Members of Philippine Airlines’ Mabuhay Miles frequent flyer program can now earn points per night at Swiss-Belhotel properties globally under a new partnership between the two companies.Under the terms of the deal, Mabuhay members will earn 250 miles per night for every two-night stay or longer at any Swiss-Belhotel property worldwide. The terms mean a minimum of 500 miles will be awarded for each qualifying stay. Swiss-Belhotel currently operates 70 hotels across Australasia, Asia and the Middle East.

Mabuhay Miles is the Philippines’ most popular frequent flyer program and currently has over four million members across four tiers – Classic, Elite, Premier Elite and Million Miler. The tie-up applies to four and five-star Swiss-Belhotel properties, while three-star Swiss-Belinn hotels will see travellers earn 150 points per night.

Swiss-Belhotel Chairman and President, Gavin M Faull, said he was delighted to be joining forces with a key program to reward frequent business travellers across Asia.

“There are many synergies between our two companies. Swiss-Belhotel is present in many destinations that are popular with Filipino travellers and overseas workers, including Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Qatar, Bahrain and the UAE. Following the recent launch of Swiss-Belhotel Blulane, we can also now offer two excellent hotels in the Metro Manila area.”
