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. This month’s list doesn’t quite hit the dizzy heights of what we saw in January, but it is still very good and well worth checking out.
The current offer is for selected Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights booked by 29th February 2020. Choose from any of the flights listed here and travel between 1st-31st March 2020 (though watch out for ‘blackout dates’ on some routes).
Here are just some of the Business Class highlights:
- Barcelona: 64,400 miles
- Dusseldorf: 64,400 miles
- Zurich: 64,400 miles
- Rome: 64,400 miles
Middle East / Africa
- Dubai: 34,300 miles
- Johannesburg: 34,300 miles (that is just short of 11 hours flying!)
- San Francisco: 66,500 miles
- Adelaide: 43,400 miles
- Brisbane: 43,400 miles
- Canberra: 43,400 miles
- Sydney: 43,400 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.
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.
Transfers from Amex to KrisFlyer are usually completed within 24 hours, but can take up to 3 working days.
