Changi Airport Group (CAG) today launched a refreshed Weekend Escapades mobile app jam-packed with brand new travel tips on 52 destinations within a six-hour flight radius of Singapore, where holiday-makers can now look forward to a different getaway every week. 
The all-in-one, on-the-go app now provides users with even more ideas on holiday destinations with brand new functions that include sharing, bookmarking, rating, searching by interest and easy steps that allow users to plan their trips. Best of all, the enhanced travel app – loaded with 69971982exciting content such as travel information, flight searches and the latest airline promotions all within a few finger-taps – remains free of charge.

Information in Weekend Escapades is provided by popular travel guide book series Insight Guides. Travel tips are presented in a bite-sized format for easy digestion on-the-go. Users can search for ideas on potential travel destinations based on preferred location, personal interests, key events that are taking place or top featured destinations. A ready-to-use itinerary is also offered for each city.

The Weekend Escapades app caters to the needs of time-strapped holiday-makers looking for the ideal weekend getaway or short holiday to break away from the hustle and bustle of routine city life. Apart from popular destinations like Hong Kong, Bangkok and Bali, it provides information on Asian destinations that are off the beaten track, such as Danang, Kalibo, Mandalay and Wuhan, for the more adventurous travellers.

Mr Kelvin Ng, CAG’s Assistant Vice President, Marketing Communications, said: “Following positive feedback from those who have used the app previously, we discovered that holiday-makers are keen to explore new travel destinations and we have designed an enhanced app that offers information on even more unique nearby getaways – one for every weekend of the year.

“The one-stop travel app not only makes holiday planning a breeze by providing users with suggested itineraries, not-to-be-missed attractions and easy booking steps, but also comes with handy phrases and festival guides, making it easy for travellers to explore each destination on-the-go.”.

In conjunction with the launch of the refreshed Weekend Escapades, there will be a weekly ticket-hunt contest – “Win a Weekend Escapade” – where four lucky winners will win a pair of tickets to four different destinations.

Participants simply have to download the Weekend Escapades app and find a luggage icon hidden within the app using clues provided. Those who succeed will be eligible to take part in the weekly draw, with one winner selected each week from 14 July to 10 August 2014.

The Weekend Escapades app can be downloaded for free at both the Apple iTunes and Android app stores. More information on the app can be found in the Annex.
