The Singapore Police Force has issued a warning to residents not to "misuse" their boarding passes after a man was arrested for buying a ticket to walk his wife to the gate.
The misuse of boarding passes is an offense in Singapore, where transit areas are considered "protected places."
If the idea that anyone would actively want to spend time in an airport sounds odd, you haven't flown through Singapore.
When Changi's new Jewel terminal opened in April, it made headlines around the globe for its 40-meter waterfall (the world's largest indoor one), a 14,000-square-meter Canopy Park, complete with a suspension bridge, topiary and mazes, and one of Asia's largest indoor gardens with 3,000 trees and 60,000 shrubs.
Overstaying your welcome in the terminal is a thing, here.
Anyone accessing the gate-side areas at Changi without intending to fly can be prosecuted under Singapore's Infrastructure Protection Act and fined up to S$20,000 or imprisoned for up to two years.
Thirty-three people have been arrested under the legislation in the first eight months of 2019.
