KrisFlyer Members Can Now Earn Miles On Scoot and Tigerair
|Members of the KrisFlyer frequent flyer programme can now earn miles when flying on Scoot and Tigerair, in the latest enhancement to the programme.|
With effect from today, KrisFlyer members can accrue miles when they purchase a PlusPerks bundle or FlexiCombo fare for their flights on Scoot and Tigerair, respectively. The option for KrisFlyer members to redeem miles for vouchers for travel on Scoot and Tigerair, or to pay for selected products offered by the two low-cost carriers, was made available earlier this year.
"Scoot and Tigerair are important partners in the Singapore Airlines Group's portfolio of airlines. We are pleased to now be offering our members the opportunity to not only redeem miles for travel on Scoot and Tigerair, but to earn miles as well," said Singapore Airlines' Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Ms Lee Wen Fen.
"KrisFlyer is committed to delivering on our promise to constantly making it more exciting and rewarding to be a KrisFlyer member with the range of partners we have now."
Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson added: "PlusPerks, a new bundle of benefits including KrisFlyer mileage accrual, priority check-in and boarding, preferred seat selection and ticket flexibility, delivers Scoot's commitment to choice and unbeatable value. PlusPerks gives you all the more reason to 'get outta here' with Scoot."
Tigerair CEO Lee Lik Hsin commented: "FlexiCombo delivers a unique bundle of popular add-ons, flexibility and mileage accrual that will appeal to both leisure and business travellers alike. We are glad to deepen our relationship with the KrisFlyer programme by offering the opportunity for KrisFlyer members to accrue miles when flying Tigerair."
The PlusPerks bundle enables Scoot customers to earn KrisFlyer miles on eligible fares, enjoy preferred seat selection with extra legroom, access priority check-in and fast boarding privileges and make one date or name change with administrative fees waived.
Tigerair customers can enjoy 15kg checked-in baggage, free upfront seat selection, KrisFlyer miles accrual and one-time fee waiver on date change with the FlexiCombo fare.
KrisFlyer is Singapore Airlines' frequent flyer programme. KrisFlyer members can earn miles when they travel on Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, partner airlines on Star Alliance, as well as other airline partners including Virgin Australia, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin America. KrisFlyer also collaborates extensively with over 170 non-airline partners worldwide ranging from banks to hotels, travel services and retail, so members can continue to earn miles for rewards even when they are not flying.
KrisFlyer members can redeem their miles for award flights on over 30 world-class airlines to more than 1,000 destinations in 170 countries. KrisFlyer miles can also be redeemed for upgrades to Singapore Airlines Suites, First Class or Business Class on Singapore Airlines, and to Business Class on Singapore Airlines' regional carrier, SilkAir.
