Etihad Airways considered the World’s Leading Airline by the prestigious World Travel Awards, has announced a reciprocal Frequent Flyer agreement with codeshare partner Malaysia Airlines. Etihad Guest programme members can now earn Etihad Guest Miles when flying on Malaysia Airlines.
Members of Enrich, Malaysia Airlines’ loyalty and frequent flyer programme, can also earn Enrich Miles on Etihad Airways flights.
In both cases, the number of miles earned will depend upon the class of travel.
Moreover, Etihad Guest Miles can be redeemed for Malaysia Airlines flights, and vice-versa.
Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are delighted to take our successful partnership with Malaysia Airlines to the next level by extending it with a close frequent flyer cooperation. This offers both airlines’ loyal customers the opportunity to earn and burn miles on each other’s network.”
Malaysia Airlines, the premium flag carrier of Malaysia, flies to more than a hundred destinations on six continents.
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, began operations in 2003, and in 2010 carried more than seven million passengers. From its hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Etihad serves 86 cargo and passenger destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.
