The partnership will drive destination awareness and empower more Filipinos to experience Singapore though exciting promotions and campaigns

MANILA, 19 APRIL 2022 – Philippine Airlines (PAL), the flagship carrier of the Republic of the Philippines, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to promote travel to Singapore.

The agreement was signed on April 19, 2022, in the presence of Stanley Ng, President of PAL and Keith Tan, Chief Executive of STB. To kickstart the partnership, the PAL and STB will commence work on a joint campaign featuring well-loved PAL in-flight voice Inka Magnaye. Inka will take her first overseas trip outside of the Philippines, visiting Singapore to discover the vibrant destination first-hand. As part of STB’s SingapoReimagine campaign, Inka’s trip will aim to reignite Filipinos’ passion for travel by showcasing how Singapore has reimagined itself through fresh and innovative experiences.

Apart from this joint campaign, passengers of PAL will also be entitled to exclusive Boarding Pass privileges that provide special deals and promotions across a wide range of tourism establishments in Singapore, including Museum of Ice Cream, Mandai Wildlife Reserve, establishments on Sentosa, and more.

Capt Stanley Ng, President and Chief Operating Officer of PAL said, “Philippine Airlines is thrilled to partner with Singapore, a destination known the world over. With two daily PAL flights to Singapore and drawing from over eight decades of service in being part of the journeys of countless Filipinos, PAL is excited to explore and create unique opportunities for Filipino travelers to experience Singapore.”

PAL is now offering base fares to Singapore for as low as USD160 round trip. With PAL’s extensive domestic network, travelers throughout the Philippines can avail of daily flights from most domestic points to PAL’s Manila hub for easy connections to Singapore.

Keith Tan, Chief Executive of STB said, “As we welcome more Filipino travellers back to Singapore, Philippine Airlines is an ideal partner for STB to launch attractive promotions and campaigns. Now that fully-vaccinated travellers can visit Singapore easily, this partnership is timely and an important part of our tourism recovery efforts. We have an exciting lineup of new experiences and events that await our friends from the Philippines, and we look forward to seeing them in Singapore soon.”

Since 1 Apr 2022, vaccinated travellers to Singapore enjoy a streamlined travel process (see Annex A), requiring only proof of vaccination, a pre-departure Covid-19 test, and a simple SG Arrival Card. With a 92% vaccination rate[1] in Singapore, travellers can visit Singapore with peace-of-mind. The partnership between PAL and STB is thus apt to capture the rebound in tourist demand, and endear Filipinos to Singapore as a destination through exclusive promotions and deals.
