Every month, Singapore Airlines publishes a promotion called “Spontaneous Escapes” and it can be a great deal if 1) you’re spontaneous and 2) you’re looking to redeem some miles on the fantastic Singapore Airlines.

THE BACKGROUND

Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program (the loyalty program of Singapore Airlines) publishes a list of “discounted” award flights every month.

With 30% off the normal flight redemption rates to destinations in the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir network, there is a great opportunity to see dozens of new places…for less!

STEP-BY-STEP DIRECTIONS

Some destinations are restricted to specific flight numbers, and others are restricted to specific dates, but “Spontaneous Escapes” are called spontaneous for a reason. Here are the major conditions that you should be familiar with:

  1. SEARCH Spontaneous Escapes
  2. REDEEM your miles on singaporeair.com between now and 31 December 2019
  3. TRAVEL between 1 January – 31 January 2020 (inclusive)

DESTINATION STANDOUTS

Typically, these flights are discounted because the plane isn’t full and the airline does not anticipate selling a bunch of seats before departure. So they offer the seats and a discount in hopes of filling the plane.

Personally, this list isn’t too exciting. However, a few routes that do stand out for me include:

  • Singapore to Dusseldorf one-way in Business Class for 64,400 miles
  • Singapore to Adelaide one-way in Business Class for 43,400 miles
  • Singapore to Seoul, Fukuoka, Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka, one-way in Business Class for 32,900 miles
  • New York to Frankfurt one-way in Premium Economy for 32,900 miles
  • London to Singapore one-way in Economy for 26,600 miles
  • New York to Frankfurt one-way in Economy for 15,750 miles

HOW DO I EARN SINGAPORE MILES?

If you find yourself short on KrisFlyer miles, don’t worry. Singapore is a transfer partner with Amex Membership RewardsCapital OneChase Ultimate Rewards, Marriott, and Citi ThankYou, so it’s pretty easy to earn points that can be redeemed for these flights.

FINAL STAMP

Singapore is a phenomenal airline! One thing to remember, specifically, about Singapore Airlines is they open a lot of premium cabin award space to members of their own KrisFlyer program and restrict award space for partners using their miles (on Singapore Airlines planes). In other words, it is very unlikely that you will find an award seat using a partners miles.

In respect to the Spontaneous Escapes, you’ll want to take a look at the list for all of the details before booking as this can represent excellent value if your plans are flexible.

Are you going to book a Spontaneous Escape? If so, which one looks exciting?
