In the past we’ve seen Singapore KrisFlyer offer some discounts on award flights, where you could receive 30-50% off flights to select destinations. Well, Singapore is back with a similar promotion once again, and this time it’s being branded as “KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes.” This almost seems very similar to Air France-KLM’s monthly Promo Awards, so here’s to hoping this is an ongoing offer.
Through this promotion you can receive 30% off select award redemptions on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. The promotion is valid for bookings made through November 30, 2017, and for flights taken between December 1 and December 30, 2017 (though some destinations have blackout dates). The discounted redemption rates should automatically be reflected when doing award searches online.
There are a good number of routes that are eligible, including flights on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, in both economy and business class.
Eligible destinations include the following (however, only specific flights are eligible, so you’ll want to check out the full list):
- Economy class: Bandung, Chengdu, Da Nang, Denpasar, Lombok, Manado, Mandalay, Pekanbaru, Wuhan, Yangon
- Business class: Dhaka, Dusseldorf, Ho Chi Minh City, Manila, Yangon
59,500 KrisFlyer miles with no fuel surcharges for business class between Singapore and Dusseldorf? Deal!
Keep in mind that while KrisFlyer devalued their award chart in March, they also eliminated carrier imposed surcharges on award tickets, meaning that the above mileage costs will be close to your “all-in cost.” You’ll just have to pay the taxes and fees.
While it’s probably not worth going out of your way to take advantage of this promotion, if you’re planning travel for December between Singapore and one of the eligible destinations, this promotion is most definitely worth being aware of.
If you don’t have KrisFlyer miles, keep in mind that the program is transfer partners with all four major transferable points currencies, including Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and Starwood Preferred Guest.
Does anyone plan to take advantage of this KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes promotion?
