Benefits include double KrisFlyer miles reward, short-haul advance upgrade, as well as premium economy advance upgrade.
The Singapore flag carrier has launched a new “Elite Gold Rewards” program for its KrisFlyer Gold members. Benefits, including complimentary flight upgrades and additional bonus miles, are meant to reward them for their continued loyalty.
That said, not all KrisFlyer Gold cardholders will get to enjoy these perks. Instead, they come as an extra reward for travelers who clock a significant amount of “Elite miles” on both Singapore Airlines and SilkAir.
Here’s what eligible KrisFlyer Gold members can look forward to:
Double KrisFlyer miles reward
KrisFlyer members who earn 60,000 Elite miles on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights in a single year (excluding Elite miles earned on other flights, such as on Star Alliance partners) will qualify for one double KrisFlyer miles reward. This voucher can be traded in to earn twice the usual number of KrisFlyer miles on a single flight segment of your choosing.
Short-haul advance upgrade
Simply accumulate 75,000 Elite miles on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights yearly and you’ll also qualify for one yearly ‘short-haul advance upgrade’, providing a one-class cabin upgrade on a flight of your choosing, subject to availability.
In order to be eligible for an upgrade, members need to be booked in business class on a Z, C, J or U fare (for a first-class upgrade, where available); in premium economy on an S, T or P airfare (for a business class upgrade); or in economy on a Y, B, E, M, H or W fare (for a premium economy upgrade).
Premium economy advance upgrade
Frequent flyers who are able to amass 100,000 Elite miles with Singapore Airlines and SilkAir in a single year can enjoy one premium economy advance upgrade to be used on any Singapore Airlines flight, including long flights between Australia and Singapore or Singapore and Europe.
