Members of Malaysia Airlines’ Enrich frequent flyer programme can now earn miles when staying at participating Regal Hotels International properties, following the launch of a strategic partnership between the two companies.

Starting today, Enrich members can earn 600 miles for each eligible stay at a participating Regal Hotels property and 300 miles when staying at participating Iclub hotels. Eligible properties in the Regal and Iclub portfolio include hotels in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dezhou, Foshan and Xian.

Commenting on the partnership, Malaysia Airlines’ head of Enrich and loyalty, Khairul Nisa Ismal, said: “The partnership is timely as Malaysia Airlines has already mounted the second daily flight between Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai. For members who are planning to visit Hong Kong and stay in Regal properties there, they can look forward to flying the Airbus A330, which offers the comfort of a fully flat business class seat.”

Malaysia Airlines joins a list of 20 airlines currently partnering with Regal. These include: Air China, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Asiana Airlines, ANA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, Etihad, Eva Air, Hong Kong Airlines, Japan Airlines, Jet Airways, Korean Air, Philippine Airlines, Qantas, Singapore Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic.;
