KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes

KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes February 2024

This month’s special edition of Spontaneous Escapes is here! In addition to the longer than usual travel period and the longer than usual list of cities, it contains some rare cities in Japan, South Africa and New Zealand!

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.

This month’s Spontaneous Escapes is especially exciting as it coincides with KrisFlyer’s 25th Anniversary celebrations. As a teaser, it was noted earlier that this month’s edition of the promotion will include travelling in both March and April.

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 29th February 2024 and fly between 1st March 2024 to 30th April 2024.

Good Deals for February 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.

This month’s Spontaneous Escapes contains some rare Pokemons, specifically to the Japanese cities of Nagoya and Fukuoka in Business class and Tokyo and Osaka in Economy. We’ve rarely seen Japan in Spontaneous Escapes before so this is quite incredible. However, there is a long blackout period for those cities from 1 March – 14 April which is the busy Sakura season.

In addition, we also see amazing KrisFlyer redemption cities like Johannesburg and Auckland make an appearance. Your miles go very far with these redemptions as the flights are more than 10 hours each. We’ve previously redeemed a Spontaneous Escapes promotion for Johannesburg so you can check out our full experience here.
