Fly Singapore Airlines And Stay In Singapore For US$1!
From 15 April, Singapore Airlines, together with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Singapore Changi Airport, will offer all its customers the Fabulous Singapore Stopover Package for just US$1 for the first night stay in Singapore.
Aimed at stimulating tourism during this economic downturn, the Fabulous Singapore Stopover package offers Singapore Airlines customers an opportunity to stop over in Singapore for almost nothing. The Stopover package covers exclusive deals on hotel accommodation, airport transfers and entry to some of Singapore’s leading tourist attractions.
Customers will each be given S$10 Changi vouchers, which they can use to pay for purchases at the many retail and food and beverage outlets at Changi Airport. Customers can collect these vouchers, courtesy of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), at the SIA Singapore Stopover Holiday counters when they arrive in Singapore. They can also take advantage of free ground transfers to and from Changi Airport and unlimited use of the Singapore Airlines’ “Hop-On Bus” – an air-conditioned bus service that allows customers to visit over 20 major attractions in Singapore.
The package also includes free admission to attractions including Sentosa Island, Singapore Zoo, Malay Heritage Centre, National Orchid Garden, Peranakan Museum, Singapore River Bumboat Tour and Jurong Bird Park.
Other goodies in the package include a 50 per cent dining discount at designated food outlets at selected hotels, a free SingTel Prepaid Mobile hi!Card, which customers can use to make calls and Singapore Airlines Boarding Pass Privileges, which offer discounts on shopping, dining, sightseeing tours, tourist attractions and car rentals when customers present their Singapore Airlines boarding passes.
This attractive package is valid for travel and hotel stay from 15 April to 30 September 2009. At US$1 for the first night, travelers can choose to stay from a list of six hotels. For a little more indulgence, they can also choose to stay in other hotels at first night rates of US$20, US$30 and US$40 respectively (refer to Annex 1 for hotel list). These special first night rates are based per person on a twin-share basis.
“We hope this special US$1 deal will entice travelers to stop over in Singapore and experience the buzz and unique attractions that this country has to offer. For those already thinking of going on a holiday, this attractive package will give them the extra ‘push’ to travel with Singapore Airlines and stopover in Singapore,” said Mr Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President, Marketing and The Regions.
CAAS and STB have once again joined hands with Singapore Airlines to provide many value-added deals for this special Stopover package.
CAAS’ Director-General & Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lim Kim Choon, said, “Through this partnership, we hope to pass on greater value to our passengers, especially during this time. We hope such collaborative campaigns will help entice more travellers to come to Singapore or to stop over here on their way to other points in the region.”
Mr Chew Tiong Heng, Director of Destination Marketing at the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), elaborated, "This Fabulous Singapore Stopover Package is a key example of how travelers can benefit from the 2009 Reasons to enjoy Singapore campaign, which is taking place till end of the year. With a slew of many other offers and perks, 2009 is definitely a good year to enjoy Singapore for less.”
The worldwide sale of this special package will be launched on 15 April 2009. This promotion cannot be used in conjunction with other offers like the SIA Holidays or other travel packages. For more details and other terms and conditions, please log on to singaporeair.com/ssh.
