GRAB and Singapore Airlines (SIA), in a joint announcement said members of Grab's GrabRewards programme will be able to convert their GrabRewards points into SIA Krisflyer miles in the near future (see amendment note).

The announcement was coupled with the launch of a joint booking scheme between the companies.

Starting Oct 3, passengers can now book rides to airports in six countries on Grab through SIA's mobile app.

The service allows passengers to book their Grab trips to airports in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, up to seven days before their flight.

Passengers who open the SingaporeAir mobile app will be directed to the Grab app, with the airport filled in automatically as the destination.

"We are thrilled to bring more convenience to our customers on the ground and in the air through our new partnership with Grab, while also offering KrisFlyer and GrabRewards members the opportunity to convert points to miles and redeem them for award flights or flight upgrades," said Campbell Wilson, SIA senior vice-president of sales and marketing.

Amendment note: A previous version of this story said customers could convert their GrabRewards points into SIA Krisflyer miles starting Oct 3. Grab has since clarified the points conversion will instead be made available in the near future.
