Designed for travelers, the EastWest Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Mastercard miles-to-spend conversion allows members to earn more miles so they can fly to their milestone destinations sooner and travel more often.
Manila, Philippines — EastWest Banking Corp. in partnership with KrisFlyer, the frequent flyer program of Singapore Airlines, formally introduced the EastWest Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Mastercard designed for travelers during a recent launch event in Shangri-La Fort, Taguig City.
The co-branded card, available in Platinum and World variants, allows frequent fliers to earn up to three times more KrisFlyer miles when they purchase tickets from the Singapore Airlines Group or use the card for international and online purchases.
“This is a first of its kind partnership in the Philippines for us, and it’s something that we’re really proud of,” Singapore Airlines Vice-President for Loyalty Marketing Ryan Pua said.
Platinum cardholders will receive 3,000 KrisFlyer welcome bonus miles upon completion of Php100,000 retail spends within three (3) months from card activation. World cardholders will receive 6,000 KrisFlyer welcome bonus miles, upon completion of Php200,000 retail spends within three (3) months from card activation.
Apart from miles, the program also enables cardholders to experience Singapore Airlines’ service and cabin products that span over 130 destinations around the world.
Platinum cardholders get to enjoy other benefits, such as twice-a-year free access to over 1,200 Priority Pass VIP Airport Lounges around the world, free travel inconvenience benefits, and a low foreign currency exchange rate of 1.70%.
Other premium privileges include curated domestic and cross-border getaways, culinary adventures, shopping opportunities, and family entertainment pursuits.
“We recognize the importance and resurgence of travel among Filipinos, which is why we have taken our service to the next level by partnering with one of the world’s top airlines to bring jetsetters a premier travel credit card,” EastWest Vice President and Head of Consumer Lending Jacqueline Fernandez said in a statement.
