Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer just keeps giving with its Spontaneous Escapes promotion. This most recent update means significant discounts on redemptions for travel in October.
Notable additions include 30% off redemptions between Manchester, U.K. (MAN) and Houston (IAH) in economy from just 17,500 miles one-way!
Let’s take a look at which routes are available and how to book them before it’s too late.
The latest extension of the Spontaneous Escapes promotion applies to travel from October 1 to 31, 2023, and tickets must be booked by the end of the day on September 30, 2023. Note that this is a “while supplies last” type of promo, so there’s a chance availability is snapped up before the end of the promotion period.
With travel dates limited to the month of October, the travel window is restrictive. However, for some solid discounts, they’re still worth considering for a last-minute getaway.
The discounts apply to some economy, premium economy, and business class seats, with the notable exception of first class and Singapore Airlines’ beloved Suites product.
Singapore details dozens of routes where the 30% off applies. However, don’t forget that flying with Singapore Airlines is arguably one of the best ways to fly from Europe to the U.S.
There is still a considerable list of routes on sale if you’re flying within Asia. Note that for some of the routes, the discounts are only available in one direction. Finally, all KrisFlyer miles required are on a one-way basis.
Let’s take a look at the deals to/from the U.S.:
|Route||Class||Discounted Amount||Usual Amount|
|Houston (IAH) to Manchester (MAN)||Economy||17,500||25,000|
|Manchester (MAN) to Houston (IAH)||Economy||17,500||25,000|
|Singapore (SIN) to Los Angeles (LAX)||Economy||29,400||42,000|
|Singapore (SIN) to New York (JFK)||Premium Economy||56,350||80,500|
|Singapore (SIN) to San Francisco (SFO)||Economy||29,400||43,000|
|Singapore (SIN) to San Francisco (SFO)||Premium Economy||52,500||75,000|
These flights are all on the Airbus A350-900, and there are no blackout dates.
These same one-way flights would cost you about $1,100 in premium economy. If you’re able to take advantage of this promotion, you’d be getting an excellent redemption rate — roughly 3 cents apiece!
Even if your balance is zero, it’s relatively easy to earn KrisFlyer miles, as the program is a partner of many transferable rewards currencies, including Amex Membership Rewards, Brex Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Capital One Miles, Citi ThankYou Rewards, and Marriott Bonvoy.Hot Tip:
