Travellers generally don’t give much thought to their boarding passes. For most they’re simply a way of getting on to a flight or perhaps picking up some duty free goodies prior to departure. However, with Singapore Airlines, a boarding pass is more than just a means for taking your seat on a plane: it’s your ticket to a wide range of exclusive privileges beyond the airport – from discounts in top restaurants and on hotel accommodation, to reduced price admission for tourist sights and other great attractions.
Singapore’s long-standing reputation for culinary excellence makes it one of the best places in the world for dining. From hawker centres serving delicious local fare to some of the finest restaurants in Asia, the country covers every possible base. And, thanks to their boarding passes, Singapore Airlines travellers can obtain discounts at some of the country’s very best restaurants. These include 20 per cent off at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and 10 per cent off at Jumbo Seafood, a spiritual home of chilli crab, Singapore’s de facto national dish.
With respected establishments such as Goodwood Park Hotel providing plenty of history and more modern options pointing firmly towards the future, Singapore’s not short on sumptuous places to lay your head. With a Singapore Airlines boarding pass, guests can enjoy a range of privileges at some of the island’s most prestigious addresses. These include discounts on room rates, unlimited free internet, complimentary breakfast, access to club lounges and late check-out at the Goodwood Park and Park Regis Singapore hotels.
