More about redeeming your KrisFlyer miles


Top-up the miles you need for an award ticket


If you have at least 50% of the KrisFlyer miles required to redeem for an award ticket, you may purchase the additional miles required to top-up your KrisFlyer account at US$40 (or the local currency equivalent) per block of 1,000 miles, using your credit card.

The top-up miles can be purchased while you are making your online redemption booking.

The purchase is effected immediately if the transaction is done online.

To top up offline, please download and complete the Miles Top-up Request form. Turnaround time for offline miles top-up is more than 3 days.


Redemption Nominees


As a KrisFlyer member, you can nominate as many as five family members or friends (who may or may not be KrisFlyer members) for whom you can redeem your KrisFlyer miles for flight awards.

Simply login to your KrisFlyer Account under My Profile to make your nominations online.


Redeeming KrisFlyer miles for members 17 years of age and below


KrisFlyer members under 12 years of age are not eligible to redeem their miles for award tickets online, unless a Redemption Nominee 18 years old or above is travelling with him/her on the same flight.

KrisFlyer members 17 years of age and below are not eligible to redeem their miles online for third party award tickets, that is, redeem their miles for the travel of their nominees when they themselves are not travelling, as third party bookings are subjected to additional terms and conditions.
