Note: SMRT had used to operate the branch sector of Tanah Merah to Changi Airport as a through line from Boon Lay (Boon Lay - Changi Airport via Tanah Merah, Joo Koon was not built at that time) since the opening of Changi Airport station on 2002 until July 22, 2003. This was due to low demand on Expo and Changi Airport that made SMRT revert this sector as shuttle service.[1] Similar to the through service, the interval of trains remained as 12 minutes per train.
