Etihad Airways has been promoting heavily its BusinessConnect program for SME’s that are not eligible for corporate contract.
In essence, the flier earns all the usual miles for Etihad and airberlin flights to his/her Etihad Guest account and the business will also earn bonus miles for its BusinessConnect account for the same flights. Virgin Australia flights that are Etihad coded are eligible for BusinessConnect miles as well.
During this promotion you will earn 10,000 bonus miles for signing up for a BusinessConnect, linking your Etihad Guest account to it and taking a flight within 3 months of BusinessConnect account opening date. The BusinessConnect account will also receive 10,000 bonus miles.
Your company’s BusinessConnect account must have at least two accounts linked to it. Only one must take the flight within 30 days to be eligible for the bonus mikes.
There are occasional mileage promotions for Etihad Guest accounts that are connected to BusinessConnect account.
The previous offer for BusinessConnect sign up didn’t require any flight activity. Merely signing up for the account and linking your Etihad Guest account was enough. I think that Etihad learned a lesson….
This is a good offer if you have a company and you have an Etihad or airberlin flight coming up within 3 months. You and your company’s BusinessesConnect accounts will both receive 10,000 bonus miles.
Thanks for LoyaltyLobby reader for forwarding me the email that he had received from Etihad regarding this offer.
