Now an eagerly awaited monthly feature for KrisFlyer members, the latest Singapore Airlines and SilkAir KrisFlyer ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ destinations list for discounted award tickets in August 2018 has been released. As usual it’s a 2-week booking window so you’ll have to secure your tickets at the lower rates before 31st July 2018 to be eligible.

What’s ‘Spontaneous Escapes’?

Singapore Airlines releases the ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ offer almost every month with discounts on ‘Saver’ award tickets. Economy Class seats always feature, and there’s usually a list of Business Class routes on Singapore Airlines too.

For SilkAir flights it’s usually just Economy Class discounts, though some months Business Class is included in the offer.

Typically you’ll get 30% off saver awards, though there are occasional 40% discount offers and a 50% saving was once available on a single route earlier this year.

This isn’t ‘charitable giving’ of course – Singapore Airlines is a business and these are seats they basically know they can’t fill even at regular saver award rates. That explains both the difference in routes offered each month and the fact that some popular routes are hardly ever (or never) discounted at all.

The ‘Spontaneous Escapes’ offer for August was released earlier today and features a special 40% discount for Economy saver flights to Bangkok, Yangon and Phnom Penh. Usually 12,500 KrisFlyer miles one-way for an Economy saver, these three routes are now bookable for all of August at a rate of 7,500 miles one-way.

Otherwise it’s the standard 30% discount on other selected routes and cabin classes. As always you have two weeks left to search and book at the discounted rate.


Best deals this month

Discounts are applicable for 43 Singapore Airlines and SilkAir destinations for most dates in August. As always there are some blackout dates and specific flight numbers on certain routes. You can see the full listing in the tables below,
