Garuda Indonesia has expanded its frequent flyer programme in what the airline promises is the first part of a loyalty overhaul.
Members can now buy miles, extend the expiry of miles and maintain their Garuda Frequent Flyers (GFF) tier while continuing to earn points when flying with Garuda and its partner airlines, hotels and tour operators.
Loyalty members will now also earn GFF miles when flying with Air France and KLM.
Uun Setiawan, the airline's vice president of Australia, New Zealand and South West Pacific, said: "These new options allow for greater freedom for our passengers, and they are the first part of our GFF revamp.
"With seven tiers within the GFF program, passengers have a growing range of opportunities to be rewarded for travelling with Garuda Indonesia.
"Garuda Indonesia has also recently enhanced partnership agreements with several travel and tourism operators, including a new frequent traveller program with Swiss Belhotel and new codeshare agreement with Indian airline Jet Airways."
Earlier this week, it was announced that Garuda Indonesia is to formally enter the Skyteam alliance in the spring (see news, December 16).
