Due to the tremendous popularity of our deal alert series, Singapore Airlines reached out to see if we’d like to feature a deal exclusively for TPG readers. And since this is one heck of a steal, we were happy to oblige!

Last month, we shared a fantastic TPG-exclusive Singapore Airlines fare to Russia. You can fly round-trip from Houston to Moscow on Singapore’s 777 for just $399, including all taxes. You can travel any time between September 1 and December 1, but the flight must be ticketed by next Monday, August 10. There’s still fantastic availability on this route, with open seats on every date we searched. Keep in mind that flights in both directions are only available on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

If Russia isn’t somewhere you’d like to visit right now, you could still take advantage of this deal to travel to other countries by booking this flight through Singapore and adding on a separate round-trip departing DME airport. If you book flights departing from another airport (or you plan to visit Russia), you’ll need to get a Russian visa.

Here’s an example of the round-trip flight available as part of this deal:

Houston to Moscow on Singapore for $399.

You’ll pay just $399 round-trip, including taxes and fees, when you book directly through this Singapore page. These fares are so low that you’ll pay nearly as much in taxes and surcharges ($394) on an award ticket.

Houston to Moscow for 34,000 miles plus $393.

Of course, for $399 you’ll be flying in economy, but Singapore offers a better coach experience than you’ll find on most other carriers.

Each seat includes excellent (and free) in-flight entertainment with an 10.6-inch display, and 19-inch-wide seats with 32 inches of pitch (compare that to 17 inches wide and 31 inches of pitch on AA’s 777-300ER).
