Travel services company Thomas Cook said it will offer special deals to customers to Sentosa, an island resort in Singapore, following the signing of a three-year strategic agreement with Sentosa Development Corporation
Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) is a statutory board in Singapore, under the purview of the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
Established in 1972, SDC’s main task is to oversee the development, management and promotion of Sentosa island resort.
It also owns the Sentosa Express, a $140 million light rail system that provides easy access into Sentosa from VivoCity, the largest shopping mall in Singapore.
The mini city attracts 19 million tourists annually and includes attractions such as Wings of Time, Madame Tussauds Singapore, Skyline Luge Sentosa, Sentosa 4D AdventureLand, Trick Eye museum, Universal Studios Singapore, and the S.E.A. Aquarium.
India is currently Sentosa’s top source market in terms of visitorship numbers, the company said.
As part of the deal, Thomas Cook will offer exclusive Sentosa packages coupled with exciting promotions and special offers on accommodation.
“Our partnership with Thomas Cook India illustrates SDC’s efforts to engage and bring even more value and fun to our international audiences. With India being Sentosa’s top inbound market for the last three years, we look forward to collaborating with Thomas Cook India to tap on this growth potential and welcome more tourists to Singapore and Sentosa”, said Quek Swee Kuan, Chief Executive Officer, Sentosa Development Corporation.
