Singapore Airlines and Grab Agree on Extensive Partnership
Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Grab today announced a partnership to provide customers with more seamless travel experiences. SIA and Grab will integrate their mobile apps to offer enhanced convenience to customers when travelling to the airport in six countries across Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This marks the coming together of the world’s most awarded airline and Southeast Asia’s leading ride-hailing and payments platform.
Starting today, SIA customers can book Grab rides through the SingaporeAir mobile app. Customers using the app will see an option to book a Grab ride to the airport seven days before their scheduled flight. Selecting this option will direct customers to the Grab app, where they can choose to order a Grab ride to the airport on-demand or in advance. The airport will be automatically listed as the destination, so the user simply fills in the pick-up point and desired time.
Members of SIA’s KrisFlyer and Grab’s GrabRewards programmes will enjoy additional benefits under the new partnership. GrabRewards members have the flexibility to convert their GrabRewards points into KrisFlyer miles. Customers also stand a chance to win a pair of Economy Class tickets to The Maldives in a contest. To take part, customers simply have to enter the code ‘GRABSQ’ in the promo field in the Grab app booking screen for every Grab ride they take between 11 October and 11 November 2017. The customer with the most Grab rides booked during this period will win.
