Manama, March 14, 2011
American Express Middle East has announced the latest of its exciting offers with Gulf Air, as part of its longstanding partnership with the airline.
Under the new offer, Gulf Air Frequent Flyer members residing in Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE can get from 12,000 to 48,000 Membership Rewards Points upon successfully applying for an American Express Card. These points can be then redeemed for a unique range of rewards including free flights, hotel accommodation, car hire, and exciting new merchandise.
Existing American Express Middle East Cardmembers will also continue to benefit from the partnership with Gulf Air, as it enables them to convert their Membership Rewards points into Gulf Air Frequent Flyer Miles, earning one mile for every two Membership Rewards points. These miles are then turned into free flights and upgrades on the Gulf Air network.
“We are delighted to be able to work with Gulf Air to bring this offer, which represents great value for both American Express and Gulf Air Frequent Flyer members, to the market,” said Deepak Jain, vice president, Merchant Acquiring and Strategic Partnerships, American Express Middle East.
“With the launch of two more European destinations Milan and Geneva – in March, our FFP members not only have 49 exciting destinations to choose from but also get a chance to earn more miles when they buy tickets with American Express cards,” added Gulf Air chief commercial officer Kyle Haywood.-TradeArabia News Service
