What airlines can I go for?

If I'm looking to transfer miles from my citibank and UOB cards, which airlines can I look at?

And if I want to transfer my miles to airlines like Emirates, is it impossible?

Thank you.

Hi anon,

Unfortunately Citibank and UOB cards cannot transfer their miles/points to Emirates. You'll need a SCB card or Amex card for that.

Citibank does have a wide range of transfer partners so you can consider utilizing your UNI$ first since they have an expiry and citimiles don't. Now, I won't go as far as to say that one airline is definitely better than the other, but Cathay Pacific (Asiamiles) is still quite good, if you have already tried SQ and wanted to look at other airlines for redemption.

The good thing about having KF miles is that you can take advantage of spontaneous escapes (every month) to further reduce the cost of your redemptions on SQ.

Krisflyer is the one to go. I feel SQ is better off than Emirates.

SIA with Krisflyer.

It helps that Singapore is an airhub, so SIA can offer great promotion deals for miles redemption at periodic promotions to maximize their off-peak period.

If you prefer other airlines, Citibank has 12 partners, you can choose easily.

SIA krisflyer can be deemed both from UOB and Citibank- go for this!

PS: It helps that we are singaporeans and yes, Singapore pride in flying our own national airline.

Singapore airline is still the number one choice.

Not only is it national pride, the service is always good.

Most importantly. the safety of the plane is utmost, all the planes are relatively newer and you don't have to worry that they cut short the maintenance work to save a few bucks here and that.

KRisflyer is linked with so many credit card, citibank and uob both have krisflyer in it =)

Singapore Airlines (Krisflyer program) is probably the one to go to because it has one of the most worth mile value for those of us living here. One of the reason is because SIngapore airlines transport hub is here; other airline miles you need to fly to their home country hub before going to your destination and this tend to be longer routes and in turn miles

Not able to transfer mile to airline like Emirates​​​

Consider KrisFlyer with Singapore Airlines, which is part of Star Alliance network. They cover an impressive 1,250 destinations and 195 countries.

Unfortunately you cannot exchange your points from Citibank and UOB card to Emirates Skyward.

Here is everything about me and what I do best.​​​
