Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes: Redeem 30% less miles for award flights to selected destinations

ADVERTISEMENT

It’s been a couple of years since I last wrote about Singapore Airlines’ Spontaneous Escapes deals!

What is Spontaneous Escapes?

Around the middle of every month, Singapore Airlines shares a list of last-minute destinations for you to redeem Krisflyer miles at a discount.

With these monthly deals, members can usually redeem 30% less miles for Economy, Premium Economy or Business Class flights to selected cities. But occasionally, we saw discounts up to 51%!

Over the next couple of weeks (till 31 March 2022), redemptions for these destinations will cost you 30% less miles.

What about European cities?

This month’s Spontaneous Escapes includes some European cities like Barcelona, Milan and Rome.

At 64,400 miles each way in Business Class, I would call this a barely good deal. That is, if you can find award availability on your preferred date, without waitlisting.

Waitlist galore for SIN-FCO

Besides, I feel that it is more exciting to travel in Finnair’s newest Business Class seat or Qatar Airways Qsuite than Singapore Airlines’ Business Class seat that was launched some 9 years ago.

Bottom line

If you made it through the period of “revenge travel” without redeeming your Krisflyer miles at crazy “Advantage” rates, congratulations, this is your time to shine.
