We’ve written a few times before about Singapore Airlines’ excellent monthly ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ promotions. Essentially, these are time limited promos that knock 30%-50% off the number of Miles required for a variety of Singapore Airlines award redemptions, which can lead to some fantastic Business Class (and Economy) bargains!
The current offer is for selected Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights booked by 30th November 2018. Choose from any of the flights listed here and travel between 1st-31st December (or 1st-31st January 2019 for the USA routes).
It’s a relatively meagre list this time, but flights from Singapore to Sydney or Melbourne for 40,600 one way in Business Class look like a decent deal:
Some readers might also be interested in the good value Premium Economy options between Singapore and the USA in January:
There’s also a variety of discounted regional destinations available, both on Singapore Airlines and its regional subsidiary SilkAir.
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 below, following the changes Krisflyer made last 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.
