Czech offers FFP platinum card

Czech Airlines is offering the members of its OK Plus Frequent Flyer Programme a Platinum Card.At the beginning of the year, the Airline expanded its system of rewards for passengers who fly with it regularly.  Up to now, loyal passengers could make use of the advantages offered by the OK Plus Silver and Gold Cards.  The Platinum Card can be newly obtained by those members of the OK Plus Frequent Flyer Programme who collect 100,000 miles in one calendar year, flying in the networks of Czech Airlines and the SkyTeam Alliance.

“By introducing the Platinum Card, we are striving to fulfil the wishes of our business passengers, and primarily those who have repeatedly earned an OK Plus Gold Card.  This prestigious card will help us assure an individualised approach in the provision of above-standard services for our most loyal and valued passengers, who will thus have another reason to collect miles and travel comfortably on board of Czech Airlines,” said the Director of Frequent Flyer Programmes at Czech Airlines, Tomá? Hrdlička.

Advantages for Platinum Card Holders
Platinum Card holders will be able to take advantage of a number of above-standard services.  For example, should they purchase an electronic ticket for a flight operated by Czech Airlines, they can request an upgrade to Business Class, 24 hours before the flight, for themselves and one accompanying passenger.  Naturally, they will receive priority check-in and access to business lounges on their flights with the SkyTeam Alliance, anywhere in the world, and priority handling during passport and security checks when departing from Prague.  Another advantage for the holders of Platinum Cards is a 100% Elite bonus.  That means that each passenger will get twice the number of miles for each flight.  Passengers holding OK Plus Platinum Cards can carry an extra 30 kg of excess baggage at no charge, and another 10 kg for the accompanying passenger.  The card will be of use primarily to business travellers, who will enjoy a broader range of benefits than they have been able to use in the programme to date.

Another important bonus is the Partner Gold Card, for a person chosen by the Platinum Card holder.  Furthermore, should the OK Plus member not meet the limit for earning the Platinum Card the following year, Czech Airlines will give him an OK Plus Gold Card, regardless of the number of miles earned or flights flown.  There will also be a special telephone line for Platinum Card holders, for the OK Plus 24/7 Service Centre, where they will be able to easily arrange the drawing of all of the benefits to which they are entitled.  The holders of the highest level of OK Plus Programme membership will also get six, one-time invitations for free access to Crystal Lounges at Prague Airport, which they can give to anyone of their choice.
