Life at SATS: 5 Perks of Being a SATS Employee in Singapore

Awarded by Influential Brands as one of Asia’s Top Employers (2024), SATS is truly a global workplace of choice. But apart from the many professional and personal growth opportunities, comprehensive medical benefits, competitive remuneration, and extensive networking prospects within and outside Singapore, there are everyday benefits that come with being employed at SATS.

Here are five of the perks you can look forward to.

1. Awe-inspiring views

If you’re stationed at SATS Inflight Catering Centre 1 (ICC1), SATS headquarters office in Singapore, you’re in for a treat. From this vantage point, you get unobstructed views of one of the world’s best airports.

Need a breather? Just head to Level ICC1 Level 4 Lobby for a peek at the organised chaos of the airport or spot different planes or even a sight of the majestic A380 – trust us, it’s strangely therapeutic.

Employees stationed in other offices within the airport enjoy equally breathtaking views. Anya, our colleague at the ramp, revels in the beauty of witnessing the perfect sunrise from Terminal 4. Shahreel, a ground commander, likewise expresses the joy of having the opportunity to work alongside aeroplanes.

Working at the SATS Singapore office also affords you a front-row seat to the captivating attractions at Changi Airport, such as The Wonderfall in Terminal 2, the Kinetic Rain sculpture in Terminal 1, and the HSBC Rain Vortex in Jewel.

One thing is for sure: Working in SATS will make you appreciate more the wonder of flying and aviation!

2. Staff discounts


Another perk we love? Staff discounts!

SATS employees get exclusive discounts ranging from 10% to 30% on their purchases at airport shops, covering everything from groceries to meals and drinks and even laundry services.

Just flash your airport pass, a badge granted to SATS and other employees at Changi Airport. With your airport pass, you can enjoy more discounts on your duty-free shopping and dining before you hop on your flight.

And even when you’re not travelling, you can still enjoy discounted purchases right at the airport, including shops at Jewel.


But that’s not all – SATS goes the extra mile to treat its employees to discounted hotel accommodations, complimentary zoo passes, and special packages for mobile plans, amongst other perks.

3. Food and shopping

When it comes to food and shopping, SATS employees never run out of options. Whilst SATS has its own staff cafeterias for convenient dining, employees have easy access to a wide range of culinary treats across the terminals.

Terminal 3’s Kopitiam is the best place for those craving local delights (and a kopi or bubble tea fix). For a wallet-friendly yet diverse dining experience, swing by Terminal 1’s Staff Canteen. Or if you’re feeling fancy, treat yourself to the newly opened Swensen’s Unlimited at Terminal 2.

Looking for a quiet ambience and live entertainment? There’s Hub & Spoke, a short stroll from Terminal 2, an ideal spot to unwind and socialise after a long day at work. You may want to schedule your visit from Tuesday to Saturday evenings to catch their live band performances.

For those who crave some retail therapy, there’s always Jewel and its treasure trove of shops and boutiques. Remember to ask about staff discounts, as many shops are happy to extend this perk to SATS employees.

4. Wellness amenities

For those eager to squeeze in a workout before or after your shift, we’ve got you covered with various options.

First up, right at the ICC1 is a complimentary gym facility for all employees. It’s conveniently located at Level 4 and free of charge.

If you’re looking for a more specialised experience, consider checking out The Gym Pod and Flow Pod. These fitness pods offer solo workouts and fitness classes, although do note that they come with a slightly higher price tag.

Another option is the Changi Airport Recreation Club at Terminal 2 Car Park 2B, where you can sign up for membership and enjoy the facilities at discounted rates.

For those seeking a different kind of thrill after work, why not give wall climbing a try at Climb in Terminal 3? It’s a great way to challenge yourself, and you can even bring along a friend or colleague for added fun.

And finally, why not indulge in a well-deserved massage at Natureland in Terminal 3 to melt away the stress of a long week at work?

5. Travel convenience

Perhaps one of the best perks of working at SATS is the convenience of travel you’ll have. You can jet off to your favourite destinations as soon as you finish work.

Just ask our colleague, Sky, who jets off to Kuala Lumpur every month after work like it’s not a big deal. "I usually book a flight departing from Terminal 4 and simply walk over after work to catch my flight,” he shares, luggage in tow.

Gone are the days of frantically catching trains or fretting over traffic jams. With SATS HQ just a stroll away from the airport, or a quick shuttle ride if you prefer, you’ll find yourself at the boarding gates in no time.

There are more perks to being an employee at SATS, but we’ll let you find them out for yourself when you join us!
