When the skies quieten in Changi


当樟宜的天空静下来

On 24 March 2020, Singapore banned all short-term visitors from entering or transiting through Singapore in view of the heightened risks of importing coronavirus cases. As the COVID-19 outbreak escalated in early 2020, many countries implemented tighter border control. This photo series documents the empty, quiet and deserted scenes in Changi Airport after Singapore banned all short-term visitors from entering or transiting through Singapore in view of the heightened risks of importing coronavirus cases at that time, and most airlines grounded their flights. While Changi Airport took a hard hit, it remained steadfast in maintaining operations and serving those who needed to travel during those challenging times. The photo series was published in Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报 on 26 April 2020.
