Travelers can enjoy greater savings and more flexibility by pre-purchasing multiple flight tickets at a discount.
With the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to drive uncertainty in the travel landscape, Singapore’s flag carrier has teamed up with Optiontown, a U.S.–based provider of travel options, to launch Flight Pass, a brand-new product that allows customers to buy discounted bundles of flight tickets in advance and use them for 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) flights from these destinations to Singapore, if the customer’s trip starts from Changi Airport. Flight Pass will then be progressively expanded to other points in the SIA network.
The key feature of Flight Pass is its flexibility. Customers can lock in discounted air fares for multiple flights, and decide on their travel dates later on, subject to seat availability. They will also get to customize their choices 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 the buyer chooses.
Lee Lik Hsin, the airline’s Executive Vice President Commercial, said in a statement, “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.”
Customers can now buy and manage their passes via SIA’s Flight Pass website at singaporeair.optiontown.com.
