Over the years, Changi Airport has welcomed many different aircraft. This year-end holiday season, it is receiving not one but two more; however, this time, they are from a bit further away than usual.

The public can also view a display of Star Wars items and play with an interactive panel where translator droid C-3PO (“human-cyborg relations”) will expound phrases and sayings in a host of international languages.
