For the second year in a row, Singapore Airlines has launched a new set of KrisFlyer Experiences for the Singapore Formula 1 race, with Sky Suite packages with full catering including free-flow Champagne and other beverages, in return for your KrisFlyer miles.
These experiences don’t come cheap – starting from 130,000 KrisFlyer miles per person, but there are discounts on offer for KrisFlyer UOB credit card holders who will get a 10% miles rebate.
KrisFlyer Experiences Singapore F1 Sky Suite Packages
Here are the three packages KrisFlyer members are being offered for the Sky Suite at the 2023 Singapore Formula 1, including links to the respective redemption pages with full details of the inclusions.
|Package||Date||Cost per person|
|Sky Suite: Practice||Friday
|Sky Suite: Qualifying||Saturday
|Sky Suite: Race||Sunday
You can make multiple redemptions for additional attendees and / or different days, subject to availability, but remember all experiences are non-refundable once redeemed.
It’s no longer possible to purchase these packages directly, but pricing this year before the Sky Suites tickets sold out was as follows:
- Practice: S$1,944
- Qualifying: S$3,132
- Race: S$5,616
- All 3 days: S$8,856
That’s potentially giving you great value for these redemptions at up to 1.87 cents per mile for these experiences, if you put face value on the packages.
- Practice: 1.50 cents per mile (1.66 cents for KF UOB)
- Qualifying: 1.74 cents per mile (1.93 cents for KF UOB)
- Race: 1.87 cents per mile (1.94 cents for KF UOB)
Sky Suites guests also get access to all four zones of the F1 circuit.
It’s even better for KrisFlyer UOB debit and credit card holders, who get a 10% discount on the miles required once again this year. The deal is capped at six redemptions per session per customer.
The discount is sadly not instant, but instead will be credited to your KrisFlyer account by 31st December 2023.
To take advantage, KrisFlyer UOB credit card holders will need to book through the following dedicated links:
Terms and conditions for the KrisFlyer UOB cardholder offer are available here.
This could be a good way to cash out expiring miles, now that issue is rearing its head again as early as next week for some members.
Aside from the Sky Suite experience itself, entertainment lineups for this year’s race include Kings of Leon and Robbie Williams. Full details for the entertainment side this year are available here.
KrisFlyer Experiences is once again offering Sky Suites packages for miles at the upcoming Singapore F1 in September.
The redemption rates, while definitely on the steep side, still represent good value for these experiences, even if you’re miles aren’t expiring.
Last year these were snapped up quickly and that’s likely to be the case again this year, so it’s a good idea to book soon if you’re interested. Don’t forget there’s a miles discount available for KrisFlyer UOB credit card holders too, which make these packages even better value.
