FlySmiLes, the new frequent flyer rewards programme of SriLankan Airlines, has extended the time period for members of Skywards, the airline’s previous frequent flyer programme to transfer their points, up to 15th August 2008.

SriLankan Airlines launched FlySmiLes in March as its partnership with Emirates’ Skywards ended. Existing Skywards Members were given a choice of transferring their points (known as Miles) in full or part to FlySmiLes.

Skywards and Sky Surfers members who wish to transfer points can forward a request to Skywards or the nearest Emirates office on or before 15th August. Or they could forward the message using the feedback form on their respective Skywards accounts. When forwarding the request they need to indicate their FlySmiLes number. Miles transferred could be redeemed after 1st November 2008.

Members of Skywards who join FlySmiLes will be immediately placed in the same tier.e.g. Gold members will be placed as Gold members.

FlySmiLes provides a wide range of rewards to active members. These include free air tickets to any of SriLankan’s 41 destinations in 22 countries across Europe, the Middle East, South Asia and the Far East, and upgrades to Business Class.

Travellers who enrol and fly within six months of enrolment will earn 3000 bonus miles if travelling on economy or 5000 bonus miles if travelling on Business.

FlySmiLes has three tiers of membership – Gold, Silver, and Blue – according to the number of miles flown by each member. Every mile flown is credited as one FlySmiLes Mile. Silver membership is for those who earn over 25,000 tier miles or fly a minimum of 20 sectors within a calendar year. Gold membership is for those with more than 50,000 tier miles or 40 sectors.

Silver members receive a 25% bonus for every mile flown, and Gold members 50% for every mile flown.
