Indian fliers can snag privileges on ground with a new Singapore Airlines app

Members of Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer programme in India can avail of special rewards and discounts at a network of lifestyle brands across the country through the carrier’s newly launched Kris+ app.

While international travel restrictions have left frequent fliers grounded, Singapore Airlines has found a new way to keep its customers in India engaged even when they can’t fly. KrisFlyer members can get the most of their membership locally through the new Kris+ lifestyle app, which offers dining, retail and entertainment discounts from 32 lifestyle brands across 1,500 outlets in India.

Whether you’re a foodie, indulge in retail therapy or want to pamper yourself, you can avail of privileges and earn rewards from partner brands including Nara Thai, Cin Cin, Bayroute Restaurants, Hakkasan, Häagen-Dazs, Anita Dongre, FabIndia, Global Desi, Karma Kettle, Krishna Pearls and Jewellers, Neeru’s, P C Chandra Gems, Sarovar Hotels & Resorts, Toni & Guy, Chakra Urban Spa, MIOT Hospitals and SLAM Lifestyle & Fitness Studio. Guests checking into properties by The Fern Hotel & Resorts are eligible for a 15 per cent discount on room rates when booking from the company’s websites, and a 15 per cent discount on Fern Leisure staycation and holiday packages. 

How it works

All a KrisFlyer member needs to do is download the Kris+ app and log in with their membership number to view their privileges. The homepage will be customised according to your preferences. You can use the app to redeem available offers and discounts on your purchases at all Kris+ partner stores. 

In Singapore, the app has more than 150 partners with over 700 outlets that provide customised deals for KrisFlyer members, and we’re hoping they will further expand their network in India soon too.
