Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has teamed up with Blacklane to provide transportation to its Golden Circle loyalty members in more than 300 cities.

The partnership offers every Shangri-La Golden Circle member booking a ride through Blacklane one award point for every two US dollars, British pounds or Euros spent. Members are also being offered 10 per cent off their first ride and double points for every booking until 28 February 2019.

Blacklane serves more than 300 cities around the world, including 100 in the Asia Pacific region.

Wee Kee Ng, VP of loyalty and partner marketing at Shangri-La Hotels, said: “This partnership will enhance the overall travel experiences of our members. We are excited to be part of that journey with our guests worldwide.”

Jens Wohltorf, CEO and co-founder of Blacklane, added: “Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts evokes peace of mind, attention to detail and high service. Blacklane stands for the same foundation before, during and after rides. Travellers choose Shangri-La and Blacklane for a familiar top-quality experience around the world.”

The news comes as Blacklane opens a Dubai office, its third worldwide after Berlin and Singapore.

In addition, Emirates has chosen Blacklane as the exclusive provider of its chauffeur-drive services in ten cities across India, Italy and Sweden.

Wohltorf commented: “As the centre of travel in the Middle East and the headquarters of Emirates, Dubai is perfect for Blacklane’s office expansion. Emirates means quality, and we’re proud to provide that on the ground, online and in our customer service for Emirates’ guests.”
