Etihad Airways announce all-new loyalty programme and rewards

If you’re an expat here in the UAE, then the chances are you fly home or off on holidays regularly throughout the year.

Once you start travelling more, and making trips regularly, making the most of your money and seeking rewards for tour travel fare quickly moves up the priority list.

Luckily, there’s good news on the horizon if you’re a frequent flyer.

Etihad Airways has relaunched its loyalty programme and there loads of new benefits for members.

Members will now be able to use their air miles, or a combination of miles and cash, to buy a number of extras including economy space, extra baggage allowance and insurance.

Discounts for purchasing in-flight wi-fi and seat selection on flights will also be available.

In addition, guest miles earned will also no longer expire as long as guests make one eligible transaction every 18 months so you’ll no longer lose any air miles you earn.

Those with Gold Membership and above will also been able to take advantage of a complimentary chauffeur service to or from Abu Dhabi Airport, when travelling on business class and in first class when redeeming miles.

“We are very proud of the Etihad Guest programme and through its well-timed relaunch are striving to deliver new and more innovative ways of rewarding the loyalty of our millions of guests worldwide, by removing restrictions wherever possible, and by providing a wider range of superior benefits and products, delivered to them with the style and professionalism they have come to expect from Etihad Guest,” said Robin Kamark, CCO of Etihad Aviation Group.

“We will continue to engage with our members, whether existing or new, on an even greater personal level moving forward, so Etihad Guest can evolve based on the needs of our customers, and also to cater to developing global travel trends.”
