    From/to which terminals? Normally AUS/UK is not a problem just a few gates away in the same terminal, the biggest delay will be the security screening but that was done at the gate on our last few trips through there.

    Very surprised you got a ticket with such a short time gap, the airlines normally recommend 1hr 45min as a minimum on international flights, unless you booked independant flights?

    Changi has a great website for info so try them too.

    Just looked on the changi web site, lokks as though Adelaide flighst could possiblyland at either terminals 2 & 3, so a longer transfer may be needed, there is a train link between terminals but as you are in transit on connecting flights then there is more than likely a special route you need to take if you are at diff terminals which is usually signed. Ask the questions online on the web page, they are usually very helpful.

    Your travel agent should have known better, the the airlines usually prevent this or red flag it at the time of booking, so the travel agent could then warn you.

    Hi

    having done it in April there is a fast shuttle train between the terminals that's takes a matter of minutes. Don't forget to go t the transfer desk in your new terminal as even if you have been booked through they tend to reallocate the seats as sometimes the plane type changes

    Most SIngapore airways flights are terminal 3. There is a shuttle train service between the terminals called Skytrain which runs every few minutes. We had to get from terminal 3 to terminal 1 (the transit hotel in terminal 3 was full), the train took notime at all but there was a bitof a walk to get to it. This map shows it all, even how longit takes to walk from one spot to another.

    I've been UK - Singapore - Perth with a 50 minute layover. No problems at all. The gates where at complete opposite end of the airport.
