Many airlines offer a club membership, which is entitled to redeem all flight miles that have already been flown at the provider into additional privileges or discounts. This includes the airline Etihad, whose frequent flyer program Etihad Guest has numerous members. Through close co-operation with other airlines within the Alliance Etihad Airways partners, such as the Air Serbia, one can not only collect flights of Etihad miles.

A family membership is also possible without problems

If you would like to become a member of Etihad Guest, you can register as a family as well as individually. The advantage of a family membership is that you do not have to (but can) freeze together to collect miles. Each member of the family will be treated equally with Etihad Guest as a simple member. Both types of membership provide three categories of status: silver, gold and platinum. These, however, presuppose certain conditions which must be fulfilled before they are recognized in the respective level. These requirements refer to a minimum number of miles to be collected.
