Etihad Cargo has unveiled its new loyalty program for freight forwarders called CargoConnect, a free mileage earning program that rewards companies for every booking made with the UAE cargo operator.
Built on a similar
platform to the award-winning Etihad Guest frequent flyer program, CargoConnect
is targeted at the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) segment of the
global cargo business.
The program allows CargoConnect
members to earn Etihad Guest Miles for net revenue paid on Etihad Cargo,
and some of the benefits include being able to redeem miles for flights,
upgrades, or chose from more than 6,000 items in the Etihad Guest Rewards Shop.
today, registered CargoConnect members will earn 1 Etihad Guest Mile for
every US$2 net revenue paid as general cargo, and 4 Etihad Guest Miles for
every US$2 net revenue paid as premium cargo.
can register online at www.etihadcargo.com, and for those doing so
before June 30, 2013, a bonus gift of 5,000 Etihad Guest Miles will be credited
to their new CargoConnect account.
Knight, Etihad Airways Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said:
“Introducing a smart and rewarding loyalty scheme for SME cargo customers is
another excellent example of how Etihad Cargo continues to reward its customers
and drive added value.”
CargoConnect is open to
freight forwarders without agreements already in place with Etihad Cargo.
