For the coming year-end festive season, Changi Airport is bringing to fans favourite Sanrio characters and friends (all eight of them, to be exact) for a super kawaii evening extravaganza at Terminal 3!

Get ready to be wowed by a first-in-Changi indoor drone show featuring as many as 40 drones, lighting up the dimmed ‘sky’ with enchanting formations that will delight fans both young and young-at-heart.

Be enchanted by Hello Kitty and her friends such as Gudetama and My Melody in a magical song and dance that will get you on your feet.

Hello Kitty & Friends

Step into Changi’s Mystical Garden featuring life-sized Sanrio characters complete with a gazebo and a treehouse, topped with the cute kitty’s signature ribbon for the most unforgettable photo opportunities.

Not forgetting the must-have snow show, a perennial crowd favourite to usher in the year-end festivities. Sanrio fans and airport visitors can also take part in fun activities at the event area opposite T3 Check-in Row 11.

That’s not all! As part of the festivities, an EVA Air Sanrio family-themed aircraft will land at Changi Airport.

Sanrio fans will be overjoyed by the display of adorable characters in the cabin, their accompanying amenities such as pillows and utensils, as well as Hello Kitty in-flight meals.

Date: 18 November 2017 to 5 January 2018

Special treats for everyone

Japanese-style fun and games for all

Over at the event space at the T3 Departure Hall Check-in Row 11, specially curated games and activities await travellers and visitors throughout the holiday season.
