Singapore Airlines has just released its latest KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes promotion for discounted award bookings on select Singapore Airlines flights worldwide. Book using KrisFlyer miles until September 30, 2023 to score a 30% discount for travel on select flights from October 1–31, 2023.
This time around, there are deals in economy, premium economy, and business class to a number of destinations throughout its Asian and South Pacific network, as well as opportunities to fly premium economy to North America.
What Are KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes?
KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes are promotional discounts on Singapore Airlines flights that offer reduced KrisFlyer redemptions on select routes. The class of service and destinations available through the promotion differ each time, and are subject to a number of conditions.
Spontaneous Escapes must be booked during a specified period of time, and are eligible for a limited period of travel. This time, you have until September 30, 2023 to book, and from October 1–31, 2023 to travel, with some blackout dates.
Spontaneous Escapes are valid for redemptions on Singapore Airlines flights booked through singaporeair.com or through the app.
The discounts aren’t applicable to Singapore Airlines flights through other loyalty programs, such as Aeroplan, or with codeshare flights through KrisFlyer.
There are a limited number of seats available with promotional pricing, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Spontaneous Escapes can’t be changed or cancelled once booked, so you’ll want to be sure that you’re able to travel on the ticket once it’s confirmed.
Lastly, Spontaneous Escapes are valid on one-way and round-trip bookings; however, no stopovers are permitted, and waitlist redemptions aren’t allowed.
The full list of terms and conditions may be found on the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes website.
KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for October 2023
This month’s list of Spontaneous Escapes this time is longer than we’ve seen in the busy summer travel months.
On many routes between Singapore and Europe, Asia, Oceania, and North America, you can score a 30% discount on KrisFlyer redemptions in economy, premium economy, or business class, depending on the destination.
The full list of destinations can be found on the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes website. In many cases, the deals are linked to specific flight numbers or are subject to blackout dates, so you’ll want to give the list a close read if you’re planning on taking advantage of the promotion.
If you’re looking to fly between Singapore and Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, or Christchurch, you can book a flight in business class for 47,950 KrisFlyer miles.
For travel between Beijing or Shanghai and Singapore in October, you can get a flight in business class for 30,100 miles.
Perhaps the most interesting Spontaneous Escapes offer is for business class flights between Singapore and Paris, which can cost as little as 72,450 miles. That’s a great price for over 13 hours in the comfort of Singapore Airlines business class.
When it comes to North American routes, you’ll be limited to flying in premium economy with this month’s Spontaneous Escapes.
For example, you can try out the world’s longest commercial flight between Singapore and New York (JFK), which is available in premium economy for 56,350 miles, with wide-open availability.
Or, you can fly from Singapore to San Francisco in premium economy for 52,500 KrisFlyer miles with this month’s Spontaneous Escapes.
There’s no registration required for this promotion, and you simply complete an award booking through the Singapore Airlines website as you normally would. Just sign in to your account, and make sure to select “Redeem miles” before you begin your search.
You’ll need to keep an eye out for flights that price out according to the Spontaneous Escapes charts, as there is limited availability with the 30% discount. It’s pretty easy to spot, though, as the word “Promo” is clearly displayed in the results.
How to Earn Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles
In Canada, HSBC Rewards is the sole transfer partner to KrisFlyer, with a 25:9 ratio.
In other words, you’ll get 9,000 KrisFlyer miles for every 25,000 HSBC Rewards you transfer. Points must be transferred in increments of 10,000 after the first 25,000.
As always, you can transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to KrisFlyer miles at the optimal ratio of 60,000 points = 25,000 miles. Otherwise, you’ll have to look south of the border to US-issued credit cards to earn KrisFlyer miles.
Luckily, KrisFlyer is a transfer partner of all major US banks at a 1:1 ratio, including American Express US Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Capital One Miles. Therefore, a redemption through KrisFlyer should be well within the reach of anyone with access to the lucrative US credit card scene.
Singapore Airlines has released its latest KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes promotion, valid for bookings made until September 3o, 2023 for travel from October 1–31, 2023.
There are some great opportunities to score a Singapore Airlines flight in economy, premium economy, or business class this month to destinations in Asia, Oceania, Europe, and North America.
Be sure to lock in a booking through the promotion sooner than later, as seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
