Marina Bay Sands and SATS have jointly
introduced a new city check-in and baggage acceptance service –
the first of its kind in Singapore – for hotel guests and visitors
heading to Changi Airport.
With the launch of the Baggage Express service,
Marina Bay Sands’ guests and customers departing on Singapore
Airlines (SIA) and SilkAir flights can enjoy the convenience of
checking-in at least three hours before their flights depart. They
can receive their boarding passes and baggage claim tags at Marina
Bay Sands. Checked-in guests can also proceed directly to clear
immigration at Singapore Changi Airport and be at the boarding
gate before it closes.
Checking in at a downtown
location offers users greater flexibility to maximise their time
before leaving Singapore. The service will also be extended to cover
more participating airlines in the coming months.
“Marina Bay Sands is proud to partner SATS in launching this
first-ever city check-in service in Singapore. It speaks volumes
of our ability to provide innovative and first-to-market services
to our guests. All our hotel guests and visitors to our property
are able to enjoy this one-stop check-in service. This is another
value-added offering that Marina Bay Sands is providing for the
convenience of our guests, and we will continue to introduce more
innovative services in the coming months,” said Marina Bay Sands
President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Thomas Arasi.
Marina Bay Sands’ Coach Terminal, the check-in counters will
initially operate from Thursday to Monday from 10 am to 6 pm.
The Baggage Express service is free for guests without
any check-in luggage. A handling charge of Sin$25 for every two bags
applies. The check-in service is also open to hotel guests staying
in other parts of Singapore.
The accepted baggage
will be transported to Changi Airport with regular transport runs
and will undergo security screening at the airport. The counters
at Marina Bay Sands are manned primarily by SATS’ personnel.
