Singapore Airlines and Virgin America Expand Frequent Flyer Partnership

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

Singapore Airlines and Virgin America announced that they have strengthenedtheir codeshare agreement, bolstering their frequent flyer partnership. Under the expansion, members of the airlines’ loyalty programs will be able to redeem their frequent flyer points or travel miles on either airline.

Travelers can now book travel rewards across the combined network. The two carriers launched their initial codeshare agreement in December 2012, allowing Singapore Airlines customers to book a single ticket for people traveling between Asia and many Virgin America destinations in the U.S.

The new partnership increases the international choices that Virgin America’s Elevate members can take advantage of because they now have access to Singapore Airlines’ network across Asia. Members of Singapore Airlines’ PPS Club and KrisFlyer now have access to popular destinations across the United States. Singapore Airlines is the fourth airline to join Virgin America’s Elevate® frequent flyer program.

To commemorate the new partnership, Virgin America announced the “Win a Stylish Ride on Singapore Airlines” promotion. One Elevate member will win two round-trip economy class tickets on a Singapore Airlines flight if they fly between Los Angeles (LAX) and Tokyo (NRT), San Francisco (SFO) and Seoul (ICN) or San Francisco (SFO) and Hong Kong. Members will earn 500 reward points for entering the contest. They can sign up on Virgin America’s Facebook page.

Singapore Airlines and Virgin America have accumulated a collection of distinguished awards for their service.  For the past 17 years, whenTravel + Leisure magazine inaugurated its world rankings, it has regularly named Singapore Airlines the “World’s Best Airline.”  Conde Nast Traveler has put Singapore Airlines at the top of its list of foreign carriers for 24 of the last 25 years.  Every year since its launch in 2007, Virgin America has dominatedmajor travel awards. For five years straight, Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards named it the “Best U.S. Airline” and Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards has called it the “Best Domestic Airline.”

Members of Singapore Airlines’ PPS Club and KrisFlyer loyalty frequent flyer programs can earn KrisFlyer miles whenthey travel on Virgin America flights and will be able to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for award travel on Virgin America routes. Members of Virgin America’s frequent flyer program, Elevate, are now able to earn points when they travel with Singapore Airlines. They will also be able to redeem Elevate points for international reward flights on all Singapore Airlines flights.
