Singtel partners Airtel to offer lowest voice call rates to India


Singtel has just launched a-first-of-its-kind partnership with Airtel that enables Singtel prepaid mobile customers with smartphones to make high-quality calls to India via the Airtel Talk app.

Previously only accessible to credit card holders, Airtel Talk can be used by Singtel prepaid mobile customers who purchase hi!India Plans with their prepaid credits. The hi!India Plans offer the lowest voice call rates to fixed lines and mobile phones in India – from SGD 5 for 100 minutes (SGD 0.05/min) to SGD 12 for 300 minutes (SGD 0.04/min), with no extra costs involved. The plans are valid for a period of 30 days and all data charges are waived when customers connect to Airtel Talk on a 3G or 4G connection.

With the Airtel Talk app, Singtel prepaid mobile customers can make convenient and affordable voice calls to landline or mobile numbers in India; without the hassle associated with calling cards and credit card requirements. Customers can download the Airtel Talk app at the Apple App Store and Google Play store.

SIA Light Up The Night Carnival returns as a two-day event


The SIA Light Up The Night Carnival will return as a two-day event from 22 to 23 August 2015, leading up to this year’s FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE AIRLINES SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX. The Carnival will also be held in conjunction with race promoter, Singapore Grand Prix’s (GP) ‘Rev Up Singapore!’ campaign.


Motorsports enthusiasts can look forward to exhilarating stunt displays or try their hand at changing a Formula 1 race car tyre at Singapore GP’s Pit Stop Challenge. Be sure not to miss a convoy of 40 supercars going around town on the first day of the Carnival as well.

This year’s Carnival highlights include the SIA Paper Plane Challenge, where visitors can watch finalists engage in a fly-off against each other to win the titles of “Greatest Distance” and “Fastest Plane”. Visitors can also fold their own paper planes and join in the fun!

Family-friendly activities are also offered at the Carnival and include free movie screenings, a larger than life Planes and Runways board game, Wii console games, remote control cars, face painting, and photo opportunities with Madame Tussauds Singapore wax figures of Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

Singapore GP’s ‘Rev Up Singapore!’ initiatives will also offer some fan-friendly activities for members of the public. These activities includes go-kart racing on the Marina Bay Street Circuit at a nominal fee of SGD 5 (proceeds will go to the Community Chest), clocking in the best lap time on Singapore GP simulators, and participating in a Formula 1-themed art showcase.

Another initiative to look out for would be the Fit for Racing Challenge happening on 22 August. Participants will get to compete in specific workouts that simulate the training regime of Formula 1 drivers. Registration for the challenge is free and can be done here. Alternatively, members of the public can always try out the interactive Fit For Racing stations available on 23 August.

Formula 1 fans can purchase Formula 1 race merchandise as well as tickets to the 2015 FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE AIRLINES SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX at prices only available at the Carnival. The Carnival is open to all members of the public and will be held at the F1 Pit Building along Republic Boulevard from 1pm to 9pm.

Air New Zealand features the All Blacks in new on board safety video

Men in Black Safety Defenders

Air New Zealand has teamed up with the All Blacks and an all-star line-up of international rugby greats to produce the airline’s latest on board safety video, Men in Black Safety Defenders.

Inspired by the Men in Black movies, Air New Zealand’s latest safety installment features All Black’s Captain Richie McCaw and Dan Carter as Men in Black agents. American actor Rip Torn reprises his role as Chief of the Men in Black with Wallabies great David Campese, former England Captain Martin Johnson and former Argentinean Captain Agustin Pichot making cameo appearances.

According to Air New Zealand Head of Global Brand Development Jodi Williams, while the airline has been working with the All Blacks for previous safety videos, they thought it would be fun to have them take the role of the highly trained Men in Black this time. This makes it not only entertaining, but also makes people sit up and pay attention to the key safety messages.

Men in Black Safety Defenders will be rolled out across Air New Zealand’s fleet and can be viewed online here.

Air New Zealand’s Singapore Facebook fans can also stand a chance to win exclusive All Blacks themed prizes. Simply listen to the rap in the #AirNZSafetyVideo and quote any of the safety messages from Agents I or S in the comment section of the contest page here.
