Singapore Airlines and Grab have partnered on their mobile platforms and loyalty points.
The companies integrated their mobile apps, allowing customers to book Grab rides via the Singapore Air mobile app for trips to the airport. This will be available in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Singapore Airlines’ mobile app users can book a Grab ride to the airport seven days before their scheduled flight.
Meanwhile, members of GrabRewards may convert their points into Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer miles.
Grab plans to raise as much as $2.5 billion to bolster its war chest, as it looks to tap China’s Didi Chuxing (DiDi), the world’s leading one-stop mobile transportation platform, and Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp. to raise up to $2 billion. It said another $500 million would be raised from other investors.
This was considered the largest single financing in the history of Southeast Asia.
