Etihad expands 'BusinessConnect' including Cyprus

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has extended BusinessConnect, its loyalty program for businesses, to 12 new markets including Cyprus.

The mileage-earning program is targeted at the Small to Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) sector, offering huge opportunities and benefits for companies who fly with Etihad Airways. 

As part of the award-winning Etihad Guest loyalty program, registered BusinessConnect customers are able to earn Etihad Guest Miles every time one of their employees takes a flight.

Etihad Guest Miles can be earned on all Etihad Airways tickets booked on etihad.com, through Etihad Contact Centres, or by appointed travel agents. 

There are also no blackout periods when redeeming miles against upgrades, free flights, or the thousands of products from the Etihad Guest Reward Shop.

The points can even be converted to cash via PointsPay to spend at thirty million outlets worldwide. 

Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, Peter Baumgartner, said: “BusinessConnect, now available in 40 countries, is the smartest and most rewarding loyalty scheme for SMEs. It’s a fantastic way for companies to optimise their travel spend, for staff and companies to each earn Etihad Guest Miles, whilst adding convenience and value to the business and corporate travel experience. In short, it makes business sense all round.”

Setting up a BusinessConnect account is free of charge and new members receive 5,000 bonus miles.

To be eligible for the 5,000 welcome bonus miles, the BusinessConnect account must have a minimum of two Etihad Guest members connected to itand at least one member must fly on an Etihad Airways operated flight within three months of the BusinessConnect account registration date.

The 5,000 welcome bonus miles will be credited to the relevant account within 10 working days once the first qualifying flight has been taken, as long as this flight has been taken within three months of the BusinessConnect account registration date.
