Singapore Airlines has announced the third successive extension of KrisFlyer Elite (and PPS Club) status. This follows the previous one-year extensions announced in 2020, and 2021. The extension is sure to be welcome news to members who still find themselves largely grounded by the pandemic.
2023-2024 Status Extension
The new extension applies to all KrisFlyer Elite (and PPS Club) members whose status runs out between March 2022 and February 2023. Anyone with an expiry date over those 12 months will gain an additional 12 months at the same tier.
As such, if your membership year comes up in February, you will keep your current status through to February 2024.
On top of that, any Elite Miles earned during the year will be rolled over into the new year. This is good news for those that managed to renew their status under their own steam. Those Elite Miles will now apply to renewal for the following year.
If you are looking to go up a tier, the rollover of elite miles will give you a head start in your new membership year.
Krisflyer will also be extending the validity of any expiring KrisFlyer miles you have in your account. Any KrisFlyer miles expiring during 2022 will have their validity extended by 6 months. In some cases, that will see their expiration date extended twice during the year.
For example, if you have points expiring in February, they will first be extended until August. When August comes around, if you haven’t used the points, they will be further extended to February next year.
New KrisFlyer Milestone Rewards
KrisFlyer is introducing two new milestone rewards. At present, the first milestone reward kicks in at 5,000 Elite Miles. The two new rewards fit in with lower requirements.
At 1,000 Elite Miles, you will become eligible for 1,000 bonus KrisFlyer miles on your next Scoot flight. At 2,500 Elite Miles, you will get a 20% Discount voucher for selected Scoot fares.
Finally, KrisFlyer elite members will be gaining additional benefits when flying Scoot. These benefits include
- priority boarding,
- complimentary standard seat selection,
- an additional 5kg check-in baggage allowance with any baggage purchase,
- 25% more KrisFlyer miles for every mile earned when travelling on Scoot flights.
