Background-Mar2020

Last month Singapore Airlines launched one of its best Spontaneous Escapes deals yet, with 51% off a range of Economy and Business Class award tickets. That was an additional 21% off the usual discount, to celebrate KrisFlyer’s 21st anniversary.

This month it’s back to normal with the regular 30% discount applied for travel on selected routes in March 2020 and April 2020 for some USA flights.

Background-Mar2020

In March there are a range of Europe flights with the discount in Business Class, including Singapore to Barcelona in the 2013 J seats and Zurich to Singapore in the new 2017 product.

Several Australia routes are also discounted, including Sydney, and there are some relatively good value Premium Economy options including Seoul for 24,150 miles – less than the usual Economy redemption rate on that route.

Some Economy deals are also worth considering, like Singapore to London for 26,600 miles – less than it normally costs to fly to Australia in that cabin.

The rules are the same as always – you’ll have to book by the end of this month, 29th February 2020, and fly in March 2020. Offers are subject to saver award availability.

Spontaneous Escapes

Here’s how the Spontaneous Escapes offer works, for those unfamiliar with the deal.

Spontaneous Escapes

  • Regular deal posted around 15th of every month.
  • Typically a 30% discount on saver award redemptions for travel in the following month.
  • Redeem online by 29th February 2020.
  • Travel in March 2020 (and April 2020 for non-stop Los Angeles flights).
  • Flights are non-refundable and non-changeable.
  • Blackout dates apply on some routes.
  • Book one-way legs if the discount only applies on one of the two (or more) flights you need, otherwise the pricing jumps to standard rates for all sectors.
  • Travel must be completed by 31st March 2020.
  • Book as many redemptions as you like at Spontaneous Escapes rates – it’s not capped.
  • Waitlist Saver redemptions are included in the discount, however the waitlist must clear on or before 29th February. If it clears after that, the regular ‘Saver’ rate will apply.

Best in Business

The most important aspect of this monthly deal is where its best value usually lies – the latest long-haul and flat-bed regional Business Class seats in the airline’s fleet for 30% fewer miles in March 2020.

Before we get into the full route list, here’s a summary of these ‘Best in Business’ deals.
