Program Benefits
Etihad Guest is unlike any other loyalty programme because it’s designed exclusively around you. Fly with us and watch your rewards build quickly towards tailor-made special offers and valuable recognition that you can use in all sorts of familiar and unexpected places.

How are we so unique?

Miles+Cash - If you don’t have enough miles for a Reward, you can use a combination of miles and cash. You can decide exactly how many miles you want to use and pay the rest in cash with our Miles+Cash feature.

Immediate rewards - with our 1MileRedemption feature, fly once and enjoy instant rewards. All you need is 1 mile and you can use our Miles+Cash feature to redeem for your favorite Reward.

Earn Miles on cash spent - When booking your flight rewards using our Miles+Cash feature, you even earn miles on the cash spent on that reward.

No blackout periods & Any Seat availability - Etihad Guest lets you book even the very last seat of any specific flight if you have the required number of miles, using our GuestSeat and OpenSeat concept. Also, we do not restrict your flexibility with blackout dates.

The widest choice - redeem for flights, products or services using our exclusive Reward Shop – there are currently more than 1,500 products available online.

Family Membership - Get your hands on your rewards faster than you ever expected by setting up a Family Membership. Up to nine members (Family Guests) can be enrolled into one Family Membership account. Every single Etihad Guest Mile earned by every Family Guest is collected into one Family Head’s account. Family Guests continue to build up their Tier Miles which means they can maintain their individual tier levels within the programme depending on their own travel.

Etihad Guest Miles can be redeemed instantly or built over time to enable you to book free flights, upgrades and more.

Spending your miles with Etihad Airways is easy.  At Etihad we don't place limits on when you can reward yourself by spending your Etihad Guest Miles.

Miles Expiry
Etihad Guest Miles are valid for 3 years from the date they are earned. The Etihad Guest programme has two dates in the calendar year when miles will expire: 30th June and 31st December. Any Etihad Guest Miles that are due to expire will be brought to your attention in the ‘your transactions’ page on the website and in your monthly e-statement. With so much choice on our Reward Shop and our unique Miles+Cash offering, it is almost impossible for you to loose out on your miles due to lack of choice.
