You can now earn KrisFlyer miles on business trips with Singapore Airlines with the new HighFlyer program.

You can turn your business travel expenses into rewards with the Singapore Airlines’ HighFlyer program. Launched today, the HighFlyer scheme is an extension of the KrisFlyer frequent flyer program designed to suit small to medium-sized organisations with up to 30 travelling employees. If you book a business trip through Singapore Airlines or SilkAir, now both the business and the travelling employee can earn points.

Similar to other business frequent flyer programs, corporates can earn HighFlyer points while employees will collect KrisFlyer miles each time an employee flies with either airline. Employees will earn the standard miles per $1 spent, while corporates will collect five HighFlyer miles for every $1 spent booked through Singapore Airlines’ corporate booking platform.

Once you’ve accumulated a minimum of 3,000 HighFlyer miles, you can use them to redeem flights with Singapore Airlines or Silkair, which could come in handy for future business trips.

The HighFlyer points have a value of SG$0.01 each, giving you a 5% return on airfares considering you earn five points per $1 spent. For example, an Economy flight from Singapore to Bangkok worth SG$425 would set you back 42,500 HighFlyer points.

There is no fee to sign up to the HighFlyer program, but your employees must be registered KrisFlyer members and added as eligible travellers of your company account to earn HighFlyer points.

Singapore Airlines also has a Corporate Travel Programme for large businesses, which HighFlyer members can access once they’ve reached a stipulated annual spend.

The HighFlyer program follows a trend already set by Qantas and Virgin Australia, which have their Business Rewards and Accelerate programs respectively.
