Etihad Guest, the loyalty programme of Etihad Airways, has partnered with Air Arabia’s loyalty programme AirRewards, to allow members of both schemes to benefit from reciprocal points and miles transfers.

When transferring miles, Etihad Guest members will now receive 1 AirReward Point for every 2 Etihad Guest Miles.

AirRewards can be transferred to Etihad Guest Miles at the conversion rate of 2 AirRewards Points for every 1 Etihad Guest Mile.

To benefit from this new partnership, customers should visit their Etihad Guest or AirRewards account online to link their accounts and transfer Points and Miles between the two airlines.

In a statement, Etihad said that Etihad Guest Miles can now be redeemed for Air Arabia flights, meals and baggage.

In 2020, Etihad Airways announced its codeshare with the capital’s first low-cost carrier, Air Arabia Abu Dhabi.

In response to the pandemic, Etihad Guest ensured that no member had their status downgraded by gifting monthly bonus Tier Miles, offering double Tier Miles promotions, reinstating expired miles and removing the GuestSeat change fee.

“This partnership will provide both Etihad Guest and AirRewards with the opportunity to significantly broaden the travel reach, rewards and programme benefits for our respective members. The collaboration is designed to both engage with new customers, while further improving the benefits for our existing loyalty members,” said Kim Hardaker, head of Loyalty and Partnerships at Etihad Airways.
