We’ve written a few times now about Singapore Airlines’ excellent ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ promotion. Essentially, it’s a time limited promo each month that knocks 30%-50% off the number of Miles required for a variety of different routes.
It’s very similar to other award discounts like Flying Blue Promo Awards and ‘Miles and More’ Mileage Bargains. The current offer is for selected Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flights on singaporeair.com, from now until 31st May 2018. Choose from any of the flights listed here and travel between 1st-30th June 2018 (with some blackout dates depending on the route).
What’s available this time?
There are quite a few good options, like Business Class between Singapore and Hong Kong for 19,250 KrisFlyer Miles each way (and the chance to try Singapore’s newest Business Class product!), or Male (Maldives) and Colombo (Sri Lanka) to Singapore for 24,500 Miles.
Business Class between Dubai and Singapore for 31,500 Miles is a bargain too! For most readers though, it’s the discounted Business Class Dusseldorf – Singapore route that will be of most interest:
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.
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:
The discount only shows up when you select a flight:
As you can see, following the changes Krisflyer made earlier this year, there are no longer any ‘surcharges’ when redeeming KrisFlyer Miles on Singapore or SilkAir flights, so the taxes/fees are very reasonable.
How to get KrisFlyer Miles
By far the easiest and best value way to accumulate KrisFlyer Miles in the UK is to transfer over American Express Membership Rewards Points at 1:1 rate. Note that KrisFlyer Miles expire after 3 years regardless of account activity, so do bear that in mind when considering whether to start collecting them.
I’m a big fan of Singapore’s Spontaneous Escapes promo. The rates are very competitive, there aren’t any surcharges and Singapore Airlines offers a great product in both Economy and Business Class.
