Sora Japan Gourmet Hall Opens at Changi Airport Terminal 2

The newest and largest dining concept to open in Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 departure hall is the SORA Japan gourmet hall. It is located on level three just above from Check-in counter row 7 (ANA). SORA houses six Japanese restaurant brands which serve up ramen, sashimi, okonomiyaki and beverages. You can dine here between 10.30am and 11pm any day of the week.

SORA means sky in Japanese and is operated by ANA Trading, the trading arm of Japanese airline All Nippon Airways. Interestingly, ANA Trading also handles boarding tickets, airport stores, in-flight sales and in-flight entertainment such as visual materials, aircraft bodies and aircraft parts. ANA Trading Group companies operate under five companies – Retail Business, Digital Marketing, Food Business Company, Aerospace & Electronics Company and Lifestyle Business Company.

This is the first SORA outlet outside of Japan. SORA Gourmet Hall is modelled after airline lounges which offer dining and beverage options as well as many different seating options with power sockets to charge devices.
