Online PR News – 30-November-2021 – Singapore – Optiontown and Singapore Airlines Launch Flight Pass, Customers Can Now Enjoy Greater Savings and Flexibility

29 November 2021: Optiontown in partnership with Singapore Airlines (SIA) introduces Flight Pass, a new product which allows customers to purchase multiple flight tickets in advance at highly discounted rates and use them for future bookings as per their convenience.

A key feature of Flight Pass is the flexibility and convenience that it offers customers. Flight Pass can be customized based on parameters such as destinations, number of flights, travel period and fare type. It can also be shared with anyone that the customer chooses. In particular, Flight Pass allows customers to lock in discounted air fares for multiple flights and decide on their travel dates at a later date. Flight Pass will save customers the hassle of searching for flight fares every time they wish to travel, thus saving over 90% of the total flight planning, searching and booking time. As Flight Pass locks-in the low fare for the customer, the customer can just look up their preferred flight and book it instantly.

Flight Pass will initially be offered for flights 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 trip starts from Singapore. Flight Pass will be progressively expanded to other points in the Singapore Airlines network.

Flight Pass offers great value for both leisure and corporate customers across all customer segments, including families traveling for vacations or personal trips, students, small business owners, medium size businesses and large corporate customers or government agencies. Flight Pass can be shared across family members or corporate colleagues, thus providing additional flexibility in travel planning while enjoying cost savings by pooling the travel demand together.

Customers can purchase and manage their passes directly via the website at https://singaporeair.optiontown.com.

Sachin Goel, founder and CEO of Optiontown, said “Optiontown is very excited to offer our flagship product Flight Pass with Singapore Airlines. Flight Pass will enhance the travel planning and booking experience for Singapore Airlines customers while enabling them to enjoy lower travel costs. At a time when airlines are looking to innovate and get customers flying again, Flight Pass is the perfect tool to connect passengers with their travel plans more closely than ever before.”

Lee Lik Hsin, executive vice president Commercial, Singapore Airlines said “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.”
