You can earn KrisFlyer Miles and Elite Miles on Scoot!
KrisFlyer, the loyalty program for the Singapore Airlines Group, allows members to earn miles not only when flying with Singapore Airlines but also with over 30 partner airlines, including Scoot. With its broad network of over 450 lifestyle partners, you can earn miles even when grounded.
When you book with Scoot, simply log in with your KrisFlyer account to start accumulating miles. Here’s a breakdown of the earning potential:
- Travel on Scoot flights and earn 1 mile for every SGD$1 spent. Note, that exclusions do apply.
- For mixed itineraries, such as those that include a segment not operated by Scoot, miles are earned based on route and fare type.
From 17 January 2022, you can earn 2.5 Elite miles for every KrisFlyer mile when flying on Scoot. These Elite miles help you progress towards achieving the next KrisFlyer membership tier, such as Elite Silver and Elite Gold.
Earning KrisFlyer miles on Scoot flights presents a valuable opportunity for travelers. While the reward may not seem substantial, it’s undoubtedly a step above nothing. However, for maximum value, consider saving your KrisFlyer miles for premium redemptions, such as Singapore Airlines First or Business Class flights.
1. Can Scoot passengers use KrisFlyer Lounge?
Currently, there’s no information regarding Scoot passengers’ access to KrisFlyer Lounge. It’s best to check directly with Singapore Airlines for lounge access criteria.
2. How do I get KrisFlyer miles immediately?
While you earn KrisFlyer miles for each flight, the crediting of these miles may take a few days. Ensure that you’ve provided your KrisFlyer membership details during the booking process. For immediate concerns, contacting Singapore Airlines directly would be the best approach.
3. Can I claim KrisFlyer miles retrospectively?
If you forgot to log in during your Scoot booking and have already taken your flight, don’t worry! You can submit a retroactive mileage claim within 6 months of your flight date. However, if you haven’t flown yet, simply key in your KrisFlyer number before your flight when managing your booking. It’s important to note that while you won’t earn PPS Value for Scoot-operated flights, you will earn Elite miles.
If your miles from Scoot flights aren’t showing up in your KrisFlyer account, be patient. It can take up to 8 weeks post-flight for the miles to be credited. To check the status, log in to the SQ website and navigate to your Profile > KrisFlyer Statements. If you still don’t see them, you can submit a Retro mileage claim for missing miles.
For any Scoot flight or ticket-related queries, it’s best to contact Scoot’s Hotline. When it comes to retrospective mile claims, only bookings made through official Scoot channels like their website, mobile app, Facebook Chatbot, SkyAgent, and GDSes are eligible. Third-party platform bookings via API are not eligible. Lastly, if a friend made the booking for you, they can add your KrisFlyer membership number to the booking. Once added, you’ll see the booking details in your account and can make any necessary changes. However, any changes will also be reflected in your friend’s booking.
