I’ve written a couple of times already about the new monthly discounted Singapore Airlines redemptions promo, ‘Spontaneous Escapes’, as the deals on offer tend to be very good and this month’s options are even better than we’ve seen before!
The latest batch are for travel between 1st-31st January 2018 and have to be booked by 31st December 2017. There are a large range of Economy and Business Class routes available this time with the standard 30% discount, as well as a few departing from selected Australian cities that are discounted by 40%!
From a UK perspective, the obvious highlights are the four European routes between Singapore and Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Dusseldorf, all available for 59,500 KrisFlyer Miles in Business Class one way. You usually need 85,000 Miles, so that’s a chunky reduction.
59,500 KrisFlyer Miles (with no surcharges!) for a ~13 hour flight in one of the best Business Class cabins in the sky is a great deal.
This time, there is also a 30% reduction for Economy redemptions on the Paris and Dusseldorf routes too – now requiring just 26,600 Miles one way to/from Singapore.
Remember that there are no ‘surcharges’ anymore when redeeming KrisFlyer Miles for Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flights, so the only extra you’ll have to pay is a small amount of tax and mandatory airport fees.
To find the discounted rates, just login to your your KrisFlyer account and search for award flights like normal. You’ll actually see the standard pricing to begin with when searching, but don’t let that put you off. The discount only shows up when you select a flight:
There is also some excellent value available between Singapore and lots of other places too, which you can check out here. Business Class between Singapore and the Maldives, for example, is just 24,500 KrisFlyer Miles, or 12,950 in Economy.
A new addition this month is 40% off awards from some Australian cities to Singapore (note that these only work going in one direction, unlike the other reductions).
There are quite a few options available, including from Sydney for 16,800 or 34,800 Miles for Economy or Business Class, respectively.
It’s great to see this sort of innovation from KrisFlyer and I hope it continues for a long time! 30-40% off KrisFlyer awards makes them very tempting indeed now that the surcharges are gone too.
