SHANGHAI - Mileslife, an innovative mileage earning App in China, welcomes Qatar Airways Privilege Club, as the 12th airline loyalty program partner. Mileslife App users can now earn Qmiles directly through daily lifestyle and travel spending. Along with the joining of Privilege Club, Mileslife has been expanding the frequent flyer network throughout Asia, Europe, America and finally, the Middle East, servicing frequent flyers around the globe.
Mileslife endeavors to cultivate and elevate the entire airline loyalty program industry in China as well as strengthen the connection between airlines, customers and merchants. Launched in November 2015, Mileslife quickly partnered with China's leading loyalty programs including China Southern Airlines Sky Pearl Club, China Eastern Airlines Eastern Miles, Hainan Airlines Fortune Wings Club, PhoenixMiles and Sichuan Airlines Golden Panda. The company also became the first Chinese start-up that partnered with British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus, Miles & More, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, United MileagePlus and EVA Air Infinity MileageLands.
The newly joined Privilege Club is the frequent flyer programme of Qatar Airways. This partnership is the first time ever that Qatar Airways has collaborated with a local company in China. Qatar Airways was recently voted Airline of the Year at the Skytrax Awards 2017, as well as being awarded World's Best Business Class, Best First Class Airline Lounge and Best Airline in the Middle East. With the awards they have earned, Qatar Airways has won the confidence of the travelling public and with their extensive network coverage, they have become more popular with many frequent flyers in China due to their flights that connect Europe and China.
Mileslife has been expanding over 2,000 mileage earning opportunities for users, ranging from mid-to-high end restaurants and leading spas to boutique hotels, luxury resorts, recreational activities and travel packages. Once users pay via the Mileslife App, they can earn up to 1 airline mile with every 1 RMB (or equivalent) that they have spent and the miles earned will be directly credited into the frequent flyer account of the user within 3-5 working days after the transaction.
"We've noticed most of the frequent flyers are loyal customers who tend to purchase value-oriented products," explained Troy Liu, founder and CEO of Mileslife. "After more-than-a-year operation, frequent flyers and our partners could distinguish the difference between Mileslife and other travel-related Apps, and recognize our value."
As a renowned loyalty program expert in China, he has performed consultant services and training for many international hotel chains and airlines. Visiting over 100 countries by earning and earning miles and points in the past 15 years, he also cast light on these in his million-word blogs on Boardingarea.
Qatar Airways Vice President Customer Loyalty and Relationship Management, Dr. Ian Di Tullio, said: "We are excited about this innovative way to connect frequent flyers with daily lifestyle spending. Mileslife provides an excellent opportunity for us to activate the frequent flyer market in China and offers even more opportunities for our members to earn benefits, privileges and awards."
