You Can Now Earn and Redeem KrisFlyer Miles on Scoot!

Scoot has finally teamed up with KrisFlyer to allow all members to earn and redeem KrisFlyer miles on all eligible Scoot flights. Depending on the itinerary of your flight, mileage accrual could be in the form of actual dollar spend or based on fare class and distance travelled. Redeeming KrisFlyer miles on Scoot is only possible via Miles and Cash payment or via Scoot Vouchers (which will be made available until 25 May 2018 only).

If you are booking a Scoot flight on FlyScoot.com directly, you will earn 1 KrisFlyer mile per SGD 1 spent on the base fare as well as add-ons - do note that e-Visa, travel insurance and Scoot Protect are excluded. Taxes, infants, credit card processing fees and amounts offset using Scoot vouchers are not eligible for miles accrual. If you are flying Scoot as part of a mixed itinerary, mileage accrual would be awarded based on the fare class of your ticket as well as the actual mileage flown for the Scoot sector. For the other sectors operated by Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, mileage accrual is based on the existing rules - you may wish to check out this calculator. Mileage accrual on Virgin Australia is eligible for the Virgin Australia sector through a retro miles claim process.

There is no award chart for redemption on Scoot - what you will be able to do instead is to either exchange KrisFlyer miles for Scoot Vouchers (which will be made available until 25 May 2018 only) or mix miles and cash on an upcoming booking. You will be able to 'redeem' your miles for your redemption nominees (the same ones in your KrisFlyer account) so make sure you add them into your booking. While I do not personally fly on Scoot, this is a welcome change for budget travellers as they will now be able to accrue KrisFlyer miles (albeit at a really low rate) even on discounted flights.
