|Avis Europe Plc, the leading car rental company in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, has announced the signing of a partnership agreement with All Nippon Airways, the largest domestic Japanese airline, for participation in the airline?s nine million member frequent flyer programme called ANA Mileage Club. The new agreement, which takes effect on April 1, 2002 will further enhance Avis? strong presence in the Asian Market where the company already works with JAL, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Thai Airways, Eva Air and Royal Brunei Airlines. |
ANA Mileage Club Members will earn mileage credits towards free flights and upgrades when they rent a car with Avis worldwide. In addition, Avis will offer special discounts and value added offers to members.
The addition of the second Japanese airline partnership increases the number of airline partners Avis has around the world to over 70. This agreement will reinforce Avis? leadership position within the frequent traveller segment and reflects the commitment to building long term partnerships with leading airlines in major geographic regions.
Dale Morley, Avis Europe?s General Manager for Asia commented on the new agreement, "Airline travel within Asia is once again growing strongly. Since launching the Avis brand in Japan during 1999, with a network of over 220 locations, it naturally became very important that we have partners who share the Avis commitment to quality and customer care. We are delighted therefore to be working together with our second Japanese partner and the largest airline within Japan?.
