Finally: Redeem Alaska Miles On Singapore Airlines (Full Award Chart)

by Chris Dong

While Alaska Airlines isn’t in a specific airline alliance, it has an incredibly diverse array of airline partners with its Mileage Plan program. There are a few sweet spots for redeeming Alaska miles, like on Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines, for example.

While Alaska and Singapore Airlines had a partnership since August 2017, it hasn’t been possible to redeem Alaska miles on Singapore Airlines…until now.

The Singapore award chart is now live on Alaska’s website. Here is the breakdown of the charts by region.

Booking Singapore Airlines With Alaska Miles

Singapore flights can be booked on Alaska’s website (unlike Cathay Pacific) and there are no surcharges or fees, except for a small partner booking fee.

While the redemption rates are not all that impressive, it’s still worth taking a look at. Keep in mind Singapore’s own KrisFlyer program is a transfer partner of all the US major credit card currencies. 

Since Alaska allows stopovers for free and counts China as the “Southeast Asia” region in some cases, it’s possible to fly more than nine hours in Singapore regional first class for 35,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles.

Intra-Asia availability looks excellent.

Unfortunately, while the award chart for India also shows 35,000 miles for first class, pricing out a routing like Beijing to Singapore to Delhi breaks out into two separate awards. Alaska might still be finalizing their award charts and region definitions.

Another decent option is 80,000 Alaska miles for business class on the fifth freedom route between Los Angeles and Tokyo. If you wanted to go onwards to Singapore, that would require another 20,000 miles in business class.

The Upshot

While many of these redemption rates are just okay, the option to use Alaska miles on Singapore Airlines is a fantastic development. Still, it’s a good idea to check award rates using Singapore’s own KrisFlyer program and by transferring from credit card points.
