Singapore KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes Award Sale

Singapore KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes Award Sale

6

Singapore Airlines offers its KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes promo, whereby you can get significant savings on award tickets in select regions. This is a fantastic opportunity to save on award flights on one of the world’s best airlines.

There are several opportunities to save miles on tickets in economy, premium economy, and business class. The list this month is pretty good, including some premium cabin options to the United States, so let’s take a look at the details.

Book discounted Singapore Airlines awards

Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program offers monthly “Spontaneous Escapes” deals, where there’s a list of flights that can be booked at a discount when redeeming miles.

Presumably Singapore Airlines is primarily discounting flights that aren’t anticipated to be full, and where there’s a lot of award availability. This can be a really useful promotion. One major restriction to note is that Spontaneous Escapes awards can’t be changed or canceled once booked (they don’t follow standard KrisFlyer policies), so you’ll only want to ticket these if you’re positive you’re traveling.

KrisFlyer has just published its latest Spontaneous Escapes list, which has a good number of destinations on it, all for travel on Singapore Airlines. This is valid for bookings through May 31, 2024, and for travel between June 1 and June 30, 2024.

I’d recommend checking out the full list, but just to give you a sense of some of the discounted awards that are available (pricing is one-way):

  • Singapore to Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Medan, Penang, and Surabaya, is available for 14,700 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Cebu, Ho Chi Minh City, and Manila, is available for 16,800 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Chengdu and Xiamen is available for 23,800 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Colombo, Delhi, Dhaka, Hyderabad, Male, and Mumbai, is available for 30,100 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Cairns is available for 47,950 miles in business class
  • Frankfurt to New York is available for 56,700 miles in business class
  • Frankfurt to New York is available for 36,400 miles in premium economy

The restrictions for taking advantage of the offers vary by destination. Some destinations are restricted to specific flight numbers, and others are restricted to specific dates, but there’s great value to be had across the board.

Singapore Airlines makes most premium cabin award space available exclusively to members of its own KrisFlyer program, so many of these are flights that you couldn’t book with partner airline miles. However, some partners, including Air Canada Aeroplan, do increasingly have access to some long haul Singapore Airlines premium award space.

Bottom line

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has published its latest Spontaneous Escapes promotion. With this new list, you can save on business class, premium economy, and economy award redemptions. There are some good deals to be had, including for both business class and premium economy travel to the United States.

Are there any KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes awards that you plan to take advantage of?

    I was looking for alternatives to Miles and More and I almost fell for a KrisFlyer promotion. Then I thoroughly checked the conditions - inevitable expiration after three years, huge amount of miles needed (talking about business class only), scarcity of available options from Europe, and (sigh) will still rely on Miles and More for the time being...

    Im looking to use points in June from Australia to Europe and there is NOTHING available on sg. On any combination I search it’s all waitlist advantage space only.

    Krisflyer used to be great but for me is almost redundant now. Unless you want to go 330 days out or whatever

      Unfortunately June is a peak period due to the school holidays.

  3. Clarice Guest

    Why would anyone use points to book premium economy?

      Agree. Anything less than business does not make sense if one wants to get some value for miles.

    Ewww. Can't cancel or changed once booked. Not going to work. Those points are gone.
