19 September 2007 (JetQuay) - SINGAPORE - JetQuay’s CIP Terminal is the airport terminal of choice for "High Net Worth Individuals" at Changi International Airport, as it offers a sensory experience in transit, driven by a superior level of service. Such influential passengers are making JetQuay their choice, easily building in JetQuay’s service into their passenger name record (PNR) as they make their travel arrangements, now that membership to the CIP Terminal is no longer mandatory. Consequently, more than twenty passengers a day engage JetQuay’s service, in addition to transfers from private jets and members.

According to Merrill Lynch and Capgemini, Singapore's number of millionaires, in terms of U.S. dollars, is rising faster than that of any other Asian country surging 21.2 percent in 2006 to 66,660 millionaires and of those, more than 2,000 individuals earned over $1 million in a single year. JetQuay’s facilities and services are specifically designed to cater to this market and retailers and passengers alike are benefiting from the stature of the terminal.

Retailers are benefiting from the stature of the terminal. Recently, Samsonite black label chose JetQuay to exhibit their Alexander McQueen range of exclusive luggage and accessories "because we felt that we had the right synergy with JetQuay; particularly as we are targeting discerning customers to buy this range. We determined that JetQuay’s CIP Terminal is attracting those select passengers", said David Hoo, Brand Manager of Samonsite Singapore Private Limited

As passengers are unperturbed and have time to browse, they are spending large. Gallery Director, Derek Tse of Hakaren Art Gallery who exhibit their art at JetQuay, reiterated this fact, commenting "JetQuay offers us an alternative avenue for showcasing some of our finest Chinese contemporary artists. It has been a solid partnership and we have had tremendous success in regards to the sales of our art pieces since the terminal opened."

Increasingly, airlines and hoteliers are taking advantage of this trend in transit travel. JAL recently engaged JetQuay to facilitate passage for their premium fliers. JAL’s First Class and highly ranked frequent fliers are now entitled to JetQuay’s services at the CIP terminal.

Four Seasons Hotel, for example, has been using JetQuay’s meet and greet services for their preferred guests for the past few months. Hotels choose to partner with JetQuay becasue their guests appreciate the extra level of service and JetQuay allows the hotel brand to work from the moment a passengers land, until the last moment of departure. An added benefit is that if guests arrive early during a period when we are experiencing high occupancy rates, they may enjoy the CIP terminal’s facilities without being inconvenienced while the hotel prepares their rooms.

JetQuay facilitates more than twenty passengers a day through the terminal, in addition to traffic from private jets and existing members. Those who make enquiries can garner free membership to JetQuay, which affords discounts on a pay-per-use basis, and the affordable fees more than justify the convenience of passage through the terminal. Most travellers who’ve experienced JetQuay’s first rate service won’t fly any other way.
