It seems Korean Air Skypass is to return as a Chase Ultimate Rewards Transfer Partner, much to the relief of many, after it appeared that there would be No More Korean Air Skypass Transfers from Chase Ultimate Rewards.
Previously, not only had Korean Air Skypass disappeared as a transfer option on the Chase Ultimate Rewards site; Chase Ultimate Rewards had disappeared from the Korean Air Skypass site as a Partner Credit Card.
Now, Chase Ultimate Rewards has returned on the Korean Air Skypass site:
And this Flyertalker reports receiving the following note from Korean Airlines, asking about the return of Korean Air Skypass as a transfer option from Chase Ultimate Rewards, bolding mine:
“Please be advised that this is a temporary suspension due to Chase’s SKYPASS mileage conversion page requiring additional modification to certain functions.
Although the renewal date has not been set, we are continuously working with Chase to find the possible resolution to the current issue…”
Obviously this is still a major problem for those who have Korean Skypass awards on hold and were counting on being able to transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points before the holds expire, since there is no ETA on when transfers will again be possible. But at least this is better news than a permanent (and unannounced) discontinuation of transfers to Korean Air Skypass and devaluation of Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
