We already know about Status match between Vistara and Singapore airlines.There is tie up between Shangri-La and Taj hotels too

Basically you get atleast 5 way status match with this:

  1. Shangri-la
  2. Taj group of hotels
  3. Singapore Airlines
  4. Vistara Airlines 
  5. Star Alliance Membership 

Singapore Airlines is a Star Alliance member and hence if you hold any status with Singapore Airlines – it transfer to the entire network of Star Alliance including Air India. 

The partnership between Singapore Airlines and Shangri-La means that you can match your Golden Circle Jade status to KrisFlyer Silver.

Where the real value lies is in upgrading your status to KrisFlyer Elite Gold by taking three Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flights within four months of your status match. They can be in any booking class except G (group bookings). They must be flights bought with cash, i.e. not award flights.

The status match also works the other way around for those who hold KrisFlyer PPS Club and Elite Gold status—you’ll get an instant match to Golden Circle Gold and be upgraded to Jade after one stay at a Shangri-La property.

Reports are that the Gold/Jade status match in both directions is instant and that it will be valid until the end of the month you have applied (plus one year).

What constitutes the three-flight requirement?

This is the really generous part of the promotion—it just means three different legs or, put another way, three different flight numbers.

So, you could book a return trip on Singapore Airlines your Australian airport to Hong Kong via Singapore in any class and it would qualify!
