Flynas Inaugurates the New Nasmiles Lounge
Flynas, as the leading carrier in Saudi Arabia, has prolonged its partnership with booking agencies. The greatest challenge when booking accommodations through a third-party online marketplace is the incapability to earn loyalty reward points.
But Nasmiles members now have an option to book a hotel and earn the SMILE Points. In order to earn SMILE Points, members of Nasmiles are expected to book their hotel stays through co-branded platforms.
Before you complete the booking process, members of Nasmiles are promoted to enter a membership ID so as to earn more points.
