further Star Wars fans ! Even the tiger-mum myself decided to allow my avid Star Wars fan to skip school today because for the first time, Changi Airport is bringing a part of the galaxy far, far away to fans, travellers and visitors alike, with the landing of the film series' iconic star fighters landing in Singapore, to kick start their annual year-end festive celebrations.

R2- D2
From 12 November 2015 - 5 January 2016, a life-sized X-Wing fighter takes centre stage at Terminal 3 (T3) , Departure Hall.

Photo opportunity : It's an ultimate opportunity to don on the Star Wars costumes and take the hot seat behind the controls in the cockpit of X-Wing and visitors get to bring home a printed copy of the photograph for FREE.

Simply just go and redeem a ticket ! Tickets to board the X-Wing Fighter will be given on a first come, first served basis. There are 80 tickets given out for each time slot on a daily basis :

- 10 am - 12 pm
- 1 pm - 3 pm
- 4 pm - 6 pm (except for weekend)
- 7 pm - 9 pm
Vera and me dressed up as Chewbacca, looked a little oversized for her but I'm so glad that she did not made a big fuss out of it while Xav dressed up as Captain Phasma.

Just right in front of T3 Departure Hall, fans will be thrilled to find a showcase of models of the Millennium Falcon and Star Destroyer.

Stations where visitors can select and listen to war phrases in 10 different, commonly spoken languages.

The bonus for this morning, we got to storm along side with the Stormtroopers from T3 to T2 !! It's exactly just like chasing after idols for the first time with my kids ! Totally overjoyed !!

I was indeed amazed by the children who could answer all the Star Wars related questions when asked ! Even Xav was so confident that he bravely raised his hands, enthusiastically wanted to take part in the Q&A on the spot, when the question was not even being asked ! This mama here was hoping that he could do the same too when comes to his school work with all the answers right in his head! He was so happy to win himself a gift when he got it right.

He was asked "What is the weapon that Jedi used?" Answer by Xav : "LIGHT SABER"

TIE Fighter , another signature star fighter at Terminal 2 (T2) Departure Hall ( right infront of Krispy Crème, guarded by 5 Stormtroopers in the latest incarnation of their armour is a sight to behold !

I am looking forward for my month end trip to catch a glimpse of a Star Wars themed hold room and aerobridge at Gate E26 ! Travellers will be welcomed by life-sized figurines of the First Order Stormtroopers and the astromech droid R2-D2 which most of us love !

Special Appearance featuring X-Wing fighter pilots and Imperial Stormtroopers to complete the X-Wing fighter experience, every Saturday 4pm from 14 November 2015 to 2 January 2016 (except 19 December). Star Wars fans, don't forget your cameras as these characters make their special appearance !
