Singapore Airlines (SIA) has added its LCC brand, Scoot, to the HighFlyer programme â€“ the flag carrier’s frequent-flyer programme for small- and medium-sized enterprises (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 offers many products and services suitable for the business traveller, such as our premium ScootBiz cabin on our 787 Dreamliner fleet, with in-seat power and Wi-Fi connectivity. Coupled with our expansive and growing network spanning 63 destinations, including longhaul points like Athens, Honolulu and soon, Berlin, Scoot’s inclusion will provide greater choice and connectivity to corporates in the HighFlyer programme,” said Scoot’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.
