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!
Singapore Airlines has just announced the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes redemption specials for November 2017 travels. KrisFlyer members will be able to enjoy 30% discount on KrisFlyer Miles required on selected Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flight that is done online - bookings must be made before the end of 31 October 2017 for travel between 01 November 2017 and 30 November 2017 (inclusive).
Like most miles that you can accrue on an airline, KrisFlyer Miles are best used for Business Class flights and above - it allows you to travel on an aspiration-class of service that you may not necessarily want to pay for. For example, flying on Suites is extremely attainable with careful planning and spending (charging your expenses carefully is not the same as being frugal - it is about using the right credit card!).
Singapore Airlines and Grab has just announced a partnership that will provide customers with a more seamless travel experience moving forward. The mobile applications of both companies will feature integrated components to allow customers traveling to the airport in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam to book a Grab ride easily. More importantly, users will also be able to redeem their GrabRewards Reward Points for KrisFlyer Miles!
Everyone remembers their very first First Class experience (especially so if you were traveling in Suites) - I remember mine very vividly when I flew from Singapore to Auckland (even though I only wrote about it on the Auckland to Singapore segment) after taking a Business Class flight from Hong Kong to Singapore a couple of hours before that. Apart from the amazing cabin experience as well as the customary visit to The Private Room which is located inside the SilverKris Lounge in Terminal 3 of the Changi Airport, one can also look forward to a more extensive (and in many cases, expensive) selection with 'Book the Cook' (BTC) menu.
Singapore Airlines will be extending the Book the Cook service for all eligible flights exiting Brisbane and Perth on or after 01 October 2017 - orders can be made online from 25 September 2017. While passengers traveling in premium cabins from Sydney and Melbourne in Australia have already been able to take advantage of this service since a while ago, it is definitely interesting to see how Singapore Airlines is starting to develop the BNE and PER routes with more premium offerings - it will also be operating flights on the Airbus A350-900 to and from Brisbane in coming months.
According to the latest report by the Australian Business Traveller, Singapore Airlines will be unveiling the brand new Suites and Business Class product (which is expected to be retrofitted to most of Singapore Airlines' existing A380 fleet) on 02 November 2017. These products are due for a refresh after being in operation for over 10 years and it will be exciting to see how it contrasts with the existing Suites and Business Class seats.
Everyone knows that Alaska Airlines' frequent flyer program (FFP) is one of my favourites at the moment since it allows you to travel on Business Class for cheap. There is currently an opportunity to purchase Mileage Plan miles and get up to 50% more miles. If your account is targeted with the maximum 50% bonus (most new accounts get 35% which is still an amazing deal), you can essentially redeem the miles for two Business Class flights on Japan Airlines for under S$700. Singapore Airlines and Alaska Airlines have just announced a brand new partnership which will allow for reciprocal mileage earning from 27 September 2017 - redemption will soon follow.
A brand new codeshare agreement between Singapore Airlines and the Latin-America carrier Avianca that is set to go live in September 2017 will see wider connections to Bogotá, Colombia, Avianca ́s major hub location.
Singapore Airlines is currently running 30% off KrisFlyer Miles redemption on selected routes for travel between 01 September 2017 and 30 September 2017 (both dates inclusive) when you redeem for an eligible flight before 31 August 2017. While the deal is not as lucrative as the 50% off required miles promotion that was running a couple of months before, the current one includes redemption on Singapore Airlines (as opposed to just SilkAir) as well.
When Singapore Airlines first unveiled the 70th Anniversary Amenity Kit back in May 2017 (but only started handing them out from July 2017), it took frequent flyers by surprise - known for providing amenity kits only in First Class and Suites Class, Singapore Airlines announced that it will be giving out limited edition amenity kits for all Business, First Class and Suites Class flights exiting Singapore (with the exception of Kuala Lumpur). Passengers in First Class and Suites Class who are eligible for the far more impressive Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kits will receive both the Salvatore Ferragamo branded one as well as the special anniversary amenity kit.
