Bangkok’s new airport offers Royal Orchid elite-level members the luxury of new lounges and a dedicated check-in area. New aircraft have been added to the Thai Airways fleet making way for more flights and more destinations. And a new co-branded credit card has been introduced for members who reside in Thailand. The Citibank Royal Orchid Plus Platinum Select credit card offers up to 15,000 miles until March 31. For details visit http://www.citibank.co.th . Members recently bid on an online auction for a chance to win one of two exceptional prizes. The miles bid through the auction will benefit World Vision Foundation of Thailand, a humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide in tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
Bucking a recent trend stateside, Thai Royal Orchid Plus has added six months to the validity of miles that were set to expire at the end of 2006. These miles are now valid until June 30.
Among other partner offers, Royal Orchid Plus members can earn up to 10,000 miles with Priority Club Rewards. From Jan. 15 to April 30, for every third qualifying stay at a Priority Club property, you can earn 1,000 miles, up to 10,000 miles.
