With its newly launched ‘Air China Business Travel Card’ series of prepaid debit cards, Air China says it has become China’s first airline to introduce frequent flyer program-related financial cards.
Air China has integrated the services it offers through its e-commerce and frequent flyer programs to launch the cards, of which there are four types available. They are the Distinguished Travel Card; the Clear Travel Card; the Smooth Travel Card and the Easy Travel Card.
The cards can be used to store credit, book tickets, collect frequent flyer miles and use complimentary services. The cards come with a credit value of between 20,000 and 300,000 Chinese yuan renmimbi (US$2,932 to US$43,981).
Air China has launched several promotions and limited-edition versions of the business travel cards. The first 99 customers to purchase a limited edition Distinguished Travel Card receive a complimentary first-class roundtrip ticket to any of Air China’s international destinations. The first 500 customers to purchase a limited-edition Distinguished Travel Card will receive a Gold PhoenixMiles Card.
The first 199 customers to purchase a limited edition Clear Travel Card receive a complimentary first-class roundtrip ticket to any of Air China’s domestic destinations. The first 1,000 customers to purchase a limited edition Clear Travel Card receive a Silver PhoenixMiles Card.
The first 299 customers to purchase one of the 10,000 limited-edition Smooth Travel Cards receive a complimentary economy round-trip ticket to any of Air China’s domestic destinations, plus a complimentary credit of CNY 3,000 (US$440).
The first 399 customers to purchase one of the 200,000 limited-edition Easy Travel Cards receive a complimentary economy one-way ticket to any of Air China’s domestic destinations, plus complimentary credit of CNY 1,000 (US$147).
