The bells are ringing in the air and the time to ease the lockdown is approaching soon. The national carrier of the UAE is all set to welcome a host of passengers. Etihad Airways has launched the Etihad Travel Voucher.
The Voucher Deal The deal is pretty simple and attractive, the vouchers will be available between June 10th and 24th. All those who buy this voucher will get a 50% extra cash value from August onwards.
Robin Kamark, Chief Commercial Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Now, more than ever, we want to give the world something to look forward to. Valid for two years, Etihad Travel Voucher will give our guests plenty of time to plan their future trip, and with 50% extra credit, they will spend less on that well-deserved break”.
The New Loyalty Feature
Almost all loyalty deals keep the relationship healthy and exciting with the customers. Etihad Travel Voucher will also benefit the customers who book these now. The Etihad Travel Vouchers are available from $250 to a maximum of $65,000.
The incremental value from the voucher will be added to a travel account. Customers may avail the vouchers in the future as per their plans. This will result in a 50% discount to the customers when they buy an Etihad Airways ticket. The vouchers are valid till June 2023, this should be enough time for customers to make a new travel plan.
Moreover, these vouchers can also be used for flight upgrades. To purchase a voucher, passengers need to log in or create an Etihad Guest account (loyalty program) and contact Etihad via phone to make a purchase.
Interestingly, the Etihad Travel Vouchers can be bought as a gift for people you care for. The purchaser may not necessarily be the traveler.
Competition in the Air
Airlines are keen on securing the business, as they have been long and hard hit by the pandemic.
Qatar Airways had also initiated a similar program last month to gain the customer’s attention. This rivalry will also impact the ticket prices once the world is free from travel bans.
On the other hand, the customers will get a better tariff to fly as the race to gather business will result in competitive pricing. However, on the face of it, the Etihad Travel Voucher offer is a very generous offer.
This offer has the potential to generate good revenue for in the much-needed era of the pandemic. This will not only help Etihad with current bookings but also lead the way for future bookings.
