Transfer from ferry terminal to airport! Please urgent help:

Hi

I am going to Bintan Island from Singapore. On my return i have a trip to Siemp Reap with jet airlines at 1335 and i could do check in online.

Unfortunately i did not calculate the hour difference between two places, so if i take the first ferry 935 i arrive at 1130 to Singapore ferry terminal. How long will take me to get to the airport?

130 hours is enough considering that i only have to drop the bag at Jetair counter and my check in will be done?

Changi Airport is less than half an hour by cab but the queue may be long as many people will want to take cabs. You might want to book in advance.

The check in counter for Jetstar closes 45 mins before departure (but you have to queue and then be at your boarding gate at least 40 mins before).

Mishigato, hi

YES, normally it`s 20-30 min to get to the airport from the city. I`m not sure how long the ferry disembarkation may take, but you need to be in the airport in front of the check-in counter at least 45 min before the scheduled departure if you have no luggage to check-in..... if later you`ll be denied from boarding.

here is taxi fare and travel time calculator

Uff i think is tight, i will make it. I've heard that ferries are on time so even if i am there at 12. I still have an 130 before departure. Fingers cross and trust the process.

Btw on my way I arrive at Singapore at 10 and have my ferry at 16 hours.

Any tips to do during this 5 hours, also do you know about storage lockers i will like to leave my bag somewhere and roam around. China town maybe? I will appreciate any tips where to eat and what to see.

Hello,

Which ferry are you taking to Bintan? Please check your ticket. Ferries to Bintan depart from 2 ports: Singapore Cruise Centre (SCC) and the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (TMFT). SCC is at Harbourfront, quite a way from Changi Airport. TMFT as the name implies is at Tanah Merah and not far from the airport.
