Mumbai, Aug 6 (UNI) FlySmiLes, the new frequent flyer rewards programme of SriLankan Airlines, has extended the time period for members of Skywards, the airline's previous frequent flyer programme to transfer their points, up to August 15.
SriLankan Airlines launched FlySmiLes in March as its partnership with Skywards ended. Existing Skywards Members were given a choice of transferring their points (known as Miles) in full or part to FlySmiLes.
FlySmiLes has three tiers of membership Gold, Silver, and Blue according to the number of miles flown by each member. Every mile flown is credited as one FlySmiLes Mile. Silver membership is for those who earn over 25,000 tier miles or fly a minimum of 20 sectors within a calendar year. Gold membership is for those with more than 50,000 tier miles or 40 sectors, a release issued by Srilankan airlines said here today.
Skywards and Sky Surfers members who wish to transfer points can forward a request to Skywards or the nearest Emirates office on or before August 15. Or they could forward the message using the feedback form on their respective Skywards accounts. When forwarding the request they need to indicate their FlySmiLes number. Miles transferred could be redeemed after 1st November 08.
Members of Skywards, who join FlySmiLes, would also get other rewards including free tickets to certain destinations.
