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 November 30, 2023 to score a 30% discount for travel on select flights from December 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 networks, as well as opportunities to fly premium economy and business class to North America. However, with the busy holiday travel period in December, it’s worth noting that there are many blackout dates this time around.
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 November 30, 2023 to book, and from December 1–31, 2023 to travel, with many blackout dates for holiday travel.
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 December 2023
This month’s list of Spontaneous Escapes this time is quite extensive once again, and covers destinations across Singapore Airlines’s vast network. However, there are more blackout dates than in previous months, due to the busy holiday travel season ahead.
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 Sydney or from Melbourne to Singapore, you can book a flight in business class for 47,950 KrisFlyer miles.
For travel between Malé and Singapore in December, you can get a flight in business class for 30,100 miles.
You can fly from Singpore to Frankfurt, Munich, or Zurich in December for 72,450 KrisFlyer miles.
Perhaps the most interesting Spontaneous Escapes offer this month is for the fifth freedom business class flights between Frankfurt and New York (JFK), which can cost as little as 56,700 miles. That’s a great price for almost nine hours in the comfort of Singapore Airlines business class.
When it comes to other 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 fifth freedom flight between Tokyo and Los Angeles, which is available in premium economy for 51,100 miles, with wide-open availability.
Or, you can fly between New York (JFK) and Frankfurt in either direction for 36,400 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 November 30, 2023 for travel from December 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.
