Singapore Airlines increases award seat and upgrade costs, changes stopover rules

Singapore Airlines is increasing the number of KrisFlyer miles required for flight redemptions and upgrades from 5 July 2022.

Increases will be made to the cheapest Saver Award seats on all sectors, with minor adjustments to the more expensive Advantage Award levels on selected sectors when flying with Singapore Airlines.

On average, Saver prices are going up by around 10%. For example, a one-way Saver business class fare from Perth to Europe goes from 121,000 miles to 133,500 miles – an increase of 12,500 miles or 10.3%.

Award seats with partner airlines and upgrades with Singapore Airlines are going up by a similar amount.

If you have an existing booking and you need to change it, do so before 5 July otherwise the new pricing will apply.

The revised pricing will also apply to confirmed waitlist bookings ticketed on or after 5 July 2022. There’s no way to expedite those, unfortunately.

The airline is also changing stopover rules. Until now, you could pay $100 to add a stopover on a one-way Saver booking (eg. you could book a flight from Sydney to Europe, and pay for a stopover in Singapore). This option is being eliminated.

For one-way Advantage bookings or return Saver bookings, you can still enjoy stopovers for free. However, the stopover will now be limited to 30 days.

If you have an award booking or upgrade in mind, consider locking in the new pricing before the changes kick in on 5 July.
