Etihad Airways gives back to travel agents
Abu Dhabi, October 4, 2012
One travel agent in Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai will each win a 10-day trip of a lifetime sponsored by Etihad Airways as part of the airline’s ongoing drive to reward agents for their contribution to the airline’s success.
The airline has launched a special trade incentive promotion under which it will provide four Pearl Business class tickets to the Seychelles, Thailand or Kenya, and a four night stay in Abu Dhabi.
While in Abu Dhabi, the winning agents will each enjoy two nights’ accommodation at the five-star Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara, two nights’ accommodation at the five-star Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi overlooking the renowned Yas Marina Circuit Formula1 race track, complimentary entrance to Ferrari World, daily breakfast and transfers.
Further, at the exotic destination of choice, the winning agents will each enjoy five nights’ stay at a five-star property including daily breakfast and transfers.
The promotion is tied to Etihad SuperSeller, a travel agent incentive programme launched in March 2012 that allows agents to earn Etihad Guest Miles on every booking made.
To enter ‘The Great Office Escape’ promotion, travel agents must first register at etihadagents.com and receive a SuperSeller APIN number which can then be entered into eligible bookings.
For each booking made between October 1 and December 31, with a SuperSeller APIN number included, agents will be automatically entered, so the more bookings made, the higher the chance of winning.
For every Diamond First Class booking made agents will receive five entries and for each Pearl Business Class booking they will receive three entries.
One grand prize winner will be randomly drawn from the eligible entrants on January 21, 2013.
‘The Great Office Escape’ follows the ‘Live Free for a Year’ and ‘Double Your Salary’ travel agent promotions which have also run this year.
Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ chief commercial officer, said: “Following the roaring success of our earlier programmes, we continue to look for exciting ways to thank our valued travel agents. What better way to show our appreciation to our loyal supporters than to give them an exotic vacation rivalling those they regularly sell to their clients.” – TradeArabia News Service
