Today the Latvian airline airBaltic announces a unique addition to its airBaltic Club loyalty program – an opportunity to acquire the top-tier VIP status by owning 25 Planies, a set of NFT collectibles Planies. Such membership, which comes with a host of special traveling privileges, can be granted for one year or as long as the Planies are being staked on its staking platform.
Māris Rudens, Head of Loyalty and Partnerships of airBaltic: “Planies is the first NFT-based airline loyalty program, and airBaltic is thrilled to offer its members an opportunity to purchase the top-tier elite membership, even if they are only occasional flyers. We have seen a significant interest in our NFTs, and now we are taking the next step by integrating them into various airline processes. airBaltic is committed to providing its customers with a memorable and luxurious travel experience, and this addition to the loyalty program is another innovative way how to achieve that goal.”
The VIP status is linked to the respective tokens and airBaltic Club account. By staking at least 25 Planies, members will automatically receive VIP status, enabling them to enjoy exclusive travel benefits.
airBaltic Club is a loyalty program, where it is possible to earn loyalty points and exchange them to free flights and various other rewards. Members can earn points every time they fly airBaltic or use the services of other travel partners.
Overall, three membership levels exist. If you fly at least 30 one-way flights with airBaltic over the course of one year, you will reach the airBaltic Club Executive level. If you take at least 60 one-way flights within a year, you will earn airBaltic Club VIP status.
