Earn KrisFlyer points flying Scoot or TigerAir

Scoot and TigerAir (Singapore) have both introduced fare bundles that allow you to earn KrisFlyer points while flying on their services. Note that in the case of TigerAir, this new addition is only valid for their Singapore (TR) operations – it does not apply to TigerAir in Australia.

These changes add on to the already existing ability to redeem points for Scoot and TigerAir (Singapore) flights.

Taking a leaf from the Jetstar playbook, KrisFlyer points are available only if you purchase a bundle. As with Jetstar these bundles include other items in addtion to the points. However, they only provide a points earning capability – you are unable to earn Elite Miles while flying Scoot ot TigerAir.



Scoot has a bundle that goes under the name of PlusPerks. PlusPerks is an addon bundle that is sold at a price of SGD/AUD39 (short-haul flights) or SGD/AUD59 (long-haul flights) per passenger per flight. The bundle includes:

  • Earn KrisFlyer miles – See chart below
  • Preferred seat selection with extra legroom – You are entitled to preferred seat reservation with no additional seat selection fees charged.
  • Booking Flexibility – You are entitled to 1 flight date OR name change per booking up to 24 hours before departure allowed online;
  • First-on-Board – You are entitled to First-on-Board, which gives you priority check-in & boarding privileges at all airports

The KrisFlyer earning rate is as follows:
