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!
The Regional Business Class product of Singapore Airlines is one that is often talked about - the 1-2-1 cabin configuration offers direct aisle-access for every single seat and the lie-flat seats are definitely comfortable enough for a medium-haul flight. Even though I have experienced this previously on the delivery flight from Charleston to Singapore, I have not actually flown it for leisure. On my latest trip to Bali, I decided to book flight SQ942 which is operated by the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner.
Slightly over a year ago, Singapore Airlines introduced a series of PPS Rewards for their PPS Members (find out what the difference between KrisFlyer Elite Gold and PPS here) and these rewards are basically incentives (think of them as milestone bonuses) for reaching certain levels of spend - double KrisFlyer miles, redemption discounts, as well as one-class cabin upgrades. While these benefits have been exclusive to top-tier members, a brand new selection of KrisFlyer Elite Gold Rewards will become available to KrisFlyer Elite Gold members from 09 October 2018.
In conjunction with Infinite Journeys' second anniversary, Singapore Airlines as well as Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts are offering members double rewards between 04 October 2018 to 31 October 2018. The double rewards only affect point conversions between KrisFlyer Miles and Golden Circle (GC) Points (and vice versa) - all the other benefits (e.g. fast track to KrisFlyer Elite Gold) remain status quo at the time of writing.
Singapore Airlines has just announced Adelaide as the launch destination for their new Airbus A350-900 medium-haul aircraft. The aircraft will be fitted with 303 seats across two cabin class - 40 seats in Business Class and 263 seats in Economy Class - and it will be equipped with the recently launched regional Business Class and Economy Class cabin products. The new A350-900 will operate as SQ279 from Singapore to Adelaide and SQ278 from Adelaide back to Singapore from 17 December 2018 (subject to regulatory approval).
Singapore Airlines is the first airline in Asia-Pacific to offer the added flexibility of saving mobile boarding passes on Google Pay - the digital wallet platform and online payment system developed by Google. Customers (with an Android mobile device) traveling on Singapore Airlines will be able to check-in on their computer or mobile device from 48 hours to 1.5 hours before their flight departs and they will be able to download the boarding pass to their mobile devices if they are departing from selected cities.
Customers departing on eligible Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights will soon be able to pre-order duty-free merchandise up to 60 minutes prior to the scheduled time of flight departure out of Singapore. Effective from 05 September 2018, customers departing Singapore on select SilkAir flights on weekdays between 10:00AM and 4:00PM will be amongst the first to enjoy such an offering.
Launching on 11 October 2018, the world's longest flight will be operated by Singapore Airlines between Singapore and New York (Newark) - the flight time is 18 hours and 45 minutes. Singapore Airlines and Canyon Ranch, the world’s premiere integrative wellness brand, have forged a partnership to re-invent ultra-long-haul travel with a focus on wellness cuisines, rest and relaxation, and general well-being on the world’s longest flights.
There has been some speculation for a while now but Singapore Airlines has just officially launched a new digital wallet and allows you to turn your precious KrisFlyer miles into instant purchases. KrisFlyer members are now able to convert their KrisFlyer miles into KrisPay miles to use them on everyday expenses like petrol, food, gadgets or phone bills just to name a few.
You know the drill - KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes is back for members planning to travel in the month of August 2018.

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.
