SIA, SilkAir roll out new miles & cash payment options

SINGAPORE - Customers of Singapore Airlines (SIA) and SilkAir can now use their KrisFlyer miles to pay for flights booked through the SIA website.

They can now mix miles and cash to pay for their airfare, including payment for fuel charges and taxes.

The changes from Thursday mean that travellers need not worry about chalking up enough miles for a full flight before they expire.

"We have listened (to feedback) and are pleased to offer another option for KrisFlyer members to use their miles for travel on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir," said SIA's executive vice-president commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah.
