Singapore Airlines (SIA) today joined hands with the country's leading brands to offer unique on ground and in-flight experiences for its global customer base.
Under the initiative Singapore Showcase, SIA has worked with the country's renowned hawker brands to enhance the airline’s popular local fare options by presenting their distinctive dishes to customers.
As a result, the airline will be able to offer an even wider range of Singapore’s iconic hawker cuisine onboard flights out of Singapore, the company said in a statement.
Singapore’s Hawker Culture was also added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2021.
The carrier has also partnered with local media production and distribution companies to offer more Singaporean content in its KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system.
The partnership will result in an even larger selection of Singaporean movies, documentaries, television series, music, and podcasts for our customers, and introduce some of Singapore’s leading talents to the world.
SIA has also worked with Scent by SIX, a Singapore-based artisanal perfume label, to develop a unique signature scent for the airline.
This scent includes floral notes from flowers in SIA’s new batik motif and will be introduced at key customer-facing locations, helping to create a unique sensory experience for passengers during their journey with us which will elevate their overall customer experience.
Yeoh Phee Teik, Senior Vice President Customer Experience, Singapore Airlines, said: “As travel gradually resumes, our customers from around the world can enjoy even more uniquely Singaporean experiences when they fly with Singapore Airlines. This is a part of our goal to collaborate with a diverse range of partners in Singapore and globally, and deliver a personalised, contextual and meaningful engagement to our customers.”
Jason Thian, Director of Boon Tong Kee, said, “Chicken rice is synonymous with Singapore’s hawker heritage, and Boon Tong Kee is extremely honoured to be offered this rare opportunity to have our chicken rice featured on Singapore Airlines’ flights. This collaboration with such a world-renowned and trusted brand like SIA would undoubtedly create greater awareness of not just Singapore’s chicken rice, but more importantly Singapore’s Hawker Culture.”
