Singapore Airlines has become the latest carrier in Asia-Pacific to begin partnering with professional driver service Blacklane, enabling members of its Krisflyer frequent-flyer programme to now earn miles when booking rides.
For every US$1, £1 or €1 members spend on a ride, they can now get two Krisflyer miles.
The rate is the same as what members of Malaysia Airlines’ Enrich and Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles miles-accrual programmes can earn with Blacklane, which has partnered with the two airlines’ programmes since last year.
“Singapore Airlines excels at providing high service standards, innovative products and a superior passenger experience around the world,” said Jens Wohltorf, Blacklane’s co-founder and CEO. “Blacklane extends this quality and brand promise to the ground.”
Blacklane expanded significantly in Asia-Pacific back in December 2016, adding 64 cities in 12 countries in the region to its network. The Berlin-based company currently serves more than 250 cities around the world.
In October last year, Singapore’s national carrier recently began partnering with ride-share company Grab. Krisflyer members can now convert their GrabRewards points to Krisflyer miles, as well as book rides in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam through the SingaporeAir mobile app.
Back in January, Singapore Airlines made a numerous revisions to its fare structures, privileges and award ticket conditions. To see a full breakdown of the changes, read our article below.
