SuperShuttle announced today a marketing relationship with United Airlines(R) to reward Mileage Plus(R) members with miles if they book a shared ride on SuperShuttle to or from their home, office, or hotel and any one of the 33 airports in more than 50 cities and surrounding communities served by SuperShuttle in the U.S.
SuperShuttle will offer Mileage Plus miles for customers booking airport rides online at www.supershuttle.com/united. SuperShuttle customers will earn 50 miles in each direction for SuperShuttle, or 150 miles each direction for ExecuCar rides booked online at www.ExecuCar.com/united. ExecuCar is a Luxury Sedan service owned and operated by SuperShuttle and is available in 11 cities across the country. Mileage Plus members will enjoy double miles from April 1 through July 14, 2009, for ground transportation to or from the airport booked online.*
This is the fifth airline that SuperShuttle has entered into a frequent flyer marketing relationship.
"SuperShuttle is the only truly national airport shared-ride service in the country and we are pleased to work with United Airlines who serves so many of our customers," said Ken Testani, senior vice-president of marketing and sales for SuperShuttle International. "We believe that offering Mileage Plus miles is not only an additional incentive to book SuperShuttle reservations online, but also a reward for United customers who know that sharing a SuperShuttle ride to and from the airport is an economical way to begin or complete their travels."
SuperShuttle serves 33 airports, carrying more than eight million passengers a year. Airports served by SuperShuttle include some of the largest in the country including Los Angeles, New York, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Washington, D.C. and Miami. Go to www.supershuttle.com for more information.
