Some routes have specific dates of travel while some have specific flights that offer the award discounts so it is best to take a look at the list first. While both one-way or round-trip can be bookable with a discount, a stopover is not permitted.

How To Earn Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles

There are numerous ways in which you can earn KrisFlyer miles:

  • Earn when you fly Singapore Airlines or partner airlines
  • Earn by using co-branded credit cards
  • Earn when you stay at the hotel or rent a car
  • Earn through online shopping portals

Although earning from a credit card is the fastest way to grab a large number of miles, for those who do not have a credit card yet, flying Singapore Airlines or Star Alliance partners will let you earn a large number of miles too.

Through April 30, 2023, the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program launched a ‘Spontaneous Escape’ sale where you can book 30% off an award seat on either Economy, Premium Economy or Business Class on select routes.

Since Singapore Airlines restrict partner award availabilities on premium class, this is a great offer to take advantage of for those who have travel plans between May 1 through May 31, 2023, as some routes have good deals.
