Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has published their new list for the Spontaneous Escapes Redemption Specials valid for travel in August 2018 that need to be booked until the end of July 31, 2018.
KrisFlyer is also extending a special 40% redemption discount on Economy Saver to Bangkok, Yangon and Phnom Penh this time as part of an anniversary special.
For the remaining published routes you receive a 30% miles redemption discount to selected destinations across the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir network when you redeem for flights from now till 31 July 2018, for travel from 1 to 31 August 2018 inclusive.
Singapore Airlines has devalued their KrisFlyer Award Chart recently and also eliminated the 15% online booking discount. At the same time they introduced these promotional awards that allow booking of selected routes under a promotional pricing.
You can access the current list of Spontaneous Escapes here.
The following are the Singapore Airlines destinations and pricing for the promotional routes in both classes of service (Economy / Business):
Australia and New Zealand are popular and available in wide variety this month:
This is the first time that the Spontaneous Escapes don’t feature any European destination (Duesseldorf was on there every time) but instead we now see South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
I was a bit disappointed at first when KrisFlyer devalued their award chart and culled the online booking discount but I have to admit that availability for mileage awards using KrisFlyer miles is pretty good and even for First Class and Suites it’s possible to book tickets even for members without any status.
These promotional awards make KrisFlyer somewhat competitive again especially given the very low surcharges on SIA issued award tickets.
