Singapore KrisFlyer Devaluation Coming Next Month

Singapore Airlines revealed today upcoming changes to its KrisFlyer program. The airline will revise the miles required for flight redemptions and upgrades with effect from July 5th, 2022. There’s also an important change to stopover rules.

As you might guess, this revision is actually a devaluation across the board, but at least it’s not that terrible. Also the airline is giving us a heads up, so you can still book now at current award pricing, for a future travel.

Awards

Award pricing on Singapore Airlines flights is going up about 10-15%. so for example, when looking at travel from East Coast (Zone 13) to Europe (Zone 11), the pricing will change as follows for each fare class:

One-way Saver Awards (East Coast to Europe)
Class Through 7/5 Starting 7/5
Economy 22,500 25,000
Premium Economy 47,000 52,000
Business 72,000 81,000
First 86,000 97,000

 

Pricing for Star Alliance awards is also going up. Awards will cost about 10% more starting on July 5th. The same goes for upgrades on Singapore Airlines flights.

You can see the current chart here, and the new chart, provided by Mainly Miles.

Stopovers

One major change is the stopover policy, which was quite generous. For now you can add a stopover between 1 day to 1 year, for just an extra $100. There’s are some other details that you need to worry about, but it is a quite useful option.

Now, stopovers for eligible redemption bookings ticketed on or after August 1, 2022 will be limited to a maximum of 30 days. Complimentary stopovers exceeding 30 days, as well as the paid stopover option, will no longer be available for tickets issued on or after August 1, 2022.

Conclusion

Singapore Airlines will devalue its KrisFlyer program on July 5th. Awards are going up about 10% and as much as 15% in some cases. That’s no a huge price hike, but it’s still a devaluation.

There’s also a major change to the stopover policy, which might be a huge negative for those who were taking advantage of that trick.

  1. Anyone else sitting on a pile of Singapore Miles, thanks to Asia being off-limit most of ’20 & ’21?
    266k and trying to burn them before clock runs out. Talk about timing, I moved them in Jan ’20. Had found 2 seats for my ideal routing, then Covid reared its ugly head. Oh well.

    • I’m not sure where you’re based but if you’re flying to or from the USA there’s pretty good business class award space from New York to Singapore (and beyond) if you book for next year.
