Etihad Airways and Emirates Islamic expand partnership

Posted 4 November 2019 · Add Comment

Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme of Etihad Airways, and Emirates Islamic, one of the leading Islamic financial institutions in the country, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to partner in launching a new jointly branded credit card.

 

Yasser Al Yousuf, vice president commercial partnerships, Etihad Airways said: “We are proud to expand our partnership with Emirates Islamic to bring a new card to the UAE market. Our partnership will further extend the reach of the Etihad Guest membership programme through the bank’s nationwide customer base and offer opportunities for its customers to enjoy the luxury travel, benefits and privileges Etihad Airways and Etihad Guest have to offer.

Etihad Guest and Emirates Islamic have been in partnership since 2014, allowing the bank’s customers to convert their EI Smart Miles into Etihad Guest Miles, which can then be used to book flights or be redeemed on the airline’s Reward Shop. The new card will complement the existing programme, giving customers more opportunity to earn miles and redeem for rewards.

Wasim Saifi, deputy chief executive officer - Consumer Banking and Wealth Management at Emirates Islamic, said: “At Emirates Islamic, we always strive to provide our customers with the most innovative banking solutions to fulfil their lifestyle needs. We are pleased to partner with Etihad Guest to offer our customers the benefits of a versatile and dynamic loyalty programme.  As we continue to expand our offerings, especially for our Emirati customer base, I am confident that the new card, with its travel benefits and privileges, will be extremely well-received in the UAE market.”
