Singapore Airlines has published its Spontaneous Escapes deals for travel in August and while the airline is still offering an attractive 30% discount on awards booked on select routes, the number of routes offering discounted Business Class awards and/or discounted Premium Economy awards continues to be disappointing.

Australia and Hong Kong both reappear in this set of deals but we’re still a long way from the good deals that we saw when Spontaneous Escapes first came back (in full) back in March. Worse yet, this is the first set of deals announced since Singapore airlines increased the cost of award travel and that just adds insult to injury.

Key terms

  • Book by 31 July 2022 (2359 hrs, GMT+8)
  • Travel between 1 August 2022 (0000 hrs, GMT+8) to 31 August 2022 (2359 hrs, GMT+8) for all destinations
  • Get a 30% discount on select award bookings
  • One-way and roundtrip awards are permissible
  • Taxes and fees will be charged

Full terms and conditions are reproduced at the end of this post

Example deals

The prices shown are for one-way travel excluding taxes and fees.

Keep in mind these are examples so there are other options available too.

Business Class deals

More than a little amazingly, this set of Business Class Spontaneous Escapes deals doesn’t feature any routes to or from Europe, the United States, or the Middle East so if you were hoping for some blockbuster long-haul offers, now would be the time to reset your expectations.

Southeast Asia routes:

Singapore to or from…

  • Hanoi (on select flights) – 16,800 miles*
  • Ho Chi Minh City (on select flights) – 16,800 miles*
  • Manila (on select flights) – 16,800 miles
  • Siem Reap (on select flights) – 16,800 miles*

*Blackout dates may apply

North Asia route:

Singapore to or from…

  • Hong Kong (on select flights) – 23,800 miles

West Asia & Africa routes:

Singapore to or from…

  • Bangalore (on select flights) – 30,100 miles
  • Chennai (on select flights) – 30,100 miles
  • Mumbai (on select flights) – 30,100 miles
  • New Delhi (on select flights) – 30,100 miles

Australia routes:

Singapore to or from…

  • Darwin (on select flights) – 28,350 miles
  • Adelaide (on select flights) – 47,950 miles

That’s it! There are a few other Business Class spontaneous deals on offer in some of these regions but nothing exciting and nothing in any other region.

Example Premium Economy deals

Just as with the Business Class awards, Premium Economy deals are very thin on the ground…although at least we have a couple of deals available to and/or from New York.

North Asia route:

Singapore to or from…

  • Hong Kong (on select flights) – 18,550 miles

West Asia & Africa routes:

Singapore to or from…

  • Mumbai (on select flights) – 24,150 miles
  • New Delhi (on select flights) – 24,150 miles*

*Blackout dates may apply

Australia route:

Singapore to or from…

  • Sydney (on select flights) – 35,700 miles*

*Blackout dates may apply

Bottom Line

The Spontaneous Escapes deals for travel in July were depressingly bad and these deals are only marginally better. The great deals we saw for travel between April and the end of May are quickly becoming a distant memory and this is another set of very disappointing set of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes. Here’s hoping for better news next month!
