The Travelcene Directory of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes Deals


Every month, Singapore Airlines releases discounted award space (redeeming flights with miles instead of paying with cash) for flights departing within the next month. For example, SQ recently released July 2018’s list on 18 Jun, requiring members to travel between 1 - 31 July and to book their flights by 30 Jun.

The KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes are deals that usually come in the form of a 30% discount on the miles needed to redeem flights and encompasses both Economy and Business Class tickets. 

The list of destinations available for redemption changes every month, but there is usually a healthy range of options available for destinations in Asia, Oceania and Europe. However, expect popular months like June and December to feature fewer options to choose from.  

This article will serve as a consolidated directory for readers to keep tabs on the month’s latest promotion and to compare availability and discounts between months.
