Companies that are members of Singapore Airlines (SIA)Â HighFlyer programme in Singapore and Australia can now earn HighFlyer points when flying on Lufthansa- and SWISS-operated flights ticketed by Singapore Airlines on eligible sectors.
Points will be awarded for tickets issued by SIA or Silkair, for travel betweenÂ Singapore, Australia, Germany, and Switzerland.
This partnership is part of the joint venture agreement signed by the two airline groups in November 2015, which aims to deepen cooperation in key markets in Europe, South-east Asia and Australia.
Both Lufthansa and SWISS are the first partner airlines to participate in the programme.
âWe are constantly looking to reward our corporates when they fly with us, and we will continue to expand our choice of airline rewards for our HighFlyer members,â said Singapore Airlines’ senior vice president sales and marketing, Campbell Wilson, in a statement.
The HighFlyer Programme, designed primarily for small- and medium-sized enterprises, allows companies to earn five HighFlyer points for every S$1 (US$0.76) spent on tickets booked through Singapore Airlinesâ corporate booking platform or an appointed travel agent. These points can be used as full payment, or part payment with a cash top-up, for tickets, upgrades and selected ancillaries used by employees of HighFlyer Programme participants.
