Etihad Guest, the frequent flyer program of Etihad Airways, is offering a tier match to their Gold tier (second from top-most) and inviting people to apply for the status match till March 15, 2015.

Etihad has long been offering status matches to Gold Elite tier, at least once a year. If you are in India and have a Citibank Prestige card, you anyways have an assured access to an Etihad Gold account, but if you don’t you should continue reading. Etihad Guest is a beneficial program for Indian frequent flyers, who travel on Jet Airways. Reciprocal benefits are available and you can use Etihad Guest miles to travel around India.

The program works best in case you are a frequent flyer with Etihad itself, or with one of their many Etihad Airways Partner airlines such as Jet Airways, Air Serbia, Virgin Australia and others. You get bonus miles, lounge access, extra baggage allowance amongst other benefits.

Here is how to apply:

  • Existing Etihad Guest members: Send us a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, copy of your latest miles statement along with your Etihad Guest membership number to EYGCorporate@etihad.ae
  • Non-Etihad Guest members:  Send us a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, copy of your latest miles statement along with your full name, email ID, date of birth, physical address and telephone number to EYGCorporate@etihad.ae

Etihad Guest is assuring you of a response in 2 weeks time, however, I wouldn’t bank on that assurance.

Tier Matching is not applicable to members of JetPrivilege and other equity partners of Etihad Airways.

One of the USPs for Etihad is to have Abu Dhabi airport as their home airport. Actually, they go hand in hand. Back in 2013, they managed to get approval for a Customs & Border Protection outpost from the USA, commonly known as preclearance. What this means is that the immigration & passport control formalities […]

Etihad Guest is the loyalty program of Etihad Airways, and I am trying to get a hang of it ever since they have been associated with Jet Airways. The thing is, Etihad is not such a great program on its own for mileage earning and burning, because the burn on Etihad’s own flights is dynamic […]
