KrisFlyer debuted on 1 February 1999 as an airline loyalty programme that enabled customers to earn miles for travel with SIA and KrisFlyer partner airlines. It has since evolved into an industry-leading lifestyle-centric rewards programme with a wide range of opportunities to earn and burn miles. Its key milestones include the integration of mile redemptions with KrisShop in May 2016, the launch of KrisFlyer Experiences in January 2020 to offer members curated experiences for redemption, the unveiling of payment and rewards app Kris+ in October 2020, and the conception of travel experiences platform, Pelago, in June 2021. In 2023, KrisFlyer was voted Best Frequent Flier Program by DestinAsian (Asia) readers, the second year in a row it has received the accolade.
