Singapore Airlines and Virgin America announced they will expand their partnership to incorporate frequent flyer programs in addition to their existing codeshare agreement.  The new joint program will allow flyers to earn and redeem points and miles on both airlines’ flights.

Members of Singapore’s PPS Club and KrisFlyer loyalty programs will be able to earn and redeem miles on all Virgin America flights.  In addition, Virgin America Elevate members will be able to earn and redeem Elevate points on all Singapore Airlines-operated routes.

In celebration of the new frequent flyer program partnership, Virgin America launched a contest for Elevate members to win two round-trip economy class tickets on a Singapore Airlines route, including Los Angeles-Tokyo, San Francisco-Seoul, or San Francisco-Hong Kong.  Members can enter the promotion on Virgin America’s Facebook page, and will earn 500 points upon entry.

The two airlines began their codeshare agreement in December of last year.  Since then, Singapore Airlines passengers have been able to book connecting Virgin America flights using a single ticket with the Singapore Airlines code.
