Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme of Etihad Airways, is offering a complimentary Etihad Guest Gold upgrade to holders of gold (or higher-tiered) status with almost any other* airline loyalty programme
You need to apply by 15 March 2015, and full details of the Etihad Gold status match can be found here. We love flying with Etihad, and the benefits of Etihad Guest Gold status include:
- 50% bonus Etihad Guest miles in every flight you take on Etihad Airways
- 15 kilos additional baggage allowance on all applicable flights
- Enhanced Lounge Access – You and a guest are invited to enjoy our luxurious Business Class Lounges before you fly across our network
- Guaranteed seats – If you make a booking at least 24 hours in advance, we will guarantee you an Economy Class seat on an Etihad Airways flight of your choice – even if the flight is fully booked.
- Fast-Track Access – Upon arrival at your destination, skip the queue at border control to enjoy a speedy exit
To receive your Etihad Guest Gold card, follow these simple steps:
- Existing Etihad Guest members: Send a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, plus a copy of your latest miles statement along with your Etihad Guest membership number to EYGCorporate@etihad.ae
- Non-Etihad Guest members: Send a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, plus a copy of your latest miles statement along with your full name, email ID, date of birth, physical address and telephone number to EYGCorporate@etihad.ae
A confirmation email will be sent to you within 2 working weeks, and your Etihad Guest Gold card will be sent to you within a month of receiving the email confirmation.
In Etihad’s own words, this “sudden generosity” is because they are “confident that once you upgrade to Etihad Guest Gold, no other loyalty programme will do”.
