Singapore Airlines extends PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite membership, eases renewal criteria

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has extended all PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite memberships by 12 months when they expire between March 2020 through to February 2021.

For memberships that expire between March 2021 and February 2022, SIA will credit 50 per cent of the PPS Value as Reserve Value or Elite miles required for renewal into the PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite members’ accounts respectively. 

As a result, PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite members need to accrue only half of the PPS Value or Elite miles required during the membership year to retain their statuses, the national carrier said in a press satement.

In addition, from today until October 15, PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite members can earn PPS Value or Elite miles on non-air spend and activities. This will also count towards their renewal of their membership statuses.  

During the Covid-19 pandemic, SIA has introduced several initiatives to support its members. This includes extending the validity of all PPS Rewards and Elite Gold Rewards that are due to expire in 2020 to March 2021.

The validity of KrisFlyer Elite miles that were expiring between April and December 2020 have also been extended by between six to 12 months. PPS Club Gift Vouchers issued in 2019 have had their validity period extended through to December 2020.

“We are very grateful to our PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite members, who have shown unwavering support for Singapore Airlines throughout this unprecedented crisis," said JoAnn Tan, Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, SIA.

"By making it easier for them to renew their membership status, we hope to both allay their concerns and show our appreciation for their loyalty.”
