Singapore Airlines will now extend all KrisFlyer and PPS Club members' elite status by 12 months as frequent flyers continue to face travel restrictions around the globe.
Following the airline's initial status extension offer in February 2020, where only those with status expiring that month received a one-year boost, this will be automatically applied to all KrisFlyer Elite and PPS Club memberships expiring from March 2020 through to February 2021 – which means some will hold their renewed status all the way to February 2022.
In addition, the validity of any expiring PPS and Elite Gold Rewards will also be extended until 31 March 2021.
"This is a small token of our appreciation for your loyalty and support, which we value greatly as we work hard to get through this outbreak," said Singapore Airlines CEO Mr Goh Choon Phong.
"It remains unclear when the Covid-19 outbreak will be brought under control. But when it does, you can be sure that we will be ready to welcome you back on board and deliver, once again, the exceptional service that you have come to expect and are familiar with."
While most people and businesses have drawn back international travel over the past month, those continuing to fly have faced increased difficulties in doing so, with Singapore Airlines slashing capacity by 96% until at least the end of April 2020.
Singapore itself has closed its borders to international visitors and transit travellers, a move that follows international travel restrictions and bans imposed by other countries, in turn affecting many of Singapore Airlines' flights and routes.
