Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes deals for January 2023 are live



It’s the middle of the month and that means that Singapore Airlines has published its latest set of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes deals and while this set is marginally better than the rubbish that was offered last month, we’re still not seeing the kind of deals that we saw pre pandemic and in the first set of spontaneous escapes following the lifting of pandemic restrictions.

Headline terms & conditions

  • Travel between 1 January and 31 January 2023 (blackout dates may apply)
  • Get a 30% discount on select award bookings
  • One-way and round-trip awards are permissible
  • Taxes and fees will be charged

Full terms and conditions are reproduced at the end of this post

The deals

Ordinarily and at this point, I remind readers that what they’ll see below are just examples of the deals that are being offered and that more deals may be available… but not this time.

Once again, there are so few deals being offered in this month’s KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes that I have published the full list.

Note: The costs you’ll see indicated below are for one-way travel excluding taxes and fees.

Bottom line

If you happen to need to travel to or from one of the destinations that are listed in this month’s Spontaneous Escapes, a 30% discount on award travel is probably going to seem like a nice deal to be offered.

If, however, you’ve been waiting for KrisFlyer to offer up some decent January Business Class discounts for travel to/from Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and/or Australia, you’re in for a big disappointment.
