KrisFlyer Elite Gold

Go for Gold

KrisFlyer Elite Gold

There’s a place where the bustle of the airport fades into bliss. It’s called the lounge. There are more than 1,000 of them around the world, and your KrisFlyer Elite Gold card gets you in. Along with priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling. And an additional check-in baggage allowance.

Little wonder more frequent flyers are going for KrisFlyer Elite Gold.


Upgrade to Elite Gold

All it takes is 50,000 Elite miles, earned within 12 consecutive months, to get to KrisFlyer Elite Gold. You will be upgraded within the next day* and your membership will last until the end of the 12th month.

Earn 50,000 Elite miles during this time and you’ll have Elite Gold for another year.

*After you have successfully accrued 50,000 Elite miles, it will take up to 1 day for your membership to be upgraded to Elite Gold. Any Elite miles in excess of the 50,000 required for qualification before this upgrade takes place will not count towards membership renewal.

Or even easier, let the Accrual Calculator work it out for you.

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.
