AIA has announced that clients can now earn one Airpoints Dollar for every $100 of premium they pay on an AIA policy for eligible AIA products, effective 1 May.
This follows the announcement from the insurer in February that it had become a category-exclusive partner of Air New Zealand’s Airpoints programme (see: AIA Launches Airpoints Bonus Campaign).
But as a special offer to launch the partnership, AIA is offering clients who buy an eligible AIA product between May 1st, 2018 and October 31st 2018, the opportunity to earn three Airpoints Dollars for every $100 dollars of premium paid during that period in relation to the eligible AIA products.
AIA Head of Product and Marketing and Acting Head of Distribution, David Savidan, says those eligible will be able to redeem their Airpoints Dollars towards holidays with Air New Zealand or its Star Alliance partner airlines, dining out or purchasing products via the Airpoints Store.
“And of course as well as enjoying the immediate benefits of our Airpoints partnership, our clients will be able to enjoy the ongoing benefit of the peace of mind that comes from being insured with a member of the AIA Group, the second-largest insurer of its type in the world,” Savidan added.
He says the partnership with Airpoints is consistent with the company’s overall approach to providing insurance cover.
“During the almost four decades that AIA has operated in New Zealand, AIA has earned a reputation for bringing to market innovative insurance products that meet the real-life needs of New Zealanders.
“AIA is continuing in that vein by being the first company of its type to give its clients access to the benefits of New Zealand’s best loyalty programme, via their insurance,” Savidan said.
Air New Zealand’s Airpoints programme has more than 2.8 million members and Air New Zealand General Manager Loyalty, Mark Street, says, “The addition of AIA to the programme is good news for members, offering them yet another convenient way to earn Airpoints Dollars and get flying faster.”
