Accor and Hainan Airlines have announced a new partnership for members of their respective loyalty programs, Le Club AccorHotels and Fortune Wings Club, with a range of benefits to make their travel experiences richer and more rewarding.
This new partnership enables Le Club AccorHotels (LCAH)’ members to earn rewards points when flying with Hainan Airlines by converting 7,000 Fortune Wings Club points into 1,000 LCAH rewards points. At the same time, it will enhance the experience of Le Club AccorHotels members as they will have the opportunity to redeem their rewards points into Fortune Wings Club miles to benefit from awards tickets and upgrades with Hainan Airlines. Every 2,000 LCAH points equals to 1,000 Fortune Wing Club points. Conversions are easy and fully digital with an efficient points management system.
This is an exciting partnership for frequent travellers who are members of both programs because it allows them to purchase stays and discounts for their next trip at more than 3,500 hotels ranging from luxury to economy in joint destinations. They can also benefit from premium experiences and exclusive themed packages curated by Accor which include access to live music concerts, food festivals and sporting venues such as Paris Saint-Germain VIP box and tickets. These assets will be available through the new Accor rebranded loyalty program ALL – Accor Live Limitless to be launched in Q4 2019.
The partnership allows elevated reward value for Accor’s loyalty customers throughout a network of almost 110 destinations serviced by Hainan Airlines, Grand China Air, Tianjin Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines, Lucky Air, Capital Airlines, Fuzhou Airlines, Suparna Airlines, Urumqi Air and Guangxi Beibu Gulf Airlines.
Jason Liu, Vice Marketing President of Hainan Airlines, said: “Hainan Airlines Fortune Wings Club is delighted to further enhance the benefits offered to our members by partnering with Accor. This unique partnership will provide a rewarding travel experience to our members by offering them even more options to earn and redeem their points at some of the best hotels and resorts in China and around the world. We aim to forge connections through our global network, and we are committed as to strengthening ties between the east and west. Our partnership with Accor will surely engage our members by adding a new world of exciting offers.”
Accor and Hainan Airlines have a strong partnership since 2018 when Sofitel, the French luxury brand of Accor, partnered with Hainan Airlines Hai Dream to launch a premium collection of its iconic Sofitel MyBed TM products across the carrier’s business class. Business class passengers flying onboard Hainan Airlines can experience the ultimate sleep-time bliss with the luxurious Sofitel MyBed™ in the sky.
Le Club AccorHotels is the biggest hotel loyalty programs in the world, excluding the U.S. With the recent integration of Raffles, Fairmont and Swissôtel properties into Le Club AccorHotels, there are more than 57 million members globally including 18 million in Asia Pacific.
