Press Release   •   Oct 01, 2012 14:53 SGT

Transiting in Singapore just became more attractive with the launch of the Changi Transit Programme.  From 1 October 2012 to 31 March 2014, eligible Singapore Airlines and SilkAir customers transiting at Changi Airport will be issued S$20 worth of Changi Dollar Vouchers (CDVs) each.

The CDVs are valid for one-time use at all retail, food and service outlets located at the transit and public areas of Terminals 1, 2 and 3, excluding outlets in the Arrival Baggage Claim Halls. They can also be redeemed for one-time access to the Ambassador Transit Lounge at Terminals 2 and 3 for up to three hours.

Lounge usage includes showers with basic toiletries, light refreshments, free flow of non-alcoholic beverages, local and international reading materials, as well as complimentary WiFi.

With more than 280 retail, service and food and beverage outlets in the transit areas as well as amenities such as movie theatres and themed gardens, travellers have much to experience when transiting through the award-winning Changi Airport.  A convenient Skytrain transport system allows passengers easy access to all three of Changi’s terminals.

To enjoy the Changi Transit Programme, customers must be travelling from Bangladesh, Brazil, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the US and Vietnam. In addition, customers’ Singapore-bound flights must be on either Singapore Airlines or SilkAir.

Eligible customers should present both their electronic ticket and boarding pass of their Singapore-bound flight before collecting their CDVs.  This can be done at all seven Information Counters in the transit areas of Terminals 2 and 3.  Issued while stocks last, the CDVs will expire on 31 March 2014.

Mr Peh Ke-Wei, CAG’s Vice President for Passenger Development, said, “We are pleased to work with Singapore Airlines and Silkair in offering the Changi Transit Programme.  With the exciting line-up of transit experiences on offer at Changi, we would like to encourage passengers to explore our airport and enjoy the Changi Experience during their layover”.

In addition, transit customers can enjoy even more privileges and discounts by presenting their Singapore Airlines or SilkAir boarding pass at participating stores, under the Boarding Pass Privileges Programme.   The CDVs can be used in conjunction with the Boarding Pass Privileges at participating outlets at Changi Airport.
