Changi enhances Free Singapore Tour program

3 Comments

Singapore Changi Airport has rejuvenated its popular Free Singapore Tour program.

Launched in partnership with Singapore Airlines, the new tour provides passengers transiting at Changi Airport an opportunity to enjoy some of Singapore’s iconic sights.

The Free Singapore Tour, introduced in 1987, is part of Changi Airport’s efforts to better serve passengers who are at Changi for long layover periods, enhancing Changi’s appeal as a transfer hub.

More than one million passengers, particularly those from Australia, China, Japan, India, the United Kingdom and the United States, have enjoyed this free service over the years.

The refreshed tourist program has two new itineraries, each offering a different glimpse of Singapore’s heritage and ever-changing cityscape.

The day itinerary, known as the Heritage Tour, is available four times a day and includes a visit to the Colonial District, Merlion Park and traditional favorites – Chinatown or Little India.

For the first time, an evening itinerary – the City Lights Tour – is available. It introduces passengers to Singapore’s vibrant nightlife where they will also get to view the panoramic views from the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade.

Both itineraries include Singapore’s newest attractions – Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer.

Peh Ke-Wei, Vice President, Passenger Development, Changi Airport Group, said, “We are very excited about the new tour itineraries which have been developed following a request for proposals from the in-bound travel sector. We have received very positive feedback from our passengers about the tour through the years, but with the changing tourism landscape in Singapore, it is an opportune time to refresh the program. At Changi, we believe very much in providing our passengers with the best experience, and we hope that those who have gone on the tour will want to return to Singapore for a longer stay soon.”

The Free Singapore Tour is available for free to passengers transiting at Changi Airport traveling on any airline. Passengers should have at least five hours in transit.

Now - thats good marketing tool and customer service - how about it Narita?

And what exactly are you going to see in 5 hours in Tokyo when it takes 2 hours round trip into the city? Not to mention the fact that offering anything of value for free in this country doesn't exist in their mindset.

Narita isn't even in Tokyo. There's a few rice paddies and a shrine, and that's about it. Chiba has nice natural features but Japanese-style postwar urban development has blighted most of that prefecture.
