Turning your Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles into a business class seat and first class suite will require more miles from this month, with the Singaporean flag-carrier boosting the cost of Saver-category award flights out of Australia.
The 15% discount for making your frequent flyer redemption booking online rather than over the phone has also been axed.
However, fuel and insurance surcharges will no longer be added to KrisFlyer award bookings.
The changes kick in on March 23, 2017, although miles-based award bookings made and ticketed before March 23 will escape the hike.
There's no change to the Standard award rates for flights from Australia to Singapore or Europe – but if you're looking to snare a cheaper Saver award flight, here's the uplift.
Who'll pay more, and how much...
Business class flights between Australia (excluding Perth and Darwin) and Singapore bump from 55,000 KrisFlyer miles to 58,000 miles, with first class and A380 suites bookings nudging from 75,000 miles to 80,000 miles.
Economy Saver awards rise from 25,000 miles to 28,000 miles, with no change in the number of KrisFlyer miles needed for a premium economy booking.
No change either for flyers from Perth or Darwin, whose redemption rates remain the same if they're headed to Singapore.
Going all the way to the UK or Europe?
First class and Suites awards from Australia (excluding Perth and Darwin) and Singapore go from 132,500 KrisFlyer miles to 148,000 miles; business class rates are up from 95,000 miles to 105,000 miles; and economy from 47,500 miles to 53,000 miles.
Perth and Darwin don't escape that increase, with a business class bump from 85,000 KrisFlyer miles to 95,000 miles, and economy up from 40,000 miles to 43,000 miles.
The changes are part of a broader overhaul of SQ's fare structure which will also see fuel and insurance surcharges progressively folded into base fares from late March through to May 2017.
