Standard Chartered Bank launches FlySmiLes co-branded credit card


Standard Chartered Bank has launched the FlySmiLes co-branded credit card with SriLankan Airlines, saying it is the first bank to do so. Aimed at its large audience of frequent flyer customers, the Bank and the National Carrier have launched this attractive credit card focused at giving customers a unique new accelerated mode of accumulating ‘Air Miles’ and enjoying its subsequent rewards, the Bank statement said.

“Spend on anything from groceries to clothing, jewellery to dining, furniture to family entertainment, and enjoy a truly rewarding experience by earning 1 air mile for every Rs.100 spent! Additionally, reward flights can be redeemed from just 10,000 Miles upwards. Another unique feature of this card is that the FlySmiLes Miles will not expire as long as the Member is active. Travellers who earn 10,000 Miles during a calendar year are considered Active Members. Air miles can be redeemed on the SriLankan Airlines network for upgrades, pre-assigned seating, reward tickets, and a host of other benefits,” the release said.

The FlySmiLes air Miles expire only after three years if air Miles earned during the calendar year are less than 10,000. This is yet another attractive and unique feature of the programme.
