When Singapore Airlines ran a 50% off flight redemption promotion last year, we all thought it was crazy. Still with that being said, it was Singapore's Golden Jubilee year last year and the whole SG50 pride was in full swing. I managed to chance upon the following promotion this evening as I was browsing the internet - 30% off Online Flight Redemptions on Singapore Airlines!
Before you get super excited, travel needs to happen between 15 February 2016 to 26 May 2016 and reservation has to be made between now and 14 February 2016. See below for a snapshot of prices (in required KrisFlyer Miles) but definitely check out the main site for more information!
You know the drill - KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes is back for members planning to travel in the month of August 2018. To celebrate its first birthday, KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes is extending a special 40% redemption discount (instead of the usual 30%) on Economy Saver to Bangkok, Yangon and Phnom Penh next month! If you have alternative travel plans, you will still be able to enjoy 30% miles redemption discount to selected destinations from now until 31 July 2018, for travel between 1-31 August 2018 inclusive.
With the first A350-900ULR due for delivery in September, Singapore Airlines has just officially announced the operation of non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles from November this year. The flag carrier airline of Singapore has already announced the recommencement of the world's longest flight from Singapore to New York two months ago and together with this newly-announced service, Singapore Airlines will link Singapore and the US with 27 weekly non-stop flights by the end of 2018.
Starting from 01 July 2018, Business Class passengers on selected Singapore Airlines flights between Singapore and Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong can look forward to a new in-flight Chinese dining concept. The new three-course menus, known as Shi Quan Wei Mei (食全味美) are built upon the highly-acclaimed Shi Quan Shi Mei (十全食美) menus that are already available to Suites and First Class passengers on selected flights between Singapore and China.
You should know the drill by now - 30% off required KrisFlyer Miles to selected destinations on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir in July 2018 with the latest episode of Spontaneous Escapes. There may not be any public holidays in July but if you are thinking about a weekend escape, you will be able to travel in style (and by style I mean Business Class) from just 12,250 KrisFlyer Miles each way.
One of the many perks with traveling on Business Class is the airport lounge access that you get before your flight - some of these are impressive like The Private Room in Changi Airport (when you fly First Class or Suites with Singapore Airlines) or the Cathay Pacific Lounge in Haneda Airport. On the other hand, some airport lounges are disappointing and lacklustre - the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is one such example.
The American Express and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer suite of co-branded credit cards launched back in 2016 but it was fairly unimpressive to earn its spot in my wallet (click HERE to check out which credit cards I physically hold in my wallet). While I was booking a flight this morning, I realised that there is currently a tender exercise for Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Co-brand & Corporate Co-brand Credit Cards. The closing date for this tender is 22 June 2018 and according to the request for proposal, 'the targeted launch date of the new products is in early 2019'.
Singapore Airlines has just officially announced Bali as the next scheduled destination to be served by Singapore Airlines’ new Boeing 787-10 fleet, with services to begin on 2 July 2018. The Boeing 787-10s will initially operate SQ942 and SQ943 daily.
After much speculation in recent months, Singapore Airlines has officially announced that it will be launching the world's longest commercial flight with non-stop services between Singapore and New York (EWR) on the new Airbus A350-900ULR. Flights are scheduled to be launched on 11 October and the route will initially be served three times a week, departing Singapore on Monday, Thursday and Sunday.
I will be flying to Bali again in September and when I logged in to my KrisFlyer account today to select my seats (even though I have already booked this flight a long time ago), I realised that the seat map in Business Class has now been replaced with a 1-2-1 configuration (as opposed to a 2-2-2 one that I have previously taken). Since Singapore Airlines is planning to replace the older A330-300s with the new 787-10 Dreamliners, this can only mean one thing (I think!) - my flight in September is going to be on the brand new Regional Business Class product!
The regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir is set to undergo a significant investment program where the cabin products will be upgraded as part of a multi-year initiative before finally being merged into Singapore Airlines. SilkAir unveiled their brand new 737 MAX 8s last year and even though it currently operates a fleet Airbus and Boeing aircraft, it is transitioning to an all-737 fleet.
