It is possible to redeem KrisFlyer Miles for Scoot and Tigerair Flights, but is it one of the better or worse redemption options? We check it out.
I originally posted about the launch of earning and redeeming Scoot and Tigerair on Singapore Airlines when it was announced and we now know the redemption rates. You can check out the announcement post below, and for the information on redemptions I’ve also included the Singapore Airlines link:
Is It Worth Redeeming KrisFlyer Miles for Scoot or Tigerair Flights?
Singapore Airlines chose a voucher redemption method rather than using award charts like the rest of its partners. The advantage of this is that you don’t need to worry about award availability, so its much more straightforward and good for those that want to avoid hassle.
You can redeem at the following rates:
|Voucher value||Miles required to redeem|
The value for the redemptions vary and you get slightly more as the value of the voucher increases:
$30 = 0.93 cents per Mile
$50 = 0.94 cents per Mile
$100 = 0.95 cents per Mile
Compared to other redemption options the value is very poor. You can easily get redemptions at around the 2 cents per mile mark and even without any effort you can redeem directly for Singapore Airlines or Silk Air flights for 1 cent per mile using Pay With KrisFlyer Miles option.
I suggest you check out these guides for more information:
