Singapore Airlines made its Spontaneous Escapes deal a regular monthly offer last year, with the official launch in February 2019 offering Business Class saver awards for Economy rates. That meant generous discounts of 45% to 61%, undoubtedly one of the best offers we’d seen. Economy awards meanwhile were discounted by 50%.

Since then the offer has settled at its ‘default’ 30% discount each month, which can still be a good deal on many routes especially in Business Class.

This month though the airline has a really fantastic offer – 51% off the usual saver award rates if you can book by the end of January and travel in February.

That’s to celebrate KrisFlyer’s 21st birthday in February 2020, so an extra 21% off the normal discount was called for!

We’re seeing Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class included on a wide variety of routes, plus selected SilkAir flights in Economy and Business Class too.

Destinations include Europe in Business Class, like Barcelona, Rome and Frankfurt, plus Australia, the USA and an extensive Asia-Pacific selection with over 40 cities included this month.

The rules remain unchanged – you’ll have to book by 31st January 2020, and fly in February 2020. Offers are subject to saver award availability.
