Etihad Guest has launched a new promotion that allows you to earn status miles when you transfer points to the loyalty programme of Etihad. Here are the details.

Earn a 40% bonus on Etihad miles when you transfer points

Between April 1 and April 30, 2022, Etihad Guest is offering a 40% bonus on mileage conversion when you transfer from select partner programmes. You must transfer the equivalent of at least 10,000 miles into Etihad Guest, in order to receive the 40% bonus. The bonus miles will post to accounts within 10 business days of April 30, 2022.

While a lot of these are focussed on the UAE itself, the hotel programmes are global transfer partners:

  • ADCB Touchpoints
  • Citibank UAE
  • Emirates Islamic Bank
  • Emirates NBD
  • FAB Rewards
  • AIMIA (Air Miles)
  • Le Club Accor Hotels (ALL)
  • Marriott
  • Shangri La
  • World of Hyatt
  • ADNOC Rewards
  • SHARE points
  • Al hilal Joud

Earn up to 20,000 Etihad Guest elite miles for transferring points

Additionally, when you transfer more than 10,000 miles into Etihad Guest, you will also receive elite miles in Etihad Guest. Etihad Guest members who transfer over 10,000 miles into Etihad Guest in one transaction, will also receive 40% Tier miles on top of their 40% bonus miles. Additionally, the bonus tier miles will only reflect on your first eligible transaction, and not all eligible transactions. This means, if you transfer in 50,000 Etihad Guest miles in one go, you will receive the full quota of 20,000 miles as a bonus in terms of Tier miles.

For what its worth, Etihad Guest elite tiers usually require the following number of tier miles to earn and retain status:

  • Etihad Guest Silver: 25,000 elite miles to earn/ 20,000 elite miles to maintain
  • Etihad Guest Gold: 50,000 elite miles to earn/ 40,000 elite miles to maintain
  • Etihad Guest Platinum: 125,000 elite miles to earn/ 100,000 elite miles to maintain

With this promotion, you get to earn up to 20,000 elite miles, which means you can acquire silver or retain silver easily, and in many cases, if you are closer to a higher status, you can make the jump by getting these extra tier miles in!

So, I wouldn’t bother transferring miles to Etihad if I did not have status. But if I am close to getting Gold or Platinum, I’d make the jump. Or if I foresee a lot of travel on Etihad in the next 11 months, I’d get a headstart with this elite mile conversion now.


Etihad Guest is offering a promotion, where, in April 2022, on transferring points from partners, you can receive a 40% bonus on miles transferred in, and additionally tier miles as well, subject to certain conditions being met.

Does anyone plan to take advantage of this Etihad Guest promotion?
