With BusinessConnect, you and your business come first. We reward loyal partners. And we make it easier than ever for you to be rewarded.

1. The business earns miles
Your business earns Etihad Guest miles depending on what cabin your employees fly in. So if your employees fly in Business Class they earn miles for your business at 75% of the Etihad Guest mileage earning rate for that route.


Cabin Percentage
First 75%
Business 75%
Economy 75%


For example: the Etihad Guest mileage earning rate for flying from Dublin to Abu Dhabi return in Business Class is 12,894 miles. And so your business would earn 9,670 miles (75%) for your BusinessConnect account.

2. The traveler earns miles

All travellers must be a member of Etihad Guest and will therefore earn miles accordingly. This means miles are awarded easily – to both the individual and the business.

3. Manage your account

Your nominated administrator can manage your BusinessConnect account online. Simply log in with your BusinessConnect account number and password and view the flights your travellers take and the miles accrued.

4. Choice of booking options

When it comes to booking your flight, you have a choice of booking options. Simply choose the channel that suits you and your business best.

5. Redeem miles

Your travellers’ miles are added together and you’ll quickly start earning miles that you can redeem for flights, upgrades and a choice of thousands of items from our Reward Shop.

For example: if 8 of your company’s travellers take a Business Class return trip from Dublin to Abu Dhabi, your company will earn enough miles to redeem one Business Class flight from Dublin to Abu Dhabi, with over 6,000 miles left over to spend on products from our Reward Shop.
