Our partner airlines may calculate Elite miles in a different way, so if you want to be sure, it’s best to ask them before you book.
For mix miles and cash bookings, the number of KrisFlyer miles, Elite miles and PPS Value you earn will be in proportion to the fare that you've paid with your credit/debit card (excluding taxes). If the full fare is paid with KrisFlyer miles, no KrisFlyer miles, Elite miles and PPS Value will be earned. More in FAQs.
Tier bonuses and promotional bonuses do not count as Elite miles. Elite miles will not be earned if you do not credit your miles to a KrisFlyer account or if the flight is on a non-mileage accruable fare.
