RIYADH: The leading low-cost carrier in Saudi Arabia, flynas, has extended its partnership agreement with Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, which now allows its loyalty program “nasmiles” members to earn SMILE Points when booking accommodation via a co-branded website.
A common challenge when booking accommodation through third-party online marketplaces is the inability to earn airline loyalty reward points. Members of “nasmiles” now have the option to book their hotel stays and continue to earn SMILE Points, the loyalty program’s currency.
“We are excited to bring this partnership to our members. Booking.com is a global brand and well recognised in the market for their offering. With this partnership our members can continue to actively engage with the program even after they’ve completed their flight, and accumulate points faster so that they can redeem it on flynas products and services” says Paul Byrne – flynas CEO.
“Our plan is to continue partnering up with great brands like Booking.com to allow our members to continue earning SMILE Points across every aspect of their travel” says Paul Byrne – flynas CEO.
To earn SMILE Points, nasmiles members will be required to book their hotel stays through a co-branded platform managed by Booking.com. Before completing the booking process, nasmiles members will be prompted to enter their membership ID in order to earn SMILE Points.
Designed to reward members, SMILE Points earned can be redeemed for flights and other services, such as cabin upgrades, meals, preferred seat selection and much more.
With this new agreement, flynas is able to extend the benefits of its nasmiles loyalty program to not just to their existing members, but to new travellers choosing the leading low-cost carrier in Saudi Arabia.
