Etihad made an announcement today that you can earn Guest award and tier miles for cargo shipments with the airline.
Etihad Guest Silver, Gold and Gold elite members will also receive bonus miles based on their tier.
You can access more info about this on Etihad’s website here.
The number of award and tier miles you earn is dependent of the type of cargo that you transport.
If you are going to transport your pet or some personal cargo on the airline, why wouldn’t you collect the miles offered in the process as well?
Here are the terms and conditions associated with this offer:
Terms and Conditions apply. Etihad Guest Miles can be offered to customers sending pets from Chicago or John F. Kennedy-New York only, to be tendered for carriage at our Ground Handler’s warehouse after completion of all formalities. Etihad Guest Miles for personal cargo can only be offered on freighter routes through Washington. For Canada and Brazil there are no such restrictions. Miles are credited up to 45 days after the cargo has been transported. Cargo for commercial purposes will not accrue miles. Miles will not be credited without the Etihad Guest membership number and Air Waybill number.
