Air Astana has unveiled a new ‘Diamond’ status for its frequent flyer programme, Nomad Club.
The new top tier will reward the Kazakh national carrier’s most loyal passengers – those who have maintained Gold status for the past four years. This requires members to have earned 100,000 points or taken 125 flights each year.
“The Nomad Club Diamond card provides eligible members with exceptional benefits to recognise their dedication and loyalty to Air Astana over many years. This covers both the increased tangible benefits, as well as added recognition throughout their entire Air Astana journey,” commented Ibrahim Canliel, Air Astana’s senior vice president of marketing & sales.
Diamond card holders will receive a series of benefits, including a guaranteed economy class seat on any Air Astana flight at any time (when booking 72 hours prior to departure), the right to gift Silver or Gold status and points to friends and relatives, free upgrades to business class twice a year, double reward points and unlimited purchase of bonus points, check-in at business class counters regardless of booking class, 25kg of free additional baggage, and lounge access for the member and a guest.
Once awarded, Diamond card membership is valid for two years.
