An introduction to Singapore Airlines – KrisFlyer, Award Chart, Award Availability, Fuel Surcharges & Destinations

Posted on July 16, 2014 by in Airline Reviews

Airline Name: Singapore Airlines

Frequent-flyer program: KrisFlyer

KrisFlyer is the primary loyalty program of Singapore Airlines and these subsidiaries:

Scoot
SilkAir
Singapore Airlines Cargo

Alliance: Star Alliance

Krisflyer is the only program that gives you access to Singapore Airlines Business and First Class on a reliable basis on most routes.

It is also the program that many of us will hopefully hold a significant amount of miles in since the shopping mall deal.

Award Chart

KrisFlyer Award Chart

There are separate award charts for redeeming on:

Virgin America
Virgin Atlantic
Virgin Australia

Partner airlines

Singapore Airlines partners with all Star Alliance partners and a few selected non-Star Alliance partners:

Fuel surcharges applied?

Singapore applies fuel surcharges on its own flights and most partners. You can estimate the fuel surcharges by using ITA Matrix to find the flight you want (as if you were booking a paid flight).

However, no fuel surcharges are collected for partners that charge no YQ/YR. Notably these included non-transatlantic United Airlines (UA) flights, Air India (AI) and LOT Polish Airlines (LO).

Fuel surcharges on many Singapore Airlines flights are low so they often make a good redemption.

How to find award availability?

The best way to find availability is the ANA site or united.com for Star Alliance. When searching for Singapore Airlines Business and First Class flights you will need to use http://www.singaporeair.com as they are the only ones showing it.
