Singapore Changi Airport Staff Canteen at Terminal 2

Singapore Changi Airport Staff Canteen at Terminal 2

Share this awesome post!

In a world-class airport like Changi Airport, most foods are ridiculously overpriced.

But, my friends, fret not. There are 2 staff canteens in the airport where you can find food under S$5, one in Terminal 1 and another one in Terminal 2.

Today, I’m going to show you how to find the new staff canteen at Terminal 2 because the canteen is rather hidden from the public. Previously managed by Select, the canteen is now managed by Kopitiam.  Watch my video here:


1. Use Kopitiam card (blue colour) to get 10% discount off your purchase. If you don’t have, just purchase one from the self-service machine. But, do your cost-benefit analysis beforehand because a new card costs a couple of bucks.

2. Once you finish eating, return the tray to tray collection area and tap your Kopitiam card to a card reader to get 2 points. 40 points give you a free coffee/tea.

Let me know what you think of the canteen and what’s your favourite food!

  2. Hello,
    Are you able to get a beer in the staff canteen areas?

    1. Hi Fiona, I don’t recall seeing any alcohol in the canteen.

  3. Could you tell me open hours? is it 24hours?

    1. Hey FH, it’s open from 7am – 9pm only, not 24 hours. I have included the opening hours in the video (at 1:20) but probably it’s too fast to be noticeable. Thanks for the input!
