Etihad Airways and Aldar Retail Sign Major Partnership Deal

To bring benefits to UAE-based Etihad Guest members

TLME News Service

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, and Aldar Properties PJSC (‘Aldar’), Abu Dhabi's leading listed property development, investment and management company, have entered into a historic partnership that brings benefits to UAE-based Etihad Guest members and shoppers in the UAE’s capital.

Through this exclusive agreement Etihad Guest members can now earn and spend their Etihad Guest Miles on purchases made with their Visa cards at three malls within Aldar’s retail portfolio - Yas Mall, World Trade Center Abu Dhabi (WTC) and Al Jimi Mall – collectively comprising over 650 retailers.

Members will earn one Etihad Guest Mile for every AED 3 spent on purchases with their Visa cards over AED 50, or can choose to seamlessly spend their miles for transactions over AED 50, making this one of the most generous retail reward partnerships in the UAE.

In a first for the Etihad Guest programme, members can now earn Tier Miles on purchases, allowing them to elevate their Etihad Guest Tier Status, regardless of if they have chosen to earn or spend their Etihad Guest Miles. Members will earn one Tier Mile per AED 3 when using a Visa card.

While visits to malls are currently subject to restrictions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this strategic partnership will bring benefits to customers and a boost to the Abu Dhabi economy as these protocols are eased.

To earn and spend miles, shoppers simply connect their Visa card to their Etihad Guest mobile app. The Etihad Guest app is fitted with the new ‘Miles on the Go’ technology allowing members to earn or spend miles when they swipe their linked Visa card in any of the three Aldar Malls.
