CHALLENGE THEME 1 - FUTURE OF IN-FLIGHT GAMING
How might we create a unique gaming experience in-flight? Singapore Airlines already has a competitive Inflight Entertainment & Connectivity system, where passengers can choose more than 1800 on-demand entertainment options. We are always exploring new ideas and solutions that enable Singapore Airlines to engage gaming enthusiasts and casual game players. 
Your digitally driven ideas may cover one or all the focus areas:

  • Enhancing the in-flight gaming experience 
  • Engaging gaming enthusiasts and casual game players
  • Generating revenues via gamification or gaming 

We welcome other great ideas related to this topic too!

CHALLENGE THEME 2 - FUTURE OF WORK
How might we enable our workforce to be engaged, collaborative and productive in a hybrid/remote work arrangement while safeguarding health and safety? While hybrid/remote work arrangement has become the norm, work performance measurements, mental wellbeing and social isolation are a matter of concern. The lack of impromptu conversations may also lead to fewer innovative ideas.
Your digitally driven ideas may cover one or all the focus areas:

  • Improving staff cohesiveness
  • Driving collaboration
  • Setting up effective measurements of productivity

We welcome other great ideas related to this topic too!

CHALLENGE THEME 3 - FUTURE OF ON-GROUND TRAVEL EXPERIENCE How might we enhance customers’ experience during the actual tours booked via the Pelago platform?

Your digitally driven ideas may cover one or all the focus areas:

  • Extending the Pelago platform experience beyond just booking activities
