Singapore Airlines Offering 50% Discount on Required Miles Between Selected Destinations

by John Ollila on April 20, 2012

Singapore Airlines must be hurting because they just started to give out Kris Flyer miles for even the most discounted fares on both their own metal and on Silk Air. Now, they have an award sale between selected city pairs for 50% fewer miles. The discount in reality is only 35% as you would get 15% discount booking an award online in the first place. You can redeem for these discounted award tickets from April 19th to May 2nd for travel between April 19 and June 16th.

Singapore Airlines listed the destinations where these discounted awards are valid. They didn’t, however, list the number of required miles or taxes/fees/fuel surcharges. I just went through all the destinations to find out the usual number of miles, the discounted miles amount, and the approximate fees associated with the award.

I apologize for my terrible handwriting. The first number is the usual saver mileage requirement, the next one is the number of miles required during this sale, and the third one the taxes/fees.

What mainly caught my eye, was the Barcelona to Sao Paulo in economy for 10250 SQ miles OW and about $194.68 in taxes/fees. Trips to Brazil tend to be relatively expensive, but this is a great deal. Even better if you but the return portion of the award separately as there are no fuel surcharges on tickets issued/originating from Brazil.
