Gulf Air brings back popular ‘half miles’ redemption for Falconflyers

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 Gulf Air’s network by redeeming just 50% 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 24000 miles as against the normal requirement of 48000. If a customer chooses to travel on Falcon Gold premium class, he needs to redeem only 48000 miles instead of the usual 96000 miles. By redeeming just 3000 miles as against 6000 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 6000 miles to redeem instead of 12000.

“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, Mr. 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.”

“Our objective is simple; – no matter what your reason for travel is- business, holiday or a family get together- your Gulf Air Falconflyer membership earns you more miles as you fly and takes less miles to enjoy its benefits” Mr. Makhlouf concluded.

The ‘half miles’ promotion is open now for redeeming and Falcon Flyer members can travel anytime between 20 July and 20 August 2012.

Gulf Air’s new loyalty program ‘Falconflyer’ is packed with privileges in all its three categories – Gold, Silver and Blue. From additional baggage allowances to enjoying the facilities at Falcon Gold lounges to earning double miles, the programme offers more advantages and benefits comparable to other loyalty programmes in the world.

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.
