For the first time ever in Vietnam, passengers can pay Cash & Miles for air tickets instead of just one method or another as before
In the quest towards smart, convenient, and optimised consumption trend, from September 2, 2019, for the first time ever in Vietnam passengers can pay Cash & Miles for air tickets instead of just one method or another as before. This programme is exclusively for Lotusmiles members purchasing tickets on the website or at ticket offices of Vietnam Airlines. The carrier is working on the implementation of this payment method on the mobile application.
Accordingly, starting from just 2000 Lotusmiles miles per passenger per flight, members can use miles to pay for a part or all of the flight ticket’s value for flights operated by Vietnam Airlines (not applicable for payment of taxes, fees, and additional costs). The value of the miles used for the payment depends on the time of purchase, departure date, itinerary and booking class.
In addition, members can use Cash & Miles to buy a ticket for an accompanying passenger if they share a reservation code, select the seat in advance and purchase checked baggage during the payment process.
To increase the benefits for members, tickets bought in Cash & Miles are still eligible for miles accumulation in accordance with the policy of Vietnam Airlines’ Lotusmiles programme. Thus, each flight is always a new investment for passengers to accumulate miles to be redeemed later.
The Cash & Miles payment method has been implemented by many major airlines in the world such as Emirates (UAE), Lufthansa (Germany), Delta Air Lines (US), Thai Airways (Thailand), EVA Air (Taiwan) etc. The implementation of this unique payment method allows Vietnam Airlines’ passengers to buy tickets at attractive prices to enjoy Vietnam Airlines’ four-star services.
