Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will be introducing a new airfare pricing structure next month, with revisions to advance seat selection, frequent flyer programme mileage accrual rates, baggage allowance, and change and refund flexibility for some fare types.
The new fare types will be introduced on 20 January 2018 for all tickets sold worldwide. Depending on the class of travel, customers will have up to three types of airfare to choose from when making a booking. Each will offer a combination of fare, feature and flexibility options, to provide clearer choices to customers to better fit different travel needs.
Three new fare types will be introduced for Economy Class bookings, named ‘Lite’, ‘Standard’ and ‘Flexi’.
Baggage allowance will increase to 35kg for the highest-category Flexi fares while it will remain at 30kg for Lite and Standard fares.
Advance seat selection, which is currently available for all Economy Class bookings at no charge, will be chargeable for Lite fares, starting from USD5 per flight segment. It will still be available in advance at no charge for families with children (12 years old and under) in the same booking.
No charges will apply for advance seat selection for Standard and Flexi fare types, although a new category of Forward Zone seats, which are in higher demand, will be chargeable for Standard fares. Charges will also continue to apply for Extra Legroom seats, which were previously known as Preferred seats.
All customers regardless of fare type will be able to make seat selection at no charge during the Internet check-in window up to 48hr in advance of travel, subject to availability.
Complimentary advance seat selection will be available regardless of fare type for PPS Club members (Standard, Forward Zone and Extra Legroom seats), as well as for KrisFlyer Elite Gold members (Standard and Forward Zone seats) and KrisFlyer Elite Silver members (Standard seats).
