Every month, the Singapore Airlines Krisflyer programme lists sectors where they discount the redemptions by 30%. The travel dates are the month after. Singapore Airlines released the list of Spontaneous Escapes, as they call them, which are valid for ticketing from today through August 31, 2023, and travel between September 1 and September 30, 2023.
The offer is valid for redemption on flights to various destinations across the Singapore Airlines network. From India, for instance, flights to/from Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Chennai are available for redemption, and redemptions start as low as 14,000 Krisflyer miles oneway. No seats are on offer from Delhi this time around.
There are also a limited number of seats in Premium Economy.
Unfortunately, not too many redemption options to the US this time around, excluding some opportunities to redeem in Economy to the US West Coast.
How to Redeem?
- Log in to your KrisFlyer account with your KrisFlyer membership number/ email address and password at the top right corner of this page.
- Select ‘Book a Flight’ on your dashboard.
- Click ‘Redeem flights’ and select your travel details.
- The redemption discount will only be reflected in the booking summary panel after selecting the flights.
- Seats are limited, and redemption availability is on a first-come-first-served basis.
I’ve enlisted some key terms and conditions I’ve gleaned away from the website of Singapore Airlines.
Key Terms & Conditions
- To qualify for the Promotion, tickets must be issued between 8 August (0000 hrs, GMT+8) and 31 August 2023 (2359 hrs, GMT+8) (“Promotion Period”), both dates inclusive, for travel from 1 September 2023 (0000 hrs, GMT+8) to 30 September 2023 (2359 hrs, GMT+8) for all destinations.
- Any change is strictly not permitted for bookings made under this promotion. Cancellation is also not allowed for partially unused or totally unused tickets.
- For (i) any flights cancelled by SIA, or (ii) if an SQ-operated flight was removed from a Participant’s booking due to Covid-19 and governmental regulatory changes, the miles redeemed in the unused portion of the ticket will be refunded into the relevant Participant’s KrisFlyer account with no additional fees charged. However, requests to change any booking details or to retain the ticket for future use will not be granted. Participants may submit their request via the Assistance Request form.
- The 30% discount level is only applied to the number of KrisFlyer miles required for an Economy Class Saver, Premium Economy Class Saver and/or Business Class Saver award ticket. The 30% discount will be displayed upon selecting eligible flight(s) under the Promo Awards category during booking on singaporeair.com.
As a reminder, Singapore Airlines Krisflyer miles are straightforward to earn in India, given that you can transfer them from the following credit cards:
- American Express Platinum Charge Card: 2 Membership Rewards: 1 KF Mile
- American Express Gold Charge Card: 2 Membership Rewards: 1 KF Mile
- American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card: 2 Membership Rewards: 1 KF Mile
- American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card: 2 Membership Rewards: 1 KF Mile

With travel opening up, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer offers the opportunity to redeem 30% fewer miles and fly over to Singapore and into other parts of the world as long as you book your tickets now and fly in September 2023. It would be a great use of some of those KrisFlyer miles you might have transferred to use the promotion to earn status a couple of years ago.
