Marriott Int’l, Singapore Airlines deepen strategic partnership

Enhanced benefits for members of Bonvoy and KrisFlyer

Marriott International and Singapore Airlines are strengthening their strategic partnership, which provides members of Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s award-winning travel program, and KrisFlyer, the SIA Group’s lifestyle rewards programme, with more ways to maximise their benefits.

Effective immediately, eligible members of the two programs may receive a status match and take advantage of an accelerated pathway to obtain a higher elite status. The expansion of this collaboration is in addition to the two-way points and miles transfer benefits for members of both programs that was announced in January 2023, and allows them to convert their Marriott Bonvoy points into KrisFlyer miles and vice versa.
