Etihad Guest members can now earn miles when transporting pets or personal items like furniture or a car via Etihad Cargo. Members earn tier miles as well as award miles with the shipments according to category. Personal effects earn 1,300 Guest miles and 1,000 tier miles, pets earn 3,000 Guest miles and 3,000 tier miles and vehicles earn 38,000 Guest miles and 9,000 tier miles.
Pets must be sent from Chicago or New York (JFK) only and miles for personal cargo are only offered on freighter routes through Washington, D.C. for members resident in the U.S. It takes up to 45 days after the cargo has been transported for the miles to show up in your Etihad Guest account.
