Changi Transit Programme

Your transit experience at Singapore Changi Airport is now more rewarding! Receive a Changi Dollar Voucher (CDV), valued from S$20, for your shopping and refreshments during your transit in Changi Airport, when you travel on Singapore Airlines, SilkAir or Air New Zealand.

The CDV can be redeemed for one-time access to the Ambassador Transit Lounge located in the transit areas of Terminals 2 and 3 for up to two (2) hours. Lounge usage includes showers with basic toiletries, free flow buffet of food and non-alcoholic beverages, complimentary Wi-Fi, and international reading materials. Passengers can also enjoy other exclusive offers* from the Ambassador Transit Lounge.

For passengers eligible for S$40 CDV, you would receive two S$20 CDVs where one of which will be valid for one-time use to redeem Liquor, Perfumes or Cosmetics purchases only. This CDV can also be used at the services / spa area of the Shilla duplex store in the transit area of Terminal 3 and featured brands include Dior, SKII, Chanel and La Prairie.

Here are some recommended ways to spend the CDV, with no minimum spend at all!

Local delights at Bengawan Solo, Terminal 2 Departure Transit

For example, a passenger whose journey is:

    (i)        “Bombay – Singapore, Kuala Lumpur – Singapore – Bombay” AND Singapore – Kuala Lumpur is by land/sea AND in a single e-ticket, is eligible;
    (ii)        “Beijing – Singapore, Bangkok – Singapore –Shanghai” AND Singapore – Bangkok is by sea AND in a single e-ticket, is eligible;
