Krisflyer offering 50% off Silkair award tickets for limited time

Krisflyer has recently started offering a spate of discounted award redemptions for tickets on Singapore Airlines and Silk Air. Here are the ones we’ve had in recent memory

May 2015: 50% off SQ and MI economy awards
Feb 2016: 30% off SQ and MI economy awards
July 2016: 50% off MI economy awards
October 2016: 50% off MI economy awards
November 2016:  30% off SQ premium economy and economy awards 

Well, another promotion is back, this time for Silkair business and economy class saver awards.

Click here to see the full details.

You can get 50% off the miles required when you book from now till 11 July 2017, and travel between 1 July and 31 October 2017. There are 53 different Silkair destinations up for redemption this time round, including popular ones like Koh Samui.

Note that you will only enjoy the 50% if your award tickets before 11 July 2017. That is, if you remain on the waitlist as of 11 July 2017 and your waitlist subsequently clears, you will pay the regular price, notwithstanding the fact that you got on the waitlist before 11 July 2017.

Also note that this is a “genuine” 50% discount, unlike the past few promotions where the headline would read “50% discount” but in practice it’s be 35%, because you’d enjoy a 15% discount when you redeemed your Krisflyer miles online anyway.  Now that the 15% online redemption discount doesn’t apply anymore, your savings are really 50%. Whether you see that as half full or half empty, well…

I’ve never flown Silkair’s business class product before so enjoy these two artistically washed out photos from Silkair’s website

It might be tricky finding economy saver space that’s immediately confirmable on the dates you want, but there seems to be better business saver space on most routes. And at 50% off, why not? It’ll give you a chance to experience the Silver Kris lounges in T2 and T3, if nothing else (Silkair operates from T2 but you can take the skytrain across and get access to the T3 lounge).

  1. hi Aaron, do you foresee SQ follow suit on this promotion in near future, i.e. giving discount to SQ award redemption ?

    Thanks

        1. haha.. sorry… not meant for you to be the oracle..

          i guess too eager for sq promo..

          arsenal could win if only ……………..

          1. i mean, if we look at the historical trends we see that SQ has done before, I guess they’ll do it again. more encouragingly the last time round they added PY to the list of possible awards as well, it used to be only Y.

  2. Wait…are you an Arsenal fan? Respect Bro! Flying off to Sydney next month to see them play in Sydney! I felt very unmotivated to support them due to their beyond ordinary performance.

      1. Disagree. If you were truly a masochist, you would be reviewing United’s new basic economy instead of slumming it.

        1. I did fly ua basic economy a while back actually… but as a star gold I still got priority boarding, free bags and lounge access #sellout

  3. Thanks Aaron for the heads up! Booked a couple of Business return flights to Xiamen and love the 50% miles discount!
