Lufthansa announced a slew of initiatives under its corporate travel plan for Indian small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The airline is set to provide easier upgrades and faster and more cash back offers among others under its Star Alliance Company Plus (SACP) programme to enable SMEs to reduce the cost of their business travel.
Membership for SACP is free and requires no minimum turnover. Coupled with these benefits, members of frequent flyer programmes of participating airlines will continue to collect miles on their individual programme with each flight. SACP points can be redeemed for free flights and free upgrades across all participating airlines, as well as free excess baggage on Lufthansa-operated flights, it said. These benefits extend across the collective network of six Star Alliance partners - Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian Airlines, bmi, Air Canada and United Airlines - offering a greater choice of flights, smoother connections and harmonised schedules, the statement added.
