Miles & More, Europe’s leading frequent flyer and awards programme, is launching its new loyalty initiative in the UK. In cooperation with Affiniture Cards and Cornèrcard UK, Miles & More is introducing the Global Traveller Cards, bringing together the benefits of both Diners Club and Mastercard.
Miles & More allows its members to earn award miles when flying with its partner airlines, including top European carriers, such as, Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines, as well as at partner hotels, car rentals and airport shops. Miles can be redeemed into airplane tickets, flight upgrades or to access numerous other benefits offered by over 300 partners worldwide.
Members subscribing to the Miles & More Global Traveller Cards get a bonus of 5,000 award miles and will earn 1.25 award miles for each pound spent anywhere in the world with the Diners Club and Mastercard card. All award miles held by account holders do not have an expiration date and can be collected and redeemed at any time.
In the first quarter of 2019, Lufthansa Group airlines welcomed over 20 million passengers. The Lufthansa Group is the world’s largest aviation group in terms of turnover as well as the market leader in Europe’s airline sector. The Group’s network carriers, with their premium brands of Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines, serve the home markets from their Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich and Vienna hubs. Lufthansa Group airlines serve 247 destinations in 81 countries, and offer 17,554 weekly frequencies during the summer of 2019.
“The introduction of the new Miles & More Global Traveller Card in the UK is great news for our customers, who will benefit from a complete offer to fit the lifestyle and habits of frequent and avid travellers and an overall experience with the Lufthansa Group,” said Andreas Koester, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland for Lufthansa Group.
With the launch of the Miles & More Global Traveller Cards in the UK, Miles & More is expanding its global visibility. More than 1.4 million Miles & More cards are used by members of the programme in over 25 countries worldwide, primarily in Europe, America and Asia. Cardholders earn award miles with every card purchase.
The Miles & More programme is easy to get onboard. Members earn and redeem miles when flying with Lufthansa and roughly 40 airline partners, including 28 members of the Star Alliance, and with more than 270 non-aviation partners, including hotel, car rental, and lifestyle shops.
“We are proud at Cornèrcard UK to support the launch of the Miles & More co-branded card programme in the UK to offer a card that meets the needs of today’s technology, such as, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, and provide the flexibility, convenience and extra benefits to travellers’ needs,” added Robin Brigs, CEO of Cornèrcard UK.
