Gulf Air Falconflyer scheme a big hit
Manama, November 18, 2011
Gulf Air's recently launched Falconflyer programme, a revamped and improved version of its popular frequent flyer programme, has received overwhelming support from its customers.
Over 20,000 new members have signed up for the new Falconflyer since the launch of the programme with the Enrol Now and Win contest a couple of months ago.
Celebrating the success of the Falconflyer programme, Gulf Air recently honoured four lucky winners of the contest from across its network: Abdul Salam Ansari from Saudi Arabia, Uma Mahajan from India, Jemila Fereja from Bahrain, and Mohammad Saheb from the UAE.
The four winners, selected randomly from the newly enrolled members of the Falconflyer programme, each received a free Falcon Gold ticket to travel to one of Gulf Air's latest destinations Copenhagen, Milan, Geneva, and Nairobi.
"We've given our Falconflyer programme a facelift that reflects several exciting developments at Gulf Air in getting closer to our customers," said Gulf Air chief commercial officer Karim Makhlouf. "And the response we've received from our customers so far proves that we are indeed on the right track.
"Our customers are the most important factor that helps our business to thrive.
"Therefore, we are very keen on introducing a number of improvements in line with market changes on one hand and our passengers' needs on the other. The revamped Falconflyer programme is a result of this effort," he said.
The new loyalty programme is packed with privileges for all three categories of the programme's card holders.
For instance, Gold, Silver and Blue members get three free economy tickets to the GCC and Middle East region when travelling once to Manila on Falcon Gold.
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 and three years miles validity. - TradeArabia News Service
