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!
Now that we have gotten over the fact that UOB and Singapore Airlines have launched a brand new co-branded credit card (which you should definitely apply if you do not mind getting your bonus miles next year), Singapore Airlines has just unveiled a brand new website which enables passengers to look for the cheapest fares easily if their travel dates are flexible.
Singapore Airlines and UOB have just announced a brand new credit card which offers an attractive earn rate of 3 KrisFlyer miles per dollar on Singapore Airlines (including SilkAir and Scoot) expenses, online shopping, transport and most importantly, dining. The brand new KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card is now available for application online and you can do it very quickly (takes just a minute!) if you have internet banking set up with UOB.
When I wrote about the changes to the International Airline Programme for American Express Platinum Members earlier today, I did not expect the savings to be drastic. If you have not seen that article, Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways have essentially joined the IAP and American Express Centurion as well as Platinum Members now have access to discounted Business Class and First Class fares (that is not publicly available).
Singapore Airlines and Garuda Indonesia have just announced an expanded codeshare agreement between the two carriers - flights on SQ and GA will be codesharing between Singapore and the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta. With this new agreement, there will be nine flights per day on the aforementioned route and this offers travellers more flexibility and options when it comes to flight timings.
Singapore Airlines offered Business Class, First Class and Suites passengers the option to get confirmed meal choices (that are not part of Book the Cook) up to 24 hours prior to the flight's scheduled time of departure. Today, the flag carrier airline of Singapore has announced at the World Gourmet Forum that it will be the first airline to enable Premium Economy Class passengers to pre-order main courses from its in-flight menu from anywhere in the airline's global network from 01 May 2019.
Singapore Airlines and wellness brand COMO Shambhala (which forms part of the COMO Group) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on a wide-ranging partnership aimed at enhancing the customer experience for travellers.

KrisPay, a digital wallet launched July last year by Singapore Airlines will now allow you to convert your KrisPay Miles into KrisFlyer Miles within 7 days of accrual at participating KrisPay partner outlets islandwide. You may remember that KrisPay used to only allow members to convert their precious KrisFlyer miles into KrisPay miles at a ridiculous rate.
In collaboration with Singapore Airlines, American Express will be offering a limited-time promotion for all existing and new cardholders of the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card to obtain KrisFlyer Elite Gold membership tier by spending S$12,000 (out of which, only S$3,000 must be spent at SingaporeAir.com or on the SingaporeAir mobile app) between 01 March 2019 to 01 June 2019.

For non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles between 01 March 2019 and 30 April 2019, Premium Economy Class seats can be redeemed at Economy Class Saver rates.
Back in May 2018, SilkAir announced that it will receive cabin product upgrades before being merged into Singapore Airlines eventually.
