On May 3, a group of children were given a tour of CSIA and then entertained with fairground attractions such as jugglers, clowns and stilt-walkers.
Passengers through the gateway were also treated to a red carpet experience and handed specially designed chocolate boxes.
A twitter competition – #FlightBuddy – rewarded passengers for quirky responses in naming their favourite flight buddy.
