Solution
Million dollar question asked several milllion times on here… while many are waiting for this to occur to move their points out, it is not confirmed that it is happening yet.

A couple of press releases have hinted it is coming back but no timelines, conversion rates or dates have been committed.

Some members think the transfer, if it returns will be ‘enhanced’ to a poorer conversion rate but this is just a guess.

I thought there was some economy?

The Velocity website still says:

We are working closely with Singapore Airlines to plan for the reintroduction of Reward Seats and the ability for members to transfer Points between the Velocity and KrisFlyer programs. Please review this page for the latest updates. Available travel dates will vary for each route.

Do you have a source for this? Last time I checked, it's not yet possible to redeem Velocity points for Singapore Airlines flights.
no i dont, but I recall Virgin announcing international redemptions are back. (sorry if i am wrong I get a million emails a day, and then I delete them)

Not even that. As we do recall SQ was always going to be separate from most of VA's other partners as they had redemptions to their Star partners blocked until recently (going by reports of seats appearing on AC and NH).

I would think SQ restoring redemptions to the Star partners take priority first.

For #22, get a tea spoon, which I did, and use KrisflyerVrooms, which I did too, my haul has gone from 10,xx_ to 3,111 KF miles.
Better than letteting those KF miles expire, which will surely start to happen again, later on, (after their good heartedness has gone, after their many extensions due to covid, but for how long more will KF keep giving us these extensions).
