Singapore Airlines to Resume Newark Flights, Extend Reward Status

Singapore Airlines will restore daily flights from Newark Liberty Airport with nonstop service beginning March 28, 2022, the company announced Thursday. 

With this resumption, the carrier’s service to the New York City metro area will include three daily flights, including two from John F. Kennedy International Airport. 

“Expanding for the first time to triple-daily service from the New York area is a key example of our commitment to both rebuild and grow our U.S. route network,” said Singapore regional VP for the Americas Joey Seow in a statement. 

The flight will operate on an Airbus A350-900 ultra-long-range plane, configured with 67 Business Class seats and 94 in Premium Economy Class. 

Singapore Airlines also is extending its loyalty program’s elite status and miles for a third year, the company announced. 

All PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite statuses due to expire between March 2022 and February 2023 will be extended for another year. Elite miles earned by KrisFlyer Elite members in the 12 months prior to the latest extension will be credited back into their accounts after the extension. Elite miles earned during the previous membership qualification cycle will count toward requalification in the March 2023 to February 2024 cycle.

KrisFlyer miles that expire in 2022 will be extended six months at a time, at the end of each month. For example, if miles expire in January 2022, they will be extended to July 2022. If the miles still are unused by the end of July, they will be extended to January 2023. 

Rewards earned from PPS Rewards and KrisFlyer Milestone Rewards that are due to expire in 2022 will be extended to Dec. 31, 2022.
