Changi Airport public area retail stores continue to absorb GST hike in 2024 to help shoppers save more

Participating retail shops in the public areas of Changi Airport’s four terminals[1] will continue to absorb the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in the new year, even as it increases from 8% to 9% come 1 January 2024.

To enjoy the GST savings, shoppers simply need to sign up for the free Changi Rewards loyalty programme.

For nine days in January[2], under the “2XGST” promotion, shoppers will also get an additional 9% off their purchases with a minimum nett value of S$30 after deducting all other discounts.

In addition, customers who spend a minimum of S$60 and pay using Mastercard via Changi’s digital wallet Changi Pay will receive a S$9 Changi Pay return voucher credited to their account. Please refer to Annex A for details and the list of participating outlets.

Ms Phau Hui Hoon, Changi Airport Group’s Vice President for Landside Concessions, said, “We have been working with tenants to absorb GST for retail spend in the stores of our public areas for the past 15 years since 2009 and are glad that this partnership has continued till today.

“Coupled with the ‘2XGST’ promotion in January, we hope to not only bring our tenants more sales, but also treat shoppers to a little reprieve from the GST hike and spread some cheer ahead of the upcoming festive season.”

[1] GST absorption does not extend to Jewel Changi Airport, restaurants, and non-participating stores such as supermarkets.

[2] The 2XGST promotion period is from 12 to 14 January, 19 to 21 January, and 26 to 28 January 2024.
