Star Wars has landed at Singapore Changi Airport! Check out the cool starfighters and characters from the world of Star Wars here!

From now till 5 January 2016, enjoy Star Wars-themed experiences at Changi Airport, with exhibits, character appearances and cute plush toys exclusive to the airport! This is part of the airport’s year-end festivities, and of course, to celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Singapore next month.

Star Wars at Changi - T-70 X-Wing Starfighter 2 at Terminal 3

Making its landing at Terminal 3 central atrium, the T-70 X-Wing is flanked with an awesome video wall! Check it out at Terminal 3’s central atrium area (between Check-in Rows 5 and 6). Here are some detail shots of the Starfighter:

R2-D2’s here too, although many Star Wars fans have already pointed out that it’s the wrong astromech droid.

A short performance, or ‘character parade’ gave a finishing touch to the launch of Star Wars at Changi.

Star Wars at Changi - Stormtroopers invading

It was a confusing show, but still quite entertaining for all to see so many costumed characters. The Stormtroopers arrive (to capture the X-Wing?) and after a while everyone just decided to pose for photos.

Feels like you’re in a game.

I’m sure the Airport guests will love this, because you actually hop inside the X-Wing’s cockpit and get your photo taken! During select times, Pilots and Stormtroopers will be making appearances too. Scroll down for more detailed info on this!

As part of the one time-only show, the Stormtroopers marched from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2.

It was a little chaotic because there were too many fans excited to see Stormtroopers marching around the Airport.

Star Wars at Changi Airport - TIE Fighter

At Terminal 2, you can find the TIE Fighter across from Check-In Row 1 (and Krispy Kreme). It’s described as 1:1 scale, but I think it should be slightly larger?

There are no activities here so it’s always available for photo taking during the campaign period.

Of course, all the characters gathered here for cool photo ops as part of the launch!
