The majority of Ukrainian airlines often introduce various incentive programs and special bonus offers in order to attract more clients and become the most renowned airlines in the country.
Yet ‘International Ukraine Airlines’ does not need to create something bizarre and novel – it has not taken long for these airlines to prove its high competitiveness and fantastic popularity among the passengers. Thus, it worked out a unique combination of services and options for the travelers to enjoy their flights that is called ‘Panorama-Club’ card. It is a program for the constantly flying passengers of the ‘International Ukraine Airlines’. Participation in this program is individual and its every participant can have one account only. Organizations, corporations and other legal entities are not enabled to take part in the Program.
A participant is obliged to keep a temporary card till the receipt of a plastic card. A plastic card is given, provided a participant has got 3000 club miles on the account ( a mile is a calculation unit in the Program). All miles accrued on a participant’s account are divided into 2 categories: club miles and bonus miles.
Club miles are accrued when flying with ‘International Ukraine Airlines’ regular flights ( IUA code – PS) and when flying with *code-sharing flights if there is a ticket reservation for the flight with PS code indication.
*Code-sharing flights are the flights of mutual operation carried out by two or more airlines.
As for the bonus miles, this Ukraine airline accrues them when flying with companies-partners, using their services and special offers.
The miles quantity for every destination needed is calculated according to the IATA standards. In its turn, ‘International Ukraine Airlines’ reserves the right to define the quantity of the miles accrued for the flights and services of the Program partners. It should be mentioned, the miles are calculated under the paid tariff and booking class. Every Participant of the Program has his/her own personal account for the accumulated miles registration. Miles or an account of one Participant can not be grossed up with the miles or account of another Participant or transferred for consideration to another program of a permanent passenger. At that, it’s impossible to exchange miles for money.
Miles are automatically accrued to the participant’s account given that a card number has been stated when booking a ticket and the card has been produced at the check-in desk in the airport.
As a rule, the miles for ‘International Ukraine Airlines’ are accrued during 2 weeks, while the miles for airlines-partners flights are accrued within 8 weeks; the miles for other partners services are accrued every quarter. And, finally, when a Participant has a sufficient quantity of miles on his/her account, he/she is enabled to book a prize ticket for any IUA regular flight or the one of an airline-partner.
All in all, ‘Panorama-Club’ card is a vivid example of a wise airline policy and its ability to offer the best services and conditions to its potential clients.
