Singapore Airlines sweetens elite PPS Club frequent flyer tier

Singapore Airlines is rolling out a set of improvements to its exclusive PPS Club from 1 June 2017, impacting both the PPS and  Solitaire PPS tiers of the Star Alliance member's KrisFlyer frequent flyer program.

Bullet-points include non-expiry of KrisFlyer miles – priority access to Saver award redemption inventory – and free Preferred Seat selection when these high flyers slum it in premium economy or economy class on Singapore Airlines.

However, a new set of PPS Rewards benefits will offer additional incentives to travel in the premium cabins of Singapore Airlines and regional offshoot SilkAir such as double KrisFlyer miles, redemption discounts and one-class cabin upgrades for flights, all based on members reaching various levels of spend.

From 1 June 2018, qualifying for super-elite Solitaire PPS Club membership will be changed to S$50,000 of PPS Value (earned when PPS Club members travel in suites, first class or business class on Singapore Airlines, or business class on SilkAir) within a membership year.

Solitaire PPS Club membership renewal will also be pegged at S$50,000 of PPS Value per year.

"The introduction of these new features were made in response to feedback from PPS Club members, and are part of ongoing improvements to the PPS programme," said Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Mr Tan Kai Ping.

The rewards mish-mash that is KrisFlyer/PPS Club continues...

As much as I like this airline (and I have a Singapore 777-200 model on my desk, so quite a bit), I find this program very confusing. They'd probably get more business just by fixing the lounge situation in Singapore.

I qualified for Gold KF in Feb this year and will re qualify in July. My member year runs November to Oct so I will have hit Gold twice (possibly 3 times) in the same year and have no prospect of advancement as Im not able to fly business on the Syd-Sin-Syd legs where I earn all of my miles.In that sense I think it is a family mean spirited loyalty program. However can't help but like the airline a great deal (excluding their rubbish inflight wifi pricing !!)
