Singapore Airlines and SilkAir customers transiting in Singapore have some new perks to look forward to with the enhancement of the recently introduced Changi Transit Program. For a limited period from now until June 30, 2013, eligible customers will receive $40 worth of Changi Dollar Vouchers (CDVs) per ticket – double the amount since the Changi Transit Program began on October 1, 2012.
To qualify for the CDVs, customers must travel on Singapore Airlines or SilkAir on both their inbound and outbound flights, with a 13-digit e-ticket receipt number beginning with 618 or 629.The CDVs are valid for one-time use at more than 450 retail, food and service outlets in 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 six hours. Services at the lounge include showers, light refreshments, unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, and a wide range of reading materials. Travelers can also look forward to amenities such as airport-wide complimentary WiFi, movie theatres and themed gardens while transiting at Changi Airport, where a convenient Skytrain transport system in both the transit and public areas provides easy access to all three terminals.
Mr. Peh Ke-Wei, CAG’s vice president for Passenger Development, said, “Due to overwhelming demand from travelers for the original Changi Transit Program, we decided to improve the benefits to entice more passengers to fly through Changi for their upcoming trips. Coupled with Changi Airport’s renowned transit experience and Singapore Airlines’ and SilkAir’s extensive flight network, the enhanced program will make transiting at Changi even more compelling. CAG will continue to introduce new promotions to cater to the ever-changing needs of travelers.”
Sheldon Hee, Singapore Airlines’ senior manager Marketing Communications and Development, said, “With the launch of the enhanced Changi Transit Program, our transit customers will be able to experience more of what Changi Airport has to offer. In addition, by presenting their CDVs in conjunction with their Singapore Airlines or SilkAir boarding pass at participating stores, they will be able to enjoy even more privileges and discounts under the Boarding Pass Privileges Program.”
To collect their CDVs, eligible customers should present both their electronic ticket and boarding pass of their Singapore-bound flight at any of the seven Information Counters in the transit areas of Terminals 2 and 3. The CDVs are issued while stocks last and will expire on March 31, 2014.
After June 30, 2013, eligible customers transiting in Singapore will receive $20 worth of CDVs, under the original Changi Transit Program, which will continue until March 31, 2014.
