SINGAPORE AIRLINES AND GRAB AGREE ON EXTENSIVE PARTNERSHIP

     SIA customers can now book Grab rides through Singapore Air mobile app
     Members can convert GrabRewards points to KrisFlyer miles from October

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 GrabRewardsprogrammes will enjoy additional benefits under the new partnership. GrabRewards membershave 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.

“We are thrilled to bring more convenience to our customers on the ground and in the air through our new partnership with Grab, while also offering KrisFlyer and GrabRewards members the opportunity to convert points to miles and redeem them for award flights or flight upgrades. We are constantly seeking to enhance our SingaporeAir mobile app and KrisFlyerprogramme to ensure that we provide more benefits to our customers,” said SIA Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing, Mr Campbell Wilson.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr Jason Thompson, Head of GrabPay said: “Grab is honoured to serve as Singapore Airlines’ land transport partner in Southeast Asia. We have a shared commitment to innovation and delivering safe and high-quality travel experiences to passengers. At the same time, we are constantly making the Grab platform more rewarding for our customers. With GrabRewards, a dollar spent on Grab is more valuable than a dollar spent in cash. By integrating Grab’s and SIA’s loyalty programmes, customers can look forward to using their points when they plan for their next holiday. This partnership is a significant recognition by one of the most prestigious airlines in the world and I’m incredibly excited about what we’re going to achieve together.”

Grab today is in more than 100 cities across seven countries including Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar. Singapore Airlines operates services to over 60 destinations in more than 30 countries on five continents worldwide. 

About Singapore Airlines
The Singapore Airlines Group’s history dates back to 1947 with the maiden flight of Malayan Airways Limited. The airline was later renamed Malaysian Airways Limited and then Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA). In 1972, MSA split into Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Malaysian Airline System. Initially operating a modest fleet of 10 aircraft to 22 cities in 18 countries, SIA has since grown to be a world-class international airline group.
Singapore Airlines is committed to the constant enhancement of the three main pillars of its brand promise: Service Excellence, Product Leadership and Network Connectivity. The SIA Group fleet and network are also expanding in support of the development of its portfolio strategy, in which it has investments in both full-service and low-cost airline operations. This portfolio of airlines serving short-, medium-, and long-haul markets gives the SIA Group more flexibility and nimbleness, with the right vehicles to serve the right markets.
In May 2017, Stockholm became the second Scandinavian city in Singapore Airlines’ route network, while SIA’s subsidiary airlines also have plans for growth in their key markets.
