Philippine Airlines’ Mabuhay Miles connects flyers to the world of luxury with its Million Miler and Premier Elite tiers
Since making the first trans-Pacific flight in 1944, Philippine Airlines has long upheld the standards for in-flight comfort, convenience, and global connectivity. Since then, the nation’s flag carrier has constantly introduced a number of innovations which have changed the way Filipinos travel across the globe, among which is its flagship Mabuhay Miles frequent flyer program.
This year, jetsetters can continue to enjoy the best of the Mabuhay Miles program, now redesigned for travellers of taste and distinction: the Million Miler and Premier Elite membership tiers.
A New Look for a New Age
A new Mabuhay Miles logo and more streamlined card design highlights the cardholder’s expanding access to numerous ways to makes the most of their miles from flying with partner airlines to shopping perks. Frequent flyers can also expect that they can go the extra mile, when it comes to their investments thanks to banking privileges under the revamped program. The new card design likewise emphasizes how PAL and its patrons continue to ride the winds of change thanks to constant improvement and innovation.
Mabuhay Miles partner companies offer a wide array of lifestyle options ranging from code-sharing with premiere international airlines, to collaborations with the leading financial groups, all the way to the most exclusive hotels and resorts that have set the standard for hospitality. These include All Nippon Airways and Etihad Airways as airline partners; Turkish Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Hawaiian Air, Gulf Air, Malaysia Airlines, WestJet of Canada, and China Airlines as flight code sharing partners.
It’s a small world, with millions of miles to explore, after all
On the hospitality front, cardholders may avail of their privileges through the extensive network of Marco Polo Hotels and Shangri-La hotels and resorts worldwide. Locally, they can enjoy Philippine hospitality at its finest with Hennan Resorts. Banking with the likes of HSBC, Citibank or Metrobank brings added mileage, along with getting around town via Avis and Hertz car rentals worldwide. Cardholders may also purchase travel essentials via Delsey and Samsonite or glean more miles from Mac books. And each use of one’s PNB Credit card also brings in the miles.
45,000 logged-in flight miles or 50 PAL one-way flights or 25 Business Class sector flights with airline and codesharing partners within a calendar year immediately upgrades one to Premier Elite status while at least 1,000,000 miles in 365 days earns the Million Miler lifetime membership status. Premier Elite makes travel more convenient and pleasurable as cardholders are listed on priority boarding and are entitled to additional baggage allowance for their flights. Million Milers may share the added convenience with a travelling companion who may also enjoy such privileges as choice seats and waived ticketing service charges. Both tiers open up upgraded travel certificates and access to airport lounges.
Truly, a Mabuhay Miles card number is more than a registry entry, serving as gate pass to the finest that an increasingly connected world has to offer.
