Etihad Guest, Etihad Airways’ loyalty program, has unveiled a range of new benefits for holders of its Gold Elite membership status.

The new benefits include an increase in tier bonus miles from 50% to 75% as well as a complimentary nomination to Etihad Guest Gold for any other member of their choosing.

In addition, regardless of the cabin they are flying in, Etihad Guest Gold Elite members now have access to Etihad Airways’ Diamond First Class Lounges for them and a companion as well as access to Diamond First Class check-in.

Gold Elite members are also guaranteed to be able to purchase a Pearl Business Class seat, when booking at least 48 hours prior to departure, on an Etihad Airways operated flight for their chosen date and destination.

 “Etihad Guest is renowned as the world’s leading loyalty program and so we are always looking at new and exciting enhancements for our members,” said Barry Green, Etihad Airways’ Vice President Customer Relationship Management and Loyalty. “The new Etihad Guest Gold Elite member benefits, with 75% tier bonus miles and Guaranteed Pearl Business Class seat, ensure that our elite offering continues to set the highest benchmark across the industry.”

The Etihad Guest program was launched in 2006 and in the next few months is expected to reach two million members.

The benefits of the Etihad Guest program include:

• No blackout periods – GuestSeats are available on all flights, and if a seat is available, it can be booked

• Anytime availability – all seats, including the very last seat, are available at any time

• Redeem OpenSeats at a mileage cost equivalent to the commercial price of the seat

• Miles plus cash – decide how many miles to use and contribute the rest in cash using our Miles+Cash feature

• PointsPay – a new redemption feature which liberates Etihad Guest Miles by converting them instantly to cash to spend at thirty million outlets worldwide.

 The Etihad Guest Gold Elite tier level is the top frequent flyer recognition of the Etihad Guest program and can only be attained by earning the required status miles.
