Leisure travel for those with wanderlust is still elusive, probably returning only in the second half of the year. Hence, going beyond the departure gates may be just a flight of fancy. However, on 17 and 18 April, some Mummyfique readers had an unparalleled opportunity to rediscover Changi Airport in an exclusive shopping experience at Terminal 3’s transit area. At two different time slots each day, guests had an indulgent four hours in the transit area’s shopping haven, with selected luxury brands offering GST-absorbed prices, and attractive discounts.

Check in at the departure counters with your passport, NRIC and Changi Rewards e-Card to begin your transit shopping experience.

Counters were dedicated to registering guests attending this shopping experience.

Before entering the transit area, guests checked in at one of two dedicated counters with their passport, NRIC and Changi Rewards e-Card. In return, they received an airport pass to access the transit area. Each group also had their own personal guide to show them around. 

While personal travel is still on hold, guests, accompanied by their private guides, could finally access the restricted transit area for this event.

Changi Rewards e-Card

Aside from gaining access into the transit area, Changi Rewards e-Card members can also enjoy a host of privileges. For starters, collect points as you spend, and convert these to e-Vouchers or KrisFlyer miles, or redeem attractive rewards. Moreover, Changi Rewards members also have free lounge access twice a year.
