Airport co-working centre launched for business travellers
The pay-per-minute space at Changi Airport has close to 50 hot desking stations and nap pods, allowing travellers to ‘check-in’ at work.
Airports do not have a lot of private and quiet spaces where travellers can comfortably do work tasks like video conferencing. Business lounges are also not accessible to many. To give travellers a space fit for their working needs, JustCo launched a pay-per-minute co-working centre at Changi Airport, Terminal 3.
The co-working centre has close to 50 hot desking workstations, making it one of JustCo’s largest hot desking facilities to date.
The centre features hot desk cocoons fit for travellers who want extended privacy and focus in a co-working environment.
It also has nap pods with privacy partitions where travellers can get rest between flights or work.
“From nap pods and meeting rooms to diverse food options, users have everything they need to stay productive and comfortable during their layover or remote work session,” Kong Wan Long, co-founder and chief commercial officer of JustCo, told the Singapore Business Review.
Kong said Changi Airport T3’s flexible pricing model caters to travellers and individuals who need a place to work for a few hours or even just minutes. The price is reasonable at $0.10 per-minute, or $6 per hour.
“Travellers need a quiet workspace for short period to take calls, respond to work emails, or complete other tasks. Additionally, some travellers opt to reach the airport early to get some work done before their flight,” Kong said.
“These different business needs highlight the potential for us to launch Asia’s first pay-per-minute co-working centre at the airport for business travellers,” Kong added.
Since Changi is an airport that never sleeps, JustCo also operates its co-working space 24/7.
“As business travel resumes in full force and digital nomads increasingly seek out conducive workspaces on the go, JustCo saw an opportunity to launch our first venture in an airport. There is no better place than Changi Airport, renowned for its world-class facilities,” Kong said.
The JustCo Terminal 3 co-working space is heavily influenced by the Changi Airport’s architecture.
The co-working space has a nature-inspired look and is adorned with ample wood, rattan, and greenery, among other elements.
“The incorporation of rattan furniture, alongside wooden accents, complements the nature-inspired theme of the centre, creating a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere infused with a distinct Asian touch,” Kong said.
“It also subtly reminds users that they’re nestled in sunny Singapore, evoking a strong sense of place,” he added.
Further showcasing the nature-inspired theme of the centre, JustCo also put tree-like planters with modular mobile seating dotting the pathway to fill the ample space whilst echoing the airport’s arrival hall.
“JustCo’s in-house design team also optimised space usage by curating pockets of open event space that allow flexible adaptation based on the needs of our users,” Kong said.
Apart from hot desking, Kong said JustCo also offers private suites for businesses looking to house their teams in close proximity to Changi Airport.
