Spontaneous Escapes 30% miles discounts on selected KrisFlyer awards in June

Book saver redemption tickets on selected flights by 31st May to enjoy 30% savings for travel in June.

EXPIRED This article relates to an offer or promotion which has now expired.

SQ A380 Flypast (Nicolas Lannuzel)

Singapore Airlines have announced their latest KrisFlyer ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ promotion for travel during June 2018. As always – redemptions need to be booked in the next two weeks (by 31st May 2018) to qualify for the discounts and unlike regular KrisFlyer redemptions these flights, once booked, aren’t changeable or refundable.

The rules

You should all be familiar by now with the rules for this regular offer – but for those new to it here’s a summary of the T&Cs:

  • Book before 31st May 2018.
  • Valid for flights from 1st – 30th June 2018.
  • Only valid on “Saver” redemptions.
  • Respect blackout dates (e.g. Singapore to Hong Kong in Economy Class blocked 14th-18th June).
  • Changes and cancellation are not permitted for bookings made under this promotion.
  • All sectors must be available on the offer (e.g. if your chosen return sector is unavailable on the correct flight – the cost for the whole trip jumps! Book one-ways instead and still save).

Waitlist redemptions are applicable for the discount. That means you can add one of these flights as a waitlist redemption for the discounted rate. If it comes up for confirmation by 31st May, it’s yours for the lower rate. If it clears on 1st June or later, you’ll have to pay the normal rate.

Booking tip

We’ve said it before – but it’s not made obvious on the website that the discounted miles rate is being applied – have faith! Click the ‘Saver’ rate and then check the drop-down box, where the discounted rate is then shown, if your flight is applicable for discount:

Best deals this month

There are 32 destinations available for travel on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir throughout most dates in June, with some exclusion periods and availability on various routes only available on specific flight numbers. It’s all shown below in the tables.

Hong Kong is available again this month with 30% off – selected flights are operated by the A380 Version 3 with the latest 2017 business class seats – 19,250 miles each way on flights SQ856 and SQ861 operating daily throughout June. A great value way to try out these new seats for about 4 hours, especially if you’re short of the miles needed for a longer trip.

We reviewed the new product in January and think it’s one of the best long-haul business class products on the market currently.

2017 J-6s

Of course as we mentioned before with the discount as a percentage, the further you go the more miles you save over the regular rates. Singapore to Dusseldorf in business class – now a regular fixture on the discount list – saves 25,500 miles each way over the usual saver redemption.

In business Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra are all available this month, albeit with some date exclusions on Brisbane and Sydney. These routes all save 17,400 miles each way on the usual cost.

Dubai features again this month with 13,500 miles off for business class saver redemptions in June.

For the fourth month in a row the brand new A380 business class is also discounted on the Sydney flight but it’s a lot more limited this time with only SQ221 SIN-SYD available for the second half of the month and only the older products in the northbound direction.

At 40,600 miles each way of course it remains a great deal if you can find dates which suit you, which isn’t an easy task as you’ll see later on with only 4 saver seats currently eligible for the discount available for immediate saver redemption.

New Regional Business Class

Discounted seats appeared in the Spontaneous Escapes offer last month for May 2018 on flights to Bangkok and Perth featuring the new 2018 RJ business class seats, but unfortunately there are no opportunities this time round to try out this new product for a reduced miles cost.

If you’re still interested in a full price redemption our 2018 RJ Tracker page will help you know the routes on which you’ll find this new seat.

Redemption Availability

We can’t check redemption seats on all these routes for June, but the best option which probably interests our readers most remains the newest ‘2017 J‘ A380 business class seat. As we mentioned above you can secure that seat in June at the discounted rate between Singapore and Hong Kong on a daily basis, and from Singapore to Sydney (one-way) from 16th to 30th June.

To experience this new product you’ll need to book SQ221 on the Singapore to Sydney sector. For Hong Kong it’s SQ856 from Singapore to Hong Kong and/or SQ861 from Hong Kong to Singapore.

Here’s a breakdown of saver award seat availability for those routes during the promotion. Hong Kong is wide open in both directions, but Singapore to Sydney is almost non-existent with only 4 seats in total available for immediate saver redemption on 3 different days.

Remember it can change at short notice and bookings must be made by 31st May to enjoy the discounted miles rate. If you’re interested and the date you want isn’t currently available – keep checking!

Remember…

If you can’t secure a return flight with the discount, book a one-way instead, then pay the usual saver rate for the other sector. On a return flight with this offer, as soon as one of the two flights falls outside the promotion, it re-prices the whole thing to the higher rate, which will cost you more.

Happy searching and booking!
