Every so often Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program offers promotions on mileage redemptions. Probably the most common promotion is when they offer 50% off SilkAir award flights, which seems to be an annual promotion.
At the moment KrisFlyer is offering 30% off select award redemptions on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. The promotion is valid for bookings made through August 31, 2017, and for flights taken between September 1 and September 30, 2017, which is pretty limiting. The discounted redemption rates should automatically be reflected when doing award searches online.
There are a good number of routes that are eligible, including flights on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, in both economy and business class.
Eligible destinations include the following (however, only specific flights are eligible, so you’ll want to check out the full list):
- Singapore Airlines economy class: Bangkok, Guangzhou, Jakarta, Kolkata, Seoul, and Shanghai
- SilkAir economy class: Bandung, Colombo Palembang, Pekanbaru, Penang, Phuket, Siam Reap, Yangon, and Xiamen
- Singapore Airlines business class: Ahmedabad, Beijing, Brisbane, Brunei, Delhi, Dhaka, Dubai, Guangzhou, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Mumbai, and Shanghai
Keep in mind that while KrisFlyer devalued their award chart in March, they also eliminated carrier imposed surcharges on award tickets, meaning that the above mileage costs will be close to your “all-in cost.” You’ll just have to pay the taxes and fees.
While it’s probably not worth going out of your way to take advantage of this promotion, if you’re planning travel for September between Singapore and one of the eligible destinations, this promotion is most definitely worth being aware of.
Does anyone plan to take advantage of this KrisFlyer 30% off promotion?
