Default Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Status Extensions Due To Coronavirus Outbreak

It seems some Krisflyer Elite Gold members whose membership expire this month receive below notifications from SQ : -

Quote
Thank you for your support of Singapore Airlines over the years.

In view of the COVID-19 situation, we will be renewing your Elite Gold status for another membership year. The new membership year will start from 28 February 2020.

If you have successfully accrued sufficient Elite miles before 28 February 2020, your membership will be automatically renewed for another year.

The new membership validity period will be reflected in your digital card on the SingaporeAir mobile app after 1 March 2020. Your membership kit, including your membership card with the new validity period, will take approximately 8-10 weeks after your status renewal on 1 March 2020 to reach you, due to a disruption in our card production supply chain.

In the interim, you can still enjoy your membership benefits using your digital card. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Once again, we thank you for your support and hope you will enjoy your Elite Gold privileges in the year ahead.

Yours Sincerely, KrisFlyer Membership Services

Interesting and a good gesture. Most of this travel restriction I expect Mar 1 onwards so if status is attained by Feb 29th, they should extend through Feb 2022

I donít get it, does it mean that theyíre extending the KFEG statuses for those whose memberships expire in Feb EVEN IF they havenít accrued enough elite miles?

My membership expires end April. Ordinarily Iíd be travelling plenty in Feb/mar and will earn the required 50k. But obviously travel has been affected and Iím stuck at 30k elite miles now. Doesnít look possible to travel as planned before KFEG expires. So Iím wondering if the goodwill extension for another year will be offered 😂

Just received email from SQ that I have been given KFEG.

Previously was silver when I didn't manage to retain KFEG status when I missed the renewal mileage by about 12k miles.

I got that same email. But has anyone actually had their status expiry updated from 2021 to 2022? Mine still says it expires 02/2021

Think this is covered in point 4, table 1?

Current membership expiry month: Feb 2021
New membership cycle will be reflected in the SingaporeAir mobile app digital card by: 8 March 2021

SIA has improved its Reserve Value adjustment for PPS Club members.

Instead of getting a top-up to the renewal threshold, you'll now get 25,000 or 50,000 Reserve Value on top of whatever you have accrued, meaning if a PPS Club member has already got 25,000 value from flying, that amount will be carried over into the next membership year.

By default that means those who already qualified for renewal this year will have a two-year extension.

Thanks for posting this Mainly Miles. I noticed this in my account as my year just ended and was looking for some official announcement from SQ.

Quite generous all things considered.

My KFEG status expires in April 21, 2021 and by the looks of the work Covid-19 & vaccination situation, I do not think I will be able to maintain KFEG. I hope that SQ will consider allowing the use of KF Miles as payment to maintain KFEG status.

Default Another membership year renewal

Seems like a nice New Year 2021 present from SQ!

They will be giving another year membership renewal for PPS and Krisflyer Elite members.

This means the 50% contribution from SQ towards renewal this year will no longer happen as it is not necessary anymore.

Guess it helps not having to worry about getting enough Elite miles this year.

Not sure they had much choice to be honest...

Dear Mr MAN Flyer,

As we welcome the new year, we would like to share some updates to the PPS Club programme with you.

EXTENSION OF YOUR PPS CLUB MEMBERSHIP FOR A SECOND YEAR

The past year has been a challenging time for everyone, with mass disruptions to travel plans due to unprecedented border closures. Given the lack of flying opportunities in the past year, Singapore Airlines will automatically extend your PPS Club membership for another 12 months at the end of your membership year which is due between March 2021 and February 2022Ļ.

Any PPS Value earned in your current membership cycle will be credited as Reserve Value at the time of membership extension.

Your PPS Club membership card which would reflect a validity period ending between April 2021 and March 2022≤ will continue to be valid and recognised by SIA and our partners worldwide for another 12 months from the validity date on the membership card. For example, if the "Card Expiry" date on your membership card is April 2021, the card will now be valid till April 2022.

Alternatively, you can access your digital membership card using the SingaporeAir mobile app. The validity period on your digital card will be updated to reflect your extended membership period after your membership year has been extended.

As existing cards continue to be recognised, we will not be sending a new membership kit to you when your membership is extended between March 2021 and February 2022.

EXTENSION OF VALIDITY PERIOD OF EXPIRING RESERVE VALUE

Reserve Value that are expiring between March 2021 and February 2023 will also have their validity period extended to expire between March 2023 and February 2024. For more details, please click here.


ADDITIONAL BENEFITS WHEN FLYING ON SCOOT

As the rewards programme of the SIA Group, we have expanded the benefits that PPS Club members can enjoy when you travel on Scoot. We are pleased to share that from February 2021, you can look forward to the following benefits when flying with Scoot, including priority check-in and boarding≥, additional 5kg baggage allowance with any baggage purchase, one-time complimentary booking change and complimentary standard seat selection.

Thank you for your strong support and loyalty. We hope to be able to welcome you onboard our flights in 2021.

Yours sincerely,



Ryan Pua
Vice President Loyalty Marketing


Ļ This complimentary extension will supersede the earlier renewal support scheme initiative for PPS Club members introduced on 1 September 2020.

≤ Members with membership extension due in December 2020, January 2021 and February 2021 will receive their new membership cards with card validity till January 2022, February 2022 and March 2022 respectively, after their respective membership extension.

≥ Due to the Covid-19 situation, priority check-in and boarding are currently not available until further notice.
