The latest round of Singapore Airlines and SilkAir Spontaneous Escapes redemption ticket discounts has been announced, this time for flights during September 2018 (and October 2018 for SilkAir).

Big news this month is 50% off SilkAir saver award flights to an extensive list of destinations, meaning you can fly all the way to Japan (Hiroshima) in Economy Class on their new 737 MAX aircraft for 12,500 miles. For perspective, thats the usual saver rate from Singapore to Bangkok on Singapore Airlines!

Not since June 2017 have such a wide range of SilkAir awards been discounted by 50%. The SilkAir offer runs for 2 months, from 1st September 2018 to 31st October 2018.

Of course if Singapore Airlines flights are the ones which interest you most you’ll be pleased to know they haven’t been left out and a number of routes enjoy the more regular 30% discount offer for travel in September, including options to fly the new 2017 Business Class on the A380 and the 2018 regional Business Class on the 787-10.

The rules remain unchanged – find a saver award ticket for one of the destinations and flight numbers included on the offer and provided you book before 31st August 2018 it’s yours for the cheaper rate.

About Spontaneous Escapes

Far from someone in Airline House feeling generous on a Wednesday afternoon, Spontaneous Escapes is a way for Singapore Airlines to fill seats which would otherwise fly empty, even if offered at the usual saver award rates. Otherwise there would simply be no reason for the offer.

That means some popular routes never appear on the list, while for others seasonal demand variations give rise to an ever-changing variety of destinations in both Economy and Business Class.

Highlights for September 2018

The Spontaneous Escapes offer for September was released this afternoon. As mentioned, this month the biggest discounts are 50% for SilkAir flights, with selected Singapore Airlines routes listed at the 30% discount rate in both Economy and Business Class.

As usual the full list of offers is provided in the tables below. SilkAir highlights this month, for travel in either September 2018 or October 2018, are:

  • Bali in Business for 8,750 miles and Hiroshima in Business for 21,500 miles.
