EVA Air launches new option for Infinity MileageLands members to buy miles; enabled by Points International
Members could receive up to an additional 65%* in bonus award miles when they make a purchase by January 13, 2022
TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Good news for EVA Air’s most loyal customers looking to get a head start on planning their next trip away. Just launched in time for the holidays, between now and January 13, 2022, EVA’s Infinity MileageLands members can receive up to 65% in additional bonus award miles when they buy miles with Purchase Miles.
The perfect gift for those who love to travel, this time-limited promotion has been launched to celebrate the introduction of the new and enhanced member benefit, which has been implemented in collaboration with global leader in loyalty commerce, Points (NASDAQ: PCOM) (TSX: PTS).
“While COVID-19 has changed the way people travel, EVA has been hard at work, identifying and developing new and better ways to give our passengers and Infinity MileageLands members the safest, most comfortable and enjoyable flying experiences possible,” said EVA President Clay Sun. “We are enthusiastic about serving the post-pandemic aviation market and pleased to collaborate with Points to provide a versatile platform where our frequent flyer program members can easily buy miles for travel to the destinations of their dreams. We look forward to the success of this collaboration and to exploring future opportunities to work with Points.”
With Purchase Miles, customers enjoy an improved experience when taking advantage of special rates to buy up to 150,000 additional miles each calendar year. Miles are redeemable against travel across EVA Air/UNI Air international flight and its Star Alliance partners’ global flight network. Miles can also be used to upgrade existing flight bookings to seats in higher cabins with EVA Air/UNI Air international flight and its Star Alliance partners.
Rob MacLean, CEO of Points, commented on the news, “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with EVA Air and to be helping their most loyal customers to enjoy more convenience and value when planning their next trip away. With Purchase Miles, members can ensure that their balance is ready for their next flight reward. Plus, if they take advantage of the service right now, they’ll benefit from additional bonus miles; making vacation planning that bit easier so they can get away even sooner.”
