KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes

KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes April 2024

The KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for April is released! Use 30% fewer KrisFlyer miles to redeem for your next business class flight.
This is one of the more mellow months, with only few good route options available.

It’s the time of the month when Singapore Airlines announces its monthly Spontaneous Escape promotion! With this promotion, you can save 30% off your award redemptions with Singapore Airlines.

What is the Spontaneous Escapes?

Spontaneous Escapes is a promotion by Singapore Airlines where they’ll offer award redemption rates at 30% off the standard Saver award tickets to selected destinations. The flights have to be flown on the following month, and therefore spontaneous!

This is usually the best opportunity to make your hard-earned KrisFlyer miles go even further. You can often find amazing deals assuming you can take off on a moment’s notice (or a month). In this month’s case, that’s 2 months notice!

For the spontaneous escapes promotion this month, you’ll have to book your ticket by 30th April 2024 and fly between 1st May 2024 to 31st May 2024.

Good Deals for April 2024

These are some of our top picks for the month. We’ll generally try to go for longer business-class flights as compared to short economy-class flights when redeeming our miles to fully maximise their value.

We do not have any exceptional or shocker routes for this month. Most of the better business-class deals revolve around routes to the ANZ region.

What Card to Use For Fees?

When redeeming award flights, you’ll usually have to pay a small fee for taxes and tariffs. Although these typically do not go for more than S$100 for Singapore Airlines, it’ll still be good if we can optimise our spending here.

Below are some of our favourite credit cards to use to pay for taxes and fees when redeeming award flights on Singapore Airlines.
