Some of the best value for your KrisFlyer miles is realised with First and Business Class saver redemptions on Singapore Airlines, particularly on long-haul flights. However, that’s not to say that there aren’t many other flight redemption options, allowing you to tap into award space on over 30 other carriers globally.

Here’s our run down of which airlines you can redeem on, where they fly and how you can do it.

Redeeming KrisFlyer miles

We’re often asked “can I use my KrisFlyer miles on….. x airline?”. Usually the answer is no (there are 290 IATA member airlines globally, and many other non-members). Sometimes though the answer is yes, and it surprises us that many people aren’t aware of the scope of the KrisFlyer mile.

Whether you find yourself stuck for options in deepest South America, trying to find a way from Indianapolis to Anchorage, or simply scratching your head when SIA doesn’t have award availability in Business Class to Europe next Thursday, there’s probably a Star Alliance or partner airline redemption option available using KrisFlyer miles.

Note
Scoot redemption with KrisFlyer miles is possible, but it’s a ‘cashback’ scheme valuing your miles at 0.95 cents each. A last resort you should probably never consider, even if your KrisFlyer miles are expiring there are better value ways to use them.
