Etihad Cargo has unveiled its new loyalty program for freight forwarders called CargoConnect, a free mileage earning program that rewards companies for every booking made with the United Arab Emirates cargo operator.
CargoConnect is targeted at the small and medium-sized enterprise segment of the global cargo business, Etihad Cargo said in a written statement. The program allows CargoConnect members to earn Etihad Guest Miles for net revenue paid on Etihad Cargo. Some of the benefits include being able to redeem miles for flights, upgrades or one of more than 6,000 items in the Etihad Guest Rewards Shop.
Registered CargoConnect members will earn one Etihad Guest Mile for every $2 net revenue paid as general cargo, and four Etihad Guest Miles for every $2 net revenue paid as premium cargo. The program is open to freight forwarders without agreements already in place with Etihad Cargo.
Customers can register online at www.etihadcargo.com, and for those doing so before June 30, 2013, a bonus gift of 5,000 Etihad Guest Miles will be credited to their new CargoConnect account.
