Singapore Airlines (SIA) today launched Flight Pass, a new product that will allow customers to make advance purchases of discounted bundles of flight tickets that can be used against future bookings.
Flight Pass will initially be offered on SIA services between Singapore and France, Italy, South Korea, Spain, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. This includes the quarantine-free Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights1 from these destinations to Singapore, if their trip starts from Singapore. Flight Pass will be progressively expanded to other points in the SIA network.
The key feature of Flight Pass is its flexibility. Customers may lock in discounted air fares for multiple flights, and decide on their travel dates at their convenience, subject to seat availability. The travel can be customised based on parameters such as destinations, the number of flights, the travel period, and fare type.
The tickets in each Flight Pass bundle can also be shared with family members, friends, colleagues, or anyone else that the buyer chooses. This allows the travellers to enjoy cost savings by pooling together their travel.
Customers may purchase and manage their passes via SIA’s Flight Pass website at https://singaporeair.optiontown.com. Flight Pass is offered in collaboration with Optiontown, a US-based provider of innovative travel options.
Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Executive Vice President Commercial, Singapore Airlines said: “As more quarantine-free international travel flights become available, Flight Pass offers Singapore Airlines customers greater flexibility and options when planning their trips. It allows them to enjoy greater cost savings by pooling their travel, and tailoring it according to their preferences. SIA will continue to find innovative ways to add value and offer even better choices for our customers.”
