Meet & Greet

General

1. What is Changi Recommends Meet & Greet?

Meet & Greet is a personal concierge service that guides and escorts travellers through the formal security procedures required during Arrival, Departure, and Transit in Changi Airport.

Here’s how to make a booking:

NOTE: For Deluxe Meet & Greet services of more than six guests, please make a booking via email. For Classic Meet & Greet Arrival services of more than five guests, please make a booking via email.

2. Why do I need the Meet & Greet service?

The Meet & Greet service is suitable for anyone who may need help getting around the airport and/or understanding the airport transit procedures. This may include first-time travellers, children, elderly, special needs passengers, businessmen, and/or foreign workers who are not fluent in the local languages.

3. What is the difference between Deluxe and Classic?

The Deluxe Meet & Greet is a VIP service which hires a dedicated concierge for you (and/or your group). The concierge will take you through the necessary airport formalities, and assist you with baggage (up to 4 pieces). Additional services (charges apply) include buggy hire, extra porter services, per-per-use lounge access, airport transfer booking, and flower bouquet gifting. Available for Arrival, Departure, and Transit.

The Classic Meet & Greet is a basic service which includes guidance through the necessary airport procedures. The concierge is non-exclusive, which means that if there are several bookings from guests on the same flight, you will be guided as one group. That said, there is no minimum group size, which means even if there are no other bookings on your flight, we will proceed as usual. There are no porter and add-on services, and this package is only available for Arrival.

4. Does the Meet & Greet service entitle me to skip the queues?

No, there are no express queues within Changi Airport. However, to ensure a smooth and efficient journey, you will be guided and escorted to the respective security checkpoints as required.

NOTE: Due to tight airport security, our staff may not be able to follow you through certain security checkpoints (such as the immigration gates). Rest assured that you will be escorted there and briefed on what you need to do, and the concierge will wait for you at the other end of the checkpoint.

5. Will the concierge assist me with my baggage?

The Deluxe Meet & Greet includes complimentary porter services for up to 4 bags. Should you require assistance with more pieces, please indicate it while booking. Each additional article is chargeable at SGD 12 per piece.

The Classic Meet & Greet service does not include porter services.
