Welcome to the latest round of Singapore Airlines’ monthly Spontaneous Escapes promotion. This month we’re looking at the KrisFlyer redemption discounts offered for October 2018.

Book by 30th September 2018 to be eligible for 30% off the miles needed on selected routes.

There’s also a special discount of between 23,000 and 30,000 miles for some non-stop USA flights on the A350ULR to San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York in both Premium Economy and Business Class.

What is Spontaneous Escapes?

There’s nothing too complicated about the Spontaneous Escapes offer – these are seats Singapore Airlines can’t fill in October even at saver award rates. The cost for them to have you occupying a seat which would otherwise fly empty is minimal (you’re still paying the taxes remember). In return they get to reduce the number of KrisFlyer miles in circulation which reduces liability on their balance sheet.

If you can fit one of these discounted redemptions into your travel plans at short notice then none of that really matters of course – what’s important is that you’re getting a good deal compared to usual.


Do bear in mind of course that unlike a normal KrisFlyer redemption, any booking made under the Spontaneous Escapes offer is non-changeable and non-refundable.

Non-stop USA specials

Singapore Airlines is offering a range of discounts on new Airbus A350ULR flights this month, for travel in October and November 2018.

On selected flights, pay the Economy miles rate for a Premium Economy award ticket, or the Premium Economy rate for a Business award ticket.
