Singapore Airlines (SIA) has added its LCC brand, Scoot, to the HighFlyer programme – the former’s frequent-flyer programme for SMEs.
From May 2, corporate members of SIA’s HighFlyer programme will be able to earn five HighFlyer points for every S$1 (US$0.75) spent on tickets if their SIA or SilkAir travel itineraries include a Scoot-operated flight segment and are booked through SIA’s corporate booking platform or an appointed travel agent, for eligible booking classes and destinations.
These points may be used as full payment, or part payment for SIA and SilkAir tickets, upgrades and selected ancillaries.
Highflyer members will also have the option to redeem HighFlyer points for travel on Scoot-operated flights later this year.
Scoot’s inclusion in the HighFlyer programme marks the latest addition to its many existing products and services suitable to business travellers, such as the premium ScootBiz cabin on its 787 Dreamliner fleet, with in-seat power and Wi-Fi connectivity, said the carrier’s CEO, Lee Lik Hsin, in a press statement.
Earlier in April, SIA announced that it was adding Lufthansa and Swiss as partner airlines to the HighFlyer programme, where SMEs could obtain points on eligible sectors flown by the carriers.
