Gary Stevenson, Account Manager - Pownall & Hampson Ltd
“We signed up around five years ago and have had several upgrades and other benefits, saving the company a substantial amount of money. As Etihad continues to develop its network, the benefits can only increase.
We are an Ireland-based bedding manufacturer, catering to the UK and European markets with a Sales Office in the UAE and production partners in China, Pakistan and India. Good access to a large number of destinations - Asia in particular - is vitally important to our business. Etihad Airways and BusinessConnect have proved to be the perfect partner. Loyalty equals rewards – it’s that simple and that’s the way it should be.”
Arpit Agrawal, Account Manager - Vishal Group
“Many businesses don’t realise what a great programme this is – the company and employee both get miles! The best part of Etihad BusinessConnect is the savings on travel costs. We’ve had instances where we’ve booked long haul flights on Economy, and have used BusinessConnect to upgrade to Business Class. We do at least three flights a month with Etihad Airways and BusinessConnect has been a great incentive to choose Etihad Airways over any other airline. In the long term, it brings a substantial level of comfort (knowing you have enough miles), cost-saving and as importantly, a chance to enjoy the state of the art facilities that Etihad Airways offers."
Assiya Abilmazhinova, Account Manager - BG International Limited
"The best benefit is that the traveller and the company both have more options to spend miles or points – to book flights, get upgrades or buy products from the Reward Shop. And the company can save on travel costs. As the Account Manager, I find the programme very open and straightforward. The Etihad BusinessConnect team has always been very supportive and helpful with the queries I had."
Nadzeya Trastsian, Account Manager - BELSPETSVNESHTECHNIKA
"Our company was amongst the first in Belarus to join Etihad BusinessConnect in 2013. As our business activity is concentrated in the South-East Asian markets, more and more of our employees become loyal to Etihad Airways. The connections are convenient and the miles get them upgraded. Being a semi-governmental organisation, our middle management employees are not entitled to Business Class tickets. Etihad BusinessConnect upgrades offers a solution, especially on long-haul flights. Managing the account is very easy and our employees can get their tickets upgraded even just a few days before travel."
