Why Changi Airport wants to you stick around for a day or two

Of all the airports in the world Singapore's Changi is probably the most pleasant in which to spend a few hours waiting for a transfer. 

But Singapore tourism officials want flyers to spend a day or two exploring rather than an hour or two in the airport.

With over 1.4 million Australians travelling through Changi Airport annually, heading to key destinations including Europe, India and Thailand, Singapore has become a key stop-over.



With transfer passengers currently making up about 30% of Changi’s total traffic, the airport is looking to enhance the experience for its transfer guests and, in partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board, has announced a new ‘Changi Stopovers’ program aimed at enticing­­ passengers to stop over in Singapore and explore the Lion City.

From today, travellers are able to book a stopover package from as little as $63 per person which includes a complimentary one-way airport transfer, a mobile SIM card for data roaming and a choice of 20 hotel partners.

The partnership hopes to better serve stop-over passengers and strengthen Changi’s position as a regional hub of choice.

‘Changi Stopovers’ will be promoted jointly by CAG and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to overseas travellers in a $3.2 million marketing partnership spanning two years.
