Singapore Airlines has launched High Flyer for small business offering Points rewards for spend.
This scheme is primarily designed for businesses with up to 30 staff – if you have more you can opt for the Singapore Airlines Corporate Travel Programme instead. High Flyer Points are earned when you or your employees fly with Singapore Airlines and Silk Air (Star Alliance flights, Scoot and Tigerair are not included) as long as they are also KrisFlyer members.
High Flyer accounts will earn 5 High Flyer Points per $1 only on the ticket cost (taxes and government fees are excluded) as shown here:
Your employees will also earn their usual KrisFlyer Miles and status miles as long as they credit the flights to Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer.
There’s no fee for the program so if you have a small business or are a sole trader I’d sign-up right away as there’s no downside, and with the Points lasting 3 years even with infrequent flights you’ll be able to redeem at some point:
What is a High Flyer Point Worth?
High Flyer Points are worth exactly 1 cent when they are redeemed for flights, and you can mix cash and High Flyer Points for redemptions as long as you have at least 3,000 Points to redeem. As you receive 5 per $1 the programme is effectively a 5% rebate for flights taken on Singapore Airlines.
Here are some examples that Singapore Airlines gave:
Conclusions on the Singapore Airlines High Flyer Scheme
I think this is great news for small businesses that regularly send their employees on Singapore Airlines flights as the effective 5% rebate will help everyone’s bottom line.
What small businesses will have to consider is whether this incentive is enough to fly with Singapore Airlines instead of other potentially cheaper carriers. Singapore Airlines is frequently more than 5% more expensive than other carriers so it might not be enough for the cost conscious business.
