Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme for Etihad Airways, has signed a deal with the Porsche Centre of Abu Dhabi and Ali & Sons Co LLC, to offer new benefits to its UAE-based members.
The deal will see Etihad Guest members
earn miles with the purchase of a Porsche, enabling them to add a dream holiday
to their purchase of a luxury sports car. As an example, a member who buys a
new 2016 Porsche Cayenne will earn enough miles to fly one way from Abu Dhabi to London or New York*.
The partnership with the Porsche Centre
Abu Dhabi is the latest to be announced by the national carrier of the United
Arab Emirates, as the scheme looks to grow its membership base and provide its
millions of members with access to unique offers and opportunities. Etihad
Guest is committed to providing value to its members and as such is expanding
the ways in which they can earn and redeem miles.
Yasser Al Yousuf, Managing Director of
Etihad Guest, said: “As a premium loyalty programme, we want to align ourselves
with products and brands that will benefit our growing member base. The Porsche
brand is a great fit for Etihad Guest, as it matches our values and together we
believe we can offer real benefits to each other’s customers. Etihad Guest is
increasingly looking to become a lifestyle programme that matches the needs of our
growing number of customers.”
Wissam Khalil, General Manager of Porsche
Centre Abu Dhabi, said: “As always, we are committed to bringing more value to
our customers and enthusiasts. This partnership with Etihad Guest will also result
in members being able to redeem miles for vehicle servicing, Porsche driving
experiences, Tequipment purchases and Exclusive vehicle options.”
