StanChart, Emirates credit card launched

12 February, 2008:

Standard Chartered Bank and Emirates Airlines have announced the launch of their co-branded credit card, christened The Standard Chartered-Emirates Card.

According to a news report, the credit card offers travel benefits for frequent travellers in the form of Miles and special features like on-boarding Miles. The card is available in two variants, Platinum and Titanium, it said.

The Standard Chartered - Emirates card would help the card-holder to earn Skywards Miles against every rupee spent on the credit card. These Miles can be redeemed for free flights or upgrades on Emirates and its airline partners as well as for a wide array of products and services with its non-airline partners.

Murali M Natrajan, Regional Head, Consumer Banking - India & Nepal of StanChart Bank said that the Standard Chartered - Emirates card brings to the customer a host of travel-related benefits in this extremely relevant and fast-growing category.“With Emirates as our partner, we are confident that this innovative product will bring unmatched benefits to customer travelling across Emirates’global network. Customers will find immense value in the additional services and benefits offered on the card,”he said.

According to Brian LaBelle, Skywards’ Senior Vice President, “The unique product marks the beginning of a new partnership which will provide excellent advantages and benefits, particularly for the frequent flyer. Skywards aims to deliver personalised services, unparalleled customer care, innovative promotions and a wide-range of member benefits – all of which continue to make Skywards one of the top programmes in the industry.”

Orhan Abbas, Vice President, India and Nepal, Emirates Airlines added, “Emirates is delighted to partner with Standard Chartered Bank and offer this innovative card to its Skywards members. Our Skywards members have reason to cheer with some exciting times ahead as Emirates activates a series of back-to-back partnerships which include our recent tie-up with Kingfisher Airlines and today's association with Standard Chartered Bank.” He said that the new addition to the portfolio will be an excellent opportunity for customers of Standard Chartered who are not Skywards members to experience first-hand the product and service.
