KrisFlyer for Families: Transfer your kids’ miles into your own account

You can now transfer KrisFlyer miles from your child's account into your own, for better flexibility when booking award tickets.

Link your accounts before the end of August to earn 500 bonus KrisFlyer miles.

Traditionally, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer membership has always been individual, without the option to share or link your accounts, which can make earning and spending as a family for future award trips a little complicated.

Most people get around this by setting up their family members as redemption nominees, to allow flexibility when it comes to booking award tickets.



The redemption nominee system

KrisFlyer members can have up to five redemption nominees, who can be family members or anyone you like really. You can then use your miles to redeem flights for them.

That’s useful because otherwise, under KrisFlyer’s rules, you can only book award tickets in your own name, unlike programmes live Avios and Alaska Mileage Plan which allow you to redeem for anyone.

You can only change someone who is a redemption nominee on your account six months after adding them. Furthermore, if you do not hold KrisFlyer Gold status or above, a fee applies each time you change your nominees list.

KrisFlyer for Families

Singapore Airlines has now made an enhancement to the flexibility for accounts in your child’s name, with the ability to transfer up to 50,000 KrisFlyer miles a year held by your kids into your own account if you wish.
