Dubai’s fast growing carrier, flydubai, has announced the launch of its rewards programme OPEN, reports Phil Blizzard in Dubai.
Commenting on the launch of the online rewards programme, Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive, flydubai told Breaking Travel News: “We are committed to introducing product innovations that enhance the overall customer experience with flydubai.
“We’ve designed this rewards programme to be less restrictive and instantly rewarding. It is transparent and straight-to-the-point.
“That’s why we call it OPEN.”
“We are grateful for the more than 38 million passengers who have chosen to flydubai since our launch and this rewards programme is a great opportunity to give back to our customers and make their experience a more enjoyable one.”
OPEN is a straightforward rewards programme where members can earn reward points with every flydubai flight.
Members can use their reward points to pay for flydubai flights, upgrades and optional extras for any trip, on any day, to any destination.
For every US$1 members spend on their entire booking (excluding taxes and admin fee), members receive one OPEN reward point.
Reward points can easily be redeemed for flydubai flights any day of the year with no minimum balances or blackout dates.
Members earn reward points on pre-purchased checked baggage, food or even an extra legroom seat.
Frequent flyers over the course of a year could earn gold membership status by earning the required number of tier points.
As an OPEN Gold member, fliers can earn up to ten times the number of reward points as earned by an OPEN member, enjoy a range of extra benefits including priority check-in at business class counters, access to the business lounge in Dubai International Terminal 2 and priority baggage handling.
flydubai, which was launched in 2009, stated that OPEN is another milestone in the carrier’s development as its network matures.
