Every month, Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer mileage program puts certain routes on discount through its KrisFlyer “Spontaneous Escapes” program. Through the end of June, you can score up to 30% off certain routes and cabins for last-minute flights in July.
While there are dozens of discounted routes on the full list, the US and UK were shutout from this version of the list. That means that this promotion is primarily useful for connecting you between Singapore and Asian destinations.
That said, there are mid- and long-haul options that are worth considering:
|Singapore to Seoul (and vice versa)||17,500||24,150||32,900|
|Singapore to Fukuoka (and v.v.)||17,500||N/A||32,900|
|Singapore to Nagoya (and v.v.)||17,500||N/A||32,900|
|Singapore to Osaka (and v.v.)||17,500||N/A||32,900|
|Singapore to Tokyo (and v.v.)||17,500||N/A||32,900|
|Singapore to Johannesburg (and v.v.)||17,500||N/A||34,300|
|Singapore to Dubai||17,500||N/A||34,300|
|Brisbane to Singapore||19,600||32,900||43,400|
|Singapore to Frankfurt||26,600||N/A||64,400|
|Singapore to Düsseldorf||N/A||N/A||64,400|
|Singapore to New Delhi||N/A||22,400||N/A|
|Singapore to Mumbai||N/A||22,400||N/A|
Note that flights in both directions aren’t always discounted. So, make sure to pay attention to the route direction when planning a trip.
For those looking for hops intra-Asia, there are dozens of short-haul routes also listed.
If you already have an award flight booked for this period, it could be worth cancelling your existing award, paying a small redeposit fee and re-booking at the lower rate if the dates work out for you.
