Marriott Bonvoy® Gold Elite members are eligible to upgrade to KrisFlyer Elite Silver for 12 months with just two flights on Singapore Airlines within six months of linking accounts.
Marriott Bonvoy® Platinum, Titanium, and Ambassador Elite members receive complimentary KrisFlyer Elite Silver status for 12 months. If they also hold KrisFlyer Elite Silver status, they can upgrade to KrisFlyer Elite Gold for 12 months with just four flights on Singapore Airlines within six months of linking accounts. Marriott Bonvoy members can register here.
Singapore Airlines flyers will also see benefits when staying at Marriott hotels.
KrisFlyer Silver Elite members need to stay three qualifying nights at participating properties in Marriott Bonvoy® within six months from the date of registration to accelerate to Marriott Bonvoy® Silver Elite.
PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite Gold PPS Club and KrisFlyer Elite Gold members are invited to enjoy a complimentary membership tier match to Marriott Bonvoy® Gold Elite status (valid for 12 months from the date of registration). Members need to stay 10 qualifying nights at participating properties in Marriott Bonvoy® within six months from the date of registration to accelerate to Marriott Bonvoy® Platinum Elite.

This is not the first airline that Marriott has partnered with to offer additional benefits to its members. It currently has a partnership with Emirates Skywards that offers some benefits and earning opportunities. Marriott Bonvoy® Gold Elite, Platinum, Titanium, and Ambassador Elite members earn three points per $1 spent on all eligible Emirates flights (on top of Skywards Miles). Marriott Bonvoy® Platinum, Titanium, and Ambassador Elite members also enjoy in-airport benefits like priority check-in and priority boarding.
Emirates Skywards Silver, Gold, and Platinum members earn one Skywards Mile per $1 spent on all eligible stays at Marriott Bonvoy® hotels and resorts worldwide. Emirates Skywards Gold and Platinum members also enjoy additional benefits at Marriott Bonvoy® hotels and resorts, including 4:00 PM Late Checkout, access to Elite check-in, and complimentary in-room Wi-Fi.
Marriott and United Airlines are also partners.
Marriott Bonvoy® Titanium and Ambassador Elite members receive complimentary United MileagePlus® Premier® Silver status. United MileagePlus® Premier® Gold, Platinum, 1K®, and Global Services members can enjoy complimentary Marriott Bonvoy® Gold Elite status. Link your accounts here.
Anthony’s Take: There is no harm in linking your accounts and enjoying additional benefits across all three airlines. Emirates and United have been partners with Marriott for some time and Singapore is a nice addition to Marriott’s partners with great benefits for its flyers and vice versa.
