It’s the middle of the month and that means that Singapore Airlines has published its latest set of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes deals. As usual, the airline is offering KrisFlyer members 30% off award bookings on select routes (in its Economy, Premium Economy, and Business class cabins) and as usual, the value on offer will vary from route to route.

Headline terms & conditions

  • Book by 31 July 2024 (23:59 hrs Local Time).
  • Travel between 1 and 31 August 2024 (blackout dates may apply).
  • Get a 30% discount on select award bookings.
  • One-way and round-trip awards are permissible.
  • Taxes and fees will be charged.

Full terms and conditions have been reproduced at the end of this post.

The deals

The Spontaneous Escapes deals that we saw published in January and February were a small improvement on what we became used to seeing in 2023, in March most of the deals evaporated (once again) and, if we’re being honest, this set of deals isn’t really any better.

Yes, there are a few potentially interesting Premium Economy deals that some may find helpful, and West Asia is served well in Business Class this time around, but I can’t be the only one missing the great deals that we saw in the past (where truly long-haul routes appeared frequently).

Note: The costs you’ll see indicated below are for one-way travel excluding taxes and fees.

Keep in mind

The Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program is a transfer partner for all four major transferable currencies (from Chase, Citi, Amex, and Capital One), so if any of the deals that you see below would work well for you but you don’t have a healthy KrisFlyer balance, you should be able to top up your KrisFlyer account from one or more sources.

Bottom line

As usual, how these deals are viewed will vary from person to person (depending on people’s travel plans) but on the whole, there isn’t much in this set of Spontaneous Escapes to get excited about and we seem to be seeing fewer and fewer deals to/from North America and Europe (which is where, I suspect, most of our readers are based).
