Caribbean Star Airlines recently announced that an agreement has been signed which allows Star Miles passengers to earn and burn mileage in conjunction with travel on Virgin Atlantic Airways. A one-way agreement was in existence for some time, whereby Virgin Atlantic’s passengers were able to amass miles for travel on Caribbean Star Airlines. With immediate effect, Star Miles members can also take advantage of a range of exciting initiatives under the joint plan.
Sandra Scotland, Director of Marketing at Caribbean Star Airlines said, “This initiative has been in the pipeline for some time now and we are very pleased that our Star Miles members can now trade miles they have earned on an international carrier.” Scotland added that for as little as US$299.00 and 6000 miles, Frequent Flyers would be able to purchase a return ticket to London, which is an exceptional benefit. “The joint programme can also be effective for hoteliers in the region, since vacations to the Caribbean become that much more affordable through complimentary inter-island frequent flyer travel”.
The Star Miles programme is now fully automated for added convenience. Points are entered on check-in and regular monthly statements are mailed to active members for easy reconciliation of their accounts. There is also an additional incentive of 50 free miles to new members on signing up.
