Singapore Airlines launches Highflyer Programme for small & medium enterprises
Singapore Airlines has launched an all-new Singapore Airlines HighFlyer programme for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to get more mileage out of flights on company business. The new SME travel programme is designed to reward both businesses and their and employees when they fly with Singapore Airlines and SilkAir.
SMEs will earn HighFlyer points while employees continue to earn KrisFlyer miles each time an employee flies with Singapore Airlines or SilkAir, making it a more rewarding way to travel for business. With no minimum annual travel spend required, SMEs earn five HighFlyer points for every S$1 spend on tickets booked through Singapore Airlines’ booking platform or an appointed travel agent.
Businesses have the flexibility of choosing how and when to utilise HighFlyer points earned, with the option to offset future ticket purchases partially or in full for flights on Singapore Airlines or SilkAir to more than 100 destinations across 30 countries.
Kate Mayo, Singapore Airlines Commercial Manager New Zealand, said “97% of businesses in New Zealand have fewer than 20 employees, which means that the volume of travel these businesses do, often doesn’t reach the required limits of our corporate travel programmes. Our HighFlyer programme lets us bridge the gap between the programmes we can offer large corporates, and the benefits we offer to our individual frequent flyer members. Now SMEs can take advantage of business rewards when its employees are travelling for business, while the individual traveller will still accrue their own frequent flyer benefits – it’s a win-win. We are confident that this new offering will be well received locally and will be beneficial to both businesses and employees who travel frequently.”
Through a self-service web portal, SMEs can check HighFlyer points balance, utilise HighFlyer points, manage travellers and bookings, and download e-statements.
Singapore Airlines Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, Mr Campbell Wilson, said, “We are pleased to launch the Singapore Airlines HighFlyer programme for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises. We are always looking for more ways to delight our customers and make their journey with us more rewarding. The Singapore Airlines HighFlyer programme highlights Singapore Airlines’ commitment to constantly enhance the benefits for our corporate clients and business travellers.”
Businesses that reach a stipulated annual spend will have the choice of transferring to the Singapore Airlines Corporate Travel Programme, a corporate programme for large businesses to enjoy corporate fares and additional benefits.
