To avoid sales clutter, we’ve decided to start a weekly series on airfare deals. Here’s where we’ll feature a summary of all but the most time-sensitive of deals (e.g flash sales). Purchases made through any of the links in this article supports The Milelion through an affiliate commission.
KLM is having its Dream Deals sale which runs from now until 18 September 2018. These fares must be booked on KLM’s website. Tickets booked in this sale are for travel from 15 September 2018 to 15 June 2019.
In this sale, you can travel on either Air France or KLM to destinations worldwide. From South America to Europe, there are decent sale fares to be had. The better deals, however, are to Europe. Fares start from S$746 to Europe on KLM/Air France and if you are looking at traveling within the region with KLM, fares to Bali start from S$206.
Brussels from S$746 is a potentially good deal, with good connectivity options to France, the United Kingdom and Germany.
Here are some of the fares which KLM are offering:

Both KLM and Air France fly their Boeing 777-300ER aircraft between their hubs and Singapore and Economy Class is laid out in a 3-4-3 format.
Qatar Airways is currently holding a fare sale which will end on 18 September 2018. In conjunction with this sale, Qatar Airways is also offering up to 3X Qmiles accrual for Qatar Airways Privilege Club members who register for the promotion and book directly on the Qatar Airways website during this sale.
Tickets booked during this sale are for travel from now until 31 May 2019.
In this sale, flights to Europe start from S$837 and flights to the Americas start from S$1,356. Business Class fares are also on offer.
Here’s the full list of destinations on sale:
Qatar Airways flies their A350 between Singapore and Doha and from Doha to other destinations as well. Economy Class is laid out in a 3-3-3 configuration and if you’re splurging on Business Class, you’ll be glad to know that Qatar Airways will be flying their A350-1000 with QSuite to Singapore from November 2018.
Singapore Airlines is holding its Great Singapore Airlines Getaway sale where there are great two-to-go fares for departure from Singapore between April 2019 – August 2019. Tickets must be booked by 27 September 2018 and must be booked on the Singapore Airlines website.
Some great fares include Hong Kong from S$258 and Tokyo from S$578. London from S$998 and Los Angeles from S$1,168 are excellent fares too. You can check out more details of this sale over on the Singapore Airlines website.
The past week wasn’t an exciting one in terms of airfare deals. If you are able to know your schedule between April to August 2019, I highly recommend checking out the sale which they are running. If you are looking for flights over the December holidays, KLM and Qatar Airways would be your best bet.
