Book Singapore Awards with Alaska Miles
Alaska Airlines miles have one redemption option. You can now use them for awards on Singapore operated flights.
Alaska Airlines and Singapore Airlines announced their partnership back in 2017. But implementation has been very slow. Reciprocal mileage earning started a couple of month after and then you were able to redeem Singapore miles for Alaska Airlines flights. But it took a long time for Alaska Airlines miles to become redeemable for Singapore Airlines flights.
Nonetheless that day is here. You can even redeem Alaska miles for Singapore’s business class and first class suites.
Alaska has posted award charts for Singapore redemptions between US and Asia:
And within Asia:
These are prices for one way awards. So this will probably not be the first option that will come to mind to those with large amounts of Alaska miles. But having yet another redemption opportunity is always good news.
The ability to redeem miles for Singapore operated flights adds more value to the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program. The award prices are not very attractive though as it can cost as much as 260,000 miles for a round trip to Asia in First Class.
If you want to fly Singapore, it’s a better idea to transfer points from any of the four major currency programs, Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou or Capital One.
