Gulf Air’s Falconflyer programme welcomes Etihad Airways as new airline partner

Posted 13 January 2020 · Add Comment

Gulf Air’s Falconflyer loyalty programme has inked a new partnership with Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme for Etihad Airways, further enhancing benefits for its members.

 

The partnership expands on the codeshare agreement between the two airlines and provides further cooperation between the frequent flyer programmes, Falconflyer and Etihad Guest. This allows members to earn and redeem miles reciprocally on all flights across both networks. In both cases, the number of miles earned will depend upon the class of travel flown.

Vincent Coste, chief commercial officer for Gulf Air said: “Gulf Air entered into a strategic codeshare partnership with Etihad Airways in March 2019. As an additional value proposition, we are delighted to build upon our successful partnership by further providing our Falconflyer members with the opportunity to earn and spend their Gulf Air miles on the Etihad Airways’ network.” 

Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer for Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Our recently redesigned, upgraded, and relaunched loyalty programme, Etihad Guest, welcomes another valued partner that offers our members even more opportunities to earn and redeem their miles. This new and exciting partnership helps us continuously evolve and improve our loyalty programme based on the needs of our guests and in line with our ever-changing industry.”
