Singapore Airlines (SIA) is turning customers’ miles into currency through its new digital wallet KrisPay. Members can user their accumulated miles at any of the 18 participating retailers and outlets, including gas and food providers, through the mobile app.

Non-traditional payment methods like KrisPay have seen an increase of popularity with the rise of digital currencies and wider access to easy exchange. “By creating a miles-based digital wallet which integrates the use of miles into their daily lives, KrisFlyer members have yet another way to use miles instantly on everyday transactions,” said SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong. The airline plans on expanding the selection in the near future.
