Singapore Airlines to Increase Required KrisFlyer Miles for Star Alliance Award Tickets - 7 December 2017

Singapore Airlines will soon allow KrisFlyer members to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for award tickets on Star Alliance and other partners on or via their mobile applicable from 07 December 2017. More importantly, there will be an increase in required KrisFlyer Miles for some Star Alliance Award Tickets (Business and First Class only) from the very same day.

When looking at Singapore (South East Asia 1) as the port of origin only, the number of required KrisFlyer miles for an award ticket redemption in Economy Class will remain the same for all Star Alliance partners. However, certain changes will be made for a handful of award flights in the Business and First Class cabin (where it truly matters!).
