S$20 million tie-up to boost Singapore’s tourism numbers

SINGAPORE Airlines, Changi Airport and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) will spend S$20 million over the next two years to jointly market Singapore as a tourism destination.

This is the largest collaboration among the three partners to date, they said in a joint statement on Tuesday.

The campaign will boost efforts to not just attract leisure travellers but also the business and meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (Mice) segments from more than 15 markets worldwide.

“This partnership demonstrates our commitment to further developing our home base as a travel hub and promoting Singapore as a destination of choice,” said Singapore Airlines' chief executive, Goh Choon Phong.
The tie-up will include a new product, the Singapore Stopover Premium package, targeted at premium leisure and business travellers. It includes stays in selected five-star hotels, priority hotel check-in services and private transfers, discount vouchers and access to attractions across the island. An existing tour that takes transit passengers on a free guided tour of Singapore has been enhanced, as part of the partnership.

The itinerary is longer, from two hours previously to two and a half hours, and covers more attractions such as Gardens by the Bay and Kampong Glam. Seasonal editions of the tour during festive periods, such as tours of Orchard Road during Christmas, have also been added. “The new product offerings demonstrate Singapore Airlines, Changi Airport Group and STB's commitment to provide today's discerning travellers with a more seamless and in-depth experience,” said Mr Lionel Yeo, chief executive of the STB.

He added: “To constantly refresh and add value to the visitor experience, it is essential for the industry to rally together; STB looks forward to more partnerships with the industry.”

The new fund is an expansion of a $35million partnership between Changi Airport Group and STB announced in April, which aims to achieve average annual growth of 3 to 4 per cent in visitor arrivals over the next decade.

In 2014, Singapore attracted 15.1 million international visitors, a 3.1 per cent dip from 2013's record 15.6 million. It was the first time since 2009 that the numbers fell.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
