Indonesia – Swiss-Belhotel International, the global hospitality management chain, has formed a partnership with Changi Rewards Travel (CRT), a first-of-its-kind airport programme that rewards frequent travellers when travelling through Changi Airport.
 
Through this partnership, CRT members will enjoy special discounted rates at over 60 Indonesian hotels, while Indonesia-based Swiss-Belhotel Executive Card (SBEC) members can enjoy special discounts and additional rewards when they sign up for CRT.
 
Designed to reward frequent travellers who travel through Changi Airport, CRT features specially-curated travel privileges for its members, including lounge access in most airports worldwide in the event of a flight delay, compensation for missed flight connections, as well as airport limousine services at Changi, and many more. For a start, CRT has been launched in Indonesia, one of Singapore's largest passenger markets.
 
A Pay-to-Access Elite membership entitles members instantaneous access to CRT’s full suite of travel privileges, which includes additional Lounge Access at Changi, Airport Limousine Services passes, as well as excusive discounts off Meet & Greet Services, and many more.
 
Indonesia-based SBEC members who join the CRT programme will also enjoy automatic enrolment in the Changi Rewards programme, which rewards spending on retail and dining at Changi Airport and Jewel Changi Airport. Indonesia-based SBEC members who join the CRT programme will also receive 200 Changi Rewards welcome points, which they can redeem for shopping and dining at Changi Airport.
 
In return, CRT members can now benefit from exclusive room rates at a growing collection of 60+ hotels across Indonesia. 
 
“Changi Airport is a key gateway hub and transit point for Indonesian travellers, so we are delighted to have formed this new partnership with Changi Rewards Travel. Our esteemed Indonesian guests can now travel in style and comfort at Changi, with access to airport lounges, airport limousine services and more,” commented Gavin M. Faull, Chairman and President of Swiss-Belhotel International.
 
“We are also pleased to provide exclusive rates for CRT members at our extensive collection of hotels and resorts in Indonesia. We look forward to welcoming even more Indonesian guests as a result of this partnership. This is another wonderful example of how Swiss-Belhotel International is striving to make travel simpler, easier and more comfortable for all,” he added.

Through this partnership, CRT members can enjoy attractive hotel discounts when they travel in Indonesia.  Upon successful sign up with CRT, SBEC members will benefit from CRT’s specially-curated travel privileges when they travel through Changi Airport.  We look forward to making our members’ air travel journeys more enjoyable.”

A record 65.6 million passengers travelled through Changi Airport in 2018, and the Singapore hub is set to become even more popular following the recent opening of Jewel Changi Airport, its spectacular new indoor sanctuary. Featuring over 280 shopping and dining outlets, a canopy park and the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, this breath-taking development is set to elevate the airport experience at Changi Airport.
