Bahrain national carrier Gulf Air has brought back the popular ‘Half Miles’ redemption promotion for its Falconflyer members.
Gulf Air Falconflyer members can travel anywhere on the airline’s network by redeeming just 50 per cent of the required miles from their accumulated miles.
For instance, a Falconflyer member travelling economy class from Bahrain to any Gulf Air destination in Europe or Far East, need to redeem only 24,000 miles as against the normal requirement of 48,000. If a customer chooses to travel on Falcon Gold premium class, he needs to redeem only 48,000 miles instead of the usual 96,000 miles. By redeeming just 3,000 miles as against 6,000 a member can travel from Bahrain to any destination in GCC or Middle East on economy. To travel on Falcon Gold class, a member needs only 6,000 miles to redeem instead of 12,000.
“Our Falconflyer programme, re-launched last year with a whole new package of benefits, has witnessed tremendous response from our loyal members,” says Gulf Air chief commercial officer Karim Makhlouf. “The programme has been designed to offer unique incentives which are spread through the year so that our loyal members have flexible options to enjoy its benefits.”
He added, “The ‘half miles’ redemption offer is one such incentive that became an instant hit when it was introduced. We have brought it back now to say a big ‘thank you’ to our valued customers for choosing to fly with Gulf Air.”
The ‘half miles’ promotion is open now for redeeming and Falcon Flyer members can travel anytime until 20 August.
Other advantages of the programme include the best redemption rates and the best miles earning system for a premium class in the GCC and Middle East region, special online booking bonuses, a generous baggage allowance, three years miles validity, unlimited lounge access, priority baggage handling, and guaranteed seats among many other benefits that will make the traveling experience more enjoyable and rewarding.
