Alaska partnered with Singapore Airlines in 2017. This was great news for award points aficianados, but unfortunately, implementation has taken significantly longer than we would have liked.
Now, you can use Alaska MileagePlan miles on Singapore Airlines flights! Singapore first class flights are some of the most sought after awards in this hobby, and you might have just gotten closer to your next Singapore redemption.

How Many Alaska Miles Do I Need for Singapore Airlines?
You can check out all of the award charts for Alaska’s partners here. I’ve included the Singapore chart below, these are one-way prices for flights between the US and Asia.
These rates are fairly standard for flights with Alaska’s partners. Take a 40,000 one-way economy ticket, for example. You’ll be charged 32,500 Alaska miles on American Airlines, 30,000 on Cathay Pacific, 52,500 on Emirates, 50,000 on Finnair, 30,000 on Hainan Airlines, 35,000 on Japan Airlines, and a whopping 70,000 on Korean Air!
Any additional flexibility for your points is good, so keep that in mind! Up until now, it was only possible to earn Alaska miles on Singapore flights (and the opposite), and redeem Singapore miles on Alaska Airlines. Now, the partnership is finally complete, allowing you to book Singapore flights with your Alaska MileagePlan miles.

If you try and book business or first on Alaska it will take you up to the final step and then tell you it is not available. To the best of my knowledge, Singapore Air only releases their premium seats to their elite.
“a whopping 70,000 on Korean Air!”
that’s because they require round trip booking. So it’s technically 35,000 one way just like others.
@Ken for what it is worth, I was able to book premium cabin seats on SQ using AS miles a few days ago, as soon as they launched the partnership.
@Nicholas Thanks. I tried it and found I was able to book two Business tickets.
It took a call and the operator, working with her supervisor, found two tickets. There were probably 5 or 6 SIN flights on that day, but the operator indicated that the two tickets I booked were the only tickets that were available.
I have never found SIN tickets on a partner airline before. Maybe things are changing.
More choices are better, but these are pricey.
