Until now there was no way to credit flights on Philippine Airlines to another partner. Mabuhay Miles (owned by Philippine Airlines) was the only way to credit miles.
Now Etihad and Philippine Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement and announced reciprocal benefits for both frequent flier programs:
Initially, the airline partners will place their respective 'PR' and 'EY' codes on each other's Manila-Abu Dhabi flights to operate a combined total of 19 weekly flights between the two capitals. Etihad Airways will also place its 'EY' code on Philippine Airlines flights from Manila to 20 destinations throughout the Philippines in the first phase, increasing to 28 during 2014.
Members of Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles Frequent Flyer Program and Etihad Airways Etihad Guest will enjoy reciprocal loyalty program benefits including miles earn and redemption, priority check-in and boarding, baggage handling and lounge access across both networks.
During September and October, double miles will be awarded to Etihad Guest members travelling on any Philippine Airlines flight and to Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles members travelling on Etihad Airways flights.
Etihad also posted some impressive revenue numbers today:
Total revenue: USD3.2 billion, +28% year-on-year;
Revenue from codeshare/equity partners: USD471 miilion, +31%;
Passenger numbers: 6.7 million, +22%;
Capacity (ASKs): +19%;
Cargo volume: 268,713 tonnes, +25%;
Fleet: 102, +29%. [more – original PR]
