Best Airline Promotion KrisFlyer Erwin Widjaja

Add this category to the sweep of awards that Singapore KrisFlyer has earned and won in 2022. Their “Earn Status Without Flying” promotion bested all others by allowing KrisFlyer and PPS Club members the ability to accumulate status credits as they shopped, spent, or converted partner reward points to KrisFlyer miles. This KrisFlyer year-long campaign counted towards status renewal or membership tier upgrade snd it earned a 9.08 rating. Ranking second, was the Club Vistara promotion called Milestone for which members taking 4 flights would earn 1,000 bonus Club Vistara Points. Well rated at 8.80. It’s delightful to see Qantas at the #3 spot with their Celebrate The Trans-Tasman Bubble promotion in which Frequent Flyer members were welcomed back on board with 5,000 bonus points and double status credits when they registered and made bookings May 10-15, 2021 for travel May 17, 2021 – February 28, 2022. Rated at 7.22 by their members, Qantas made a great effort to put the Covid years behind. In the #4 and #5 positions, we’re happy to see two Middle East loyalty programs, Emirates and Qatar, qualify in the top five positions for their promotions. Emirates featured the catchy Earn-A-Mile-A-Minute in Dubai which coincided with Expo 2020, the UAE’s 50th-year celebration, and all of the unforgettable experiences that Dubai has to offer. Skywards members earned 1 Skywards Mile for every minute spent in the city during the Expo 2020 global showcase from 1 October 2021 onward. This was clearly imaginative. But let’s not forget Qatar and their FIFA Offer. As the Official Frequent Flyer Programme of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar, Privilege Club members received 14 days early access to FIFA packages and when return flights opened for the first games of the World Cup, members were able to enjoy 100 bonus elite Qpoints for all bookings made that day for the specific travel period. Given the frenzy of the FIFA World Cup, it’s clear this was popular and earned its own 6.98 rating.
