Twenty-three people were arrested in 2023 for the misuse of boarding passes under the Infrastructure Protection Act. They had used their boarding pass to enter the transit area of Changi Airport for reasons other than to travel out of Singapore, police said.
As there will be concerts featuring international artists and pop groups over the next few months in Singapore, the police said it “would like to remind members of the public that the transit areas of Changi Airport are gazetted as Protected Places”.
Those who make use of their boarding pass to enter the transit areas for reasons other than to travel out of Singapore will be detected and arrested, said the police.
Those found guilty face a fine of up to S$20,000 (US$14,738), a jail term of up to two years, or both.
