Singapore Airlines extends PPS Club & KrisFlyer Elite status, mileage expiry

Singapore Airlines has announced an extension to PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite statuses, rolling over Elite miles, and the pausing the expiration of miles in 2022. Here’s what to expect:

Extension of PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite Memberships, Rollover of Elite Miles

KrisFlyer Elite and PPS Club members with a status expiry date between March 2022 and February 2023 will automatically enjoy another 12 months at the same membership level. Elite miles earned by KrisFlyer Elite members, in the 12 months prior to the latest extension, will be credited back into their accounts after the extension. Elite miles earned during the previous membership qualification cycle will also count towards member requalification in the March 2023 to February 2024 cycle.

Extension of KrisFlyer Miles, PPS Rewards and KrisFlyer Milestone Rewards

In news that will please many Australians, KrisFlyer miles that expire in 2022 will be automatically extended by six months at a time, at the end of each month. Rewards earned from the PPS Rewards and KrisFlyer Milestone Rewards that are due to expire in 2022 will be extended to 31 December 2022.

New Benefits for Scoot Customers

From February 2022, KrisFlyer members also enjoy additional benefits when they fly on Scoot. PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite tier members can enjoy priority boarding, complimentary standard seat selection, an additional 5kg check-in baggage allowance with any baggage purchase, as well as 25% more KrisFlyer miles for every mile earned when travelling on Scoot flights.

In addition, KrisFlyer members can earn 2.5 Elite miles for every KrisFlyer mile earned from flying on Scoot, up from 1 Elite mile for every KrisFlyer mile. This enables members to upgrade to higher KrisFlyer membership tiers at a faster rate. SIA has also launched two new KrisFlyer Milestone Rewards, which can be enjoyed by members who have earned 1,000 and 2,500 Elite miles.

These initiatives are likely to be positively received by Australian KrisFlyer members who have been afforded very limited redemption opportunities over the course of the pandemic. It remains to be seen whether other similar airline programs – such as Asia Miles – will follow suit.
