Double status miles for Austrian frequent flyers
10 September 2009
Flying with Austrian is now worth double for Miles & More members: In the next two months, they will be earning double status miles on each flight within Austria and Europe.
Austrian is taking this step to help customers achieve, retain or enhance their status in the Miles & More programme. Miles & More members must simply register at miles-and-more.com/statusmiles to participate in the “Double Status Miles” campaign.
The campaign begins on 1 September and ends on 31 October 2009. Aside from flights operated by Austrian, customers can also accrue double status miles on flights with Adria Airways, Air Dolomiti, Croatia Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, Luxair and SWISS.
With status miles, Miles & More members acquire and retain the status of frequent traveller and of Senator.
Status customers enjoy an array of privileges, including lounge access at airports, waiting list priority or extra allowance for free baggage.
Frequent traveller status is acquired by members for accumulating 35,000 status miles in a given calendar year regardless of their domicile. Members residing in Austria acquire a Senator card after accruing 100,000 status miles.
