We regularly cover Singapore Airlines’ monthly ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ promotions. Essentially, these are time limited promos that knock big chunks off the number of miles required for a variety of Singapore Airlines award redemptions, which can lead to some fantastic bargains!
The current offer is for selected Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights booked by 31st May 2019. Choose from any of the flights listed here and travel between 1st-30th June 2019 (though watch out for ‘blackout dates’ on some routes).
This list is pretty good overall this time, despite there being only 1 European option – Manchester to Houston in Economy for 24,150 miles:
To find the discounted rates, just log into 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.
There are no ‘surcharges’ when redeeming KrisFlyer Miles on Singapore or SilkAir flights, so the taxes/fees are relatively reasonable.
As usual, there’s a full range of good value redemption options within Asia on the Spontaneous Escapes list, and Business Class from Hong Kong to San Francisco for 62,300 KrisFlyer Miles might well appeal to some readers too.
Other highlights include Business Class flights between Johannesburg and Singapore for (a remarkable) 34,300 miles each way – that’s a 10.5 hour flight! There’s also a good handful of options in Australia and NZ to/from Singapore for 43,400 miles each way.
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 a 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.
