Movenpick teams up with Saudi Arabian Air

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts joins Saudi Arabian Airlines’ frequent flyer programme with effect from 1 March 2007. This means that Alfursan members will also be able to collect additional miles at Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

Members of the Alfursan Frequent Flyer Programme will be awarded extra miles whenever they stay at any of the 59 Mövenpick Hotels worldwide at standard rack rates. And, during a special promotional offer throughout June 2007, they will even be able to collect double miles every time they stay at one of the hotels in the Swiss international hotel chain.

Saudi Arabian Airlines is the sixth Frequent Flyer partner. Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts already has successful co-operation ventures with Lufthansa (Miles & More), Air France & KLM (Flying Blue), Czech Airlines (CSA OK Club), Qatar Airways (Privilege Club) and Gulf Air (Frequent Flyer).

“We are delighted about the new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines,” says Steven Nikolov, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. “We are expecting a great deal from it, especially for our hotels in the Middle East in general and in Saudi Arabia in particular, where in the near future we shall have no fewer than nine hotels.”
