Philip­pine Air­lines’ Mabuhay Miles con­nects fly­ers to the world of lux­ury with its Mil­lion Miler and Premier Elite tiers

Philippine Tatler Traveller - - Art Of Luxury -

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.
