Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program offers monthly “Spontaneous Escapes” deals, where they constantly have a list of flights that can be booked at a discount when redeeming miles.
Presumably they’re primarily discounting flights that they don’t anticipate being full, and where there’s a lot of award availability. This can be a really useful promotion.
KrisFlyer has just published their latest Spontaneous Escapes list, which has dozens of destinations on it, between the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir route networks.
This is valid for bookings through May 31, 2019, and for travel between June 1 and June 30, 2019.
This actually seems to be a really good list, as we see discounts on routes to five continents, which is more than usual.
For example, you can save 30% on KrisFlyer business class awards from Hong Kong to San Francisco, bringing the cost down to 62,300 miles one-way.
Or you can save 30% on many KrisFlyer business class awards to Australia, including their Singapore to Melbourne route, bringing the cost down to 43,400 miles one-way.
Or you can save 30% on KrisFlyer business class awards from Singapore to Johannesburg, bringing the cost down to an incredible 34,300 miles one-way.
There really are way more available city pairs than we’ve seen in the past, including a lot more intercontinental options.
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.
With the new list, there are discounted awards in business class, premium economy, and economy. The discounts vary by route, and in some cases offer up to 50% off.
Singapore Airlines business class
If you’re interested in booking one of these flights but don’t have KrisFlyer miles, the good news is that KrisFlyer is transfer partners with Amex Membership Rewards, Capital One, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Citi ThankYou, so there are lots of easy ways to earn points that can be redeemed for these flights.
Singapore Airlines makes much premium cabin award space available exclusively to members of their own KrisFlyer program, so many of these are flights that you couldn’t book with partner airline miles.
Are there any KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes awards that you plan to take advantage of?
