RE: How To Stretch Your Dollars With SkyPass
Dear Korean Air Passengers,
Korean Air Skypass: Really Love This Frequent Flyer Program
Don’t just pay out for your ticket… Make the money you spend a long-term investment! If you’ve never bothered with Korean airline Skypass membership application, you should really consider converting the frequent fares you pay to precious and highly-rewarding mileage points.
For one, membership is open to all; even children under 12 can go for junior membership. Secondly, it’s free and validity last the lifetime.
With Korean Air being the founding member of SkyTeam, the second-largest airline alliance after Oneworld, it means you can earn mileage even when travelling with any of its 17 airline partners across the continents with 3 more on the way; such as Delta Air Lines, Aeroflot, China Airlines, Middle East Airlines and Vietnam Airlines. But best of all, you can let the mileage grow even off the runway.
Earning Mileage Easier Than You Imagined
Fundamentally, Skypass allows you to earn miles each time you travel the distance with Korean Air and its associate carriers. If you’re constantly making trips to cities like New York, London, Bangkok or Tokyo, it’s time you bank-in your mileage as Korean Air offers full-fare tickets with 50%-165% accrual rates for its 130 cities covering 45 countries in service. Even local Korea roundtrips can fetch as high as 200%, depending on class you book.
There’s even more…. Book your stay with InterContinental Hotels Group and earn 500 miles/stay or choose over 30 other hotels/resorts worldwide to enjoy this benefit. Alternatively, solve your transportation issues while travelling overseas with Hertz Rent-A-Car rental and reap 250-500 miles/qualifying rentals besides 10% rental discount. Or go with Avis in Europe to save up to 25% besides earning 500 miles/rental.
And don’t stop collecting mileage even when you’re taking a hiatus from roaming. Collect miles even when you’re shopping online. Or conduct money-exchange or fund-transfer via Skypass partners like Citi Bank to get the mileage running. And in conjunction with Skypass 10th anniversary, apply for a SkyBlue Skypass Credit Card to generate miles with every purchase and earn 10,000 bonus miles even before you swipe it.
Flexible Membership Maintenance
Adopting the membership structure of its alliance, SkyTeam; Korean Air Skypass also rank its members under Basic, Elite and Elite Plus status whereby you typically enter Skypass membership at the basic level. As you achieved 50,000 miles based on their prescribed distance flown ratio between Korean Air and other SkyTeam carriers or fulfilling 40 qualifying flights on Korean Air, you’ll advance into Elite level as Morning Calm Club member.
Clock beyond 500,000 miles and you’ll be awarded the Elite Plus status under Morning Calm Premium Club. However, Korean Air distinguishes their Elite Plus members hitting over 1,000,000 miles quota by honoring them Million Miler status, giving them even more benefits despite still parking under Elite Plus level.
But of course, there are certain mileage targets you’ll need to meet over the 2-years period to retain the Elite statuses. So what if you’re earning steady mileage but your sibling is short of the few miles to redeem that ticket discount? Simply transfer the mileage to your family member via the Skypass Family program! It’s just so flexible and versatile in times of need….
Interesting Rewards & Redemption Plan
Being members to frequent-flyer programs that associates with large network of carriers such as Skypass really has its edge in bringing you world-class privileges. At the fundamental level, enjoy Bonus Awards such as checking seat availability, redeeming award tickets that offer a cut on full-fare rates on Korean Air flights and exchange miles for class upgrade as well.
Elite members would of course be entitled to exclusive check-in at the Morning Calm counter while Elite Plus enjoys even better check-in service at First Class counters in airports across the participating SkyTeam members.
And we bet business travelers would definitely be checking out the sky lounges. Recline into their spacious and serene waiting area while enjoying some quiet reading or wireless Internet-surfing between snacks and beverages prior to boarding.
