Singapore Airlines to Eliminate Fuel Surcharges on Award Redemptions
Singapore Airlines announced it will make three significant changes to its KrisFlyer frequent flyer program later this month.
The flag carrier, whose hub is at Singapore Changi Airport, said it will eliminate fuel surcharges on all Singapore and SilkAir award redemptions.
In addition, it is eliminating the 15% online booking discount it has offered on award bookings and upgrades made through its website or app, and it is raising the number of miles required for Saver Awards, although the increase is relatively modest and likely to be more than offset by the elimination of the fuel surcharges.
“You can also expect to enjoy savings in the amount of cash you would need to pay for your redemption ticket due to the removal of fuel and insurance surcharges,” the airline said on its website.
The changes are effective for bookings ticketed on or after March 23, 2017. SilkAir is a regional carrier owned by Singapore Airlines.
