Silkair’s 50% off redemptions promo is back again

Krisflyer has run a series of discounted redemption prices promotions in recent memory

50% off Krisflyer redemptions till 10th July

Silkair is offering 35% off online redemptions till 4 August

These promotions cover economy class redemptions (and business class for SilkAir). Although I’m generally against redeeming miles for economy class travel, the 50% off miles required makes it an acceptable deal in my mind.

The 50% deal is back again. Bookings from now till 16 Oct 2016 get 50% off redemption prices when you travel by 15 Nov 2016.

Note that the 50% savings is calculated based on the regular price that appears on the site. You already get 15% off award prices when you redeem online, so you’re really saving an incremental 35%. Which is still none too shabby in my opinion.

If you’re planning a beach getaway, here are some destinations that may appeal to you

Economy Business
SIN-USM 6,250 10,000
SIN-PEN 3,750 8,750
SIN-DPS 8,750 Not available
SIN-HKT 6,250 10,000
SIN-MLE 9,250 17,500

Other things to note: The discount only applies for saver class availability, so you better hope and pray that Krisflyer finds it in its heart to actually open up some. Oddly enough, the T&C say that any changes are not permitted for bookings made under this promotion, and cancellation is not allowed for partially used tickets. My reading of this is- you can cancel and rebook provided you’ve not flown, but you can’t change a booking which you’ve not flown. Which is weird, but we’ll see.

Regular readers will know I love Koh Samui, it’s just that getting there is really expensive. This promotion makes it a lot more viable to get an award ticket there, assuming Silkair actually releases space on the route…
