Modifica??es no programa de milhagens KrisFlyer, da Singapore Airlines

Recebi um comunicado por email sobre mudan?as no Krisflyer, da Singapore Airlines.

SK Changes

Em resumo, eliminaram os 15% de desconto no resgate de milhas pelo website, removeram as sobretaxas de combust?vel para resgates de voos no metal Singapore Airlines, e modificaram a tabela de resgates.

Abaixo, o inteiro teor do comunicado:

Thank you for your support as a KrisFlyer member.

We conduct regular reviews to keep the KrisFlyer programme updated. Following a recent review, we will be making these changes:

    • Revisions to Saver Award levels in the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir Award Chart have been made to ensure that flight rewards remain sustainable yet competitive. We had last made adjustments to award levels in various zones in 2012.
    • The 15% discount for redemption and redemption upgrade bookings made through our website and mobile channels will be discontinued, and the same redemption fare will be applied across all channels.
    • Fuel and insurance surcharges will be removed from all redemption award tickets on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir operated flights.

The above changes and the revised Award Chart will be effective for redemption and redemption upgrade bookings ticketed on/after 23 March 2017.
What does this mean for me?

In this latest update, there will be an increase in the number of miles you will need to redeem for selected flights in certain zones. However, you can also expect to enjoy cash savings from the removal of fuel and insurance surcharges from the cost of your redemption ticket.

We have included some examples below to further illustrate what this may mean for you. You can also find more information and FAQs here.

Example 1: Singapore-Bangkok (one-way)
Example 2: Singapore-London (one-way)
We thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.

Conclus?o

Felizmente, as mudan?as n?o foram de todo ruim. A elimina??o do desconto para resgates online (ponto negativo) foi compensada pela extin??o da cobran?a das sobretaxas de combust?vel (ponto positivo). Acabou ficando?elas por elas. 😉

Vale lembrar que o Krisflyer ? parceiro dos cart?es de cr?dito American Express participantes do programa de recompensas Membership Rewards, e ? parceiro tamb?m de v?rios programas de recompensas de redes hoteleiras, como SPG, Le Club Accor Hotels etc.

Aqui no blog, acho que o leitor Carlos ? um dos que o usavam como principal – ou um dos principais – programa(s) de milhagens, o que mostra que esse programa pode ser uma alternativa aos programas brasileiros de milhagens, ao menos em se tratando de Star Alliance.
