Indonesia’s national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia (GA) has become the 25th frequent flyer partner of leading global hotel group Worldhotels.
Garuda Indonesia joins an extensive stable of Worldhotels alliances with frequent flyer programmes from some of the world’s flagship international carriers including Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa Air France/KLM, Singapore Airlines and United Airlines.
As with other frequent flyer partnerships, members of the Garuda Indonesia Frequent Flyer (GFF) programme (http://gff.garuda-indonesia.com) can now earn miles on qualifying stays at Worldhotels‘ network of 500 affiliate properties in 250 destinations and 65 countries worldwide.
"Our expanding airline alliances are a great value proposition that perfectly complements our fast-growing portfolio of hotels and destinations in the Asia-Pacific“ said Worldhotels Executive Vice President Asia-Pacific, Roland Jegge.
“Having the largest network of airline partners among all independent hotel groups brings significant benefits to affiliate hotels, airlines and guests alike.“
“The latest partnership with Garuda Indonesia underlines our ambitious plans for expansion in the Indonesian market, where we expect to add more than 30 hotels within the next 10 years. This will grow Worldhotels domestic Indonesian offerings in addition to extending the global portfolio.“
Garuda Indonesia joins Worldhotels as the carrier embarks on a modernised new era – upgrading its service to become one of the highest-rated airlines in Asia.
Garuda Indonesia is dramatically expanding its fleet with brand new Boeing 737-800 ‘Next Generation’ aircraft and Airbus A330-200s.
Its regional network is also expanding, flying to most ASEAN destinations with the most extensive domestic route network in Indonesia.
Garuda Indonesia was recognised as ‘Most Improved Airline 2010’ in the influential Skytrax 2010 World Airline Awards.
Until 31 August 2012, frequent flyers can benefit from Worldhotels’ special offer “World Treats” including 1000 miles and breakfast (www.worldhotels.com/world-treats).
