When an airline makes award search engine better for us points flyers, that airline deserves to be applauded. Singapore Airlines recently made a great improvement to its award search functionality. It now allows you to search for award availability using KrisFlyer miles with a flexible dates search calendar showing the cheapest miles available on each day for booking. The new search functionality works on Singapore Airlines, Silk Air, Star Alliance and other partner airlines.

    Singapore Airlines Improved Flexible Award Dates Search Feature

    Up to this point, Singapore Airlines award search functionality was not fast and while it also provided flexible dates search calendar to KrisFlyer members, the calendar was not that useful at all because you had to click on each day to find out if it had the lowest (Saver) award seat available. 

    However, with the new improved search interface, you can now view award availability across several weeks without having to click on each day. The new improved award search features are:
    • Ability to view award seats availability across several weeks.
    • Arrows to go back and forth between dates with fast loading speed. 
    • Ability to see which date has the lowest (Saver) award seat (not waitlist) available right away. If the date has "waitlist" Saver award, Singapore Airlines calendar shows the non-saver (Advantage) award miles instead. (See screenshot below).
    • New improved search feature also works with Star Alliance and other partner airlines.

    How To Search Singapore Airlines Award Tickets Using New Award Search Functionality

    You don't have to do anything different. 
    • Sign into your Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer's account. 
    • Click on Redeem flights.
    • Input your itinerary and click Search.
    • The new award search calendar interface should be loaded up and you simply use the back and forth arrows to search for award availability of each day. Keep in mind that the calendar only displays available lowest non-waitlist award seats unless Saver and Advantage awards are both waitlist awards. 


    It is always great to see that an airline improves award search engine to make life easier for all of us that enjoy using miles to redeem for flights. Singapore Airlines' new redesign of award search functionality with flexible dates search calendar that displays the lowest (Saver) award availability on each day is a great improvement from its previous award search functionality. So kudos to Singapore Airlines for rolling out a more improved and useful award search interface.
