Points on the Road, Miles on the Skies with Pilipinas Shell x Philippine Airlines

My ultimate goal in life is to travel and explore as many places as possible in this lifetime. Seeing old and new places, meeting new people, trying different cuisines, and getting immersed in local culture gives me a natural high that nothing else ever can. Seeing the majestic Angkor Wat for the first time, living in Boracay for a short while and seeing its beautiful sunset everyday, eating fresh sushi at Tsukiji market in Japan, reliving my favorite K-drama scenes in Korea, drinking hot tea at Jiufen, Taiwan, and many more make my heart skip a beat and my soul feeling full. Something as simple as road trips are included too! A relaxing ride to Tagaytay for lunch and coffee, listening to my favorite songs while cruising on the freeway (aka NLEX or SLEX haha), and then making a stopover along the way to stretch and eat! My favorite would always be our SHELL stopovers because of the wide variety of items at Shell Select and the food selections. 

Speaking of which, did you know that being on the road can also take you to the skies? You can earn Shell Go+ points every time you gas-up, purchase lubricants, or buy any products in Shell Select and convert into Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles!

Pilipinas Shell and Philippine Airlines (PAL) recently launched a partnership that allows you to convert your Shell Go+ points on the road to PAL Mabuhay Miles to get you closer to your next dream destination. And as border restrictions are now easing and more places are opening up, this amazing partnership gives Filipinos an alternative method to book a flight and travel to more places.

The Shell Go+ and Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles partnership was inked at Shell C5 Southlink, which has a view of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

L-R: Kristine Cerezo, Pilipinas Shell Payment and Loyalty Manager; Arvin Obmerga, Pilipinas Shell Mobility Marketing Manager; Randy Del Valle, Pilipinas Shell Vice President and General Manager for Mobility; Lorelie Quiambao-Osial, Pilipinas Shell President and CEO; Captain Stanley Ng, Philippine Airlines President and COO; Ria Domingo, Philippine Airlines Vice President for Marketing; and Jonathan Chua, Philippine Airlines Assistant Vice President for Loyalty.

“This is just the start of many things. I know that people are really starting to move.” PSPC Vice President and General Manager for Mobility Randy Del Valle said. “This partnership is a testament to our commitment to bring greater mobility and further accessibility by enabling Filipinos to travel beyond roads and even into the sky.”

Through this partnership, Shell Go+ members can now convert their points to fuel their next flight. They can convert their points to earn 1 Mabuhay Mile for every 3 Shell Go+ points, with a minimum redemption of 30 points.

Reflecting a growing global trend, Philippine Airlines believes that partnerships like this will boost the economy, especially towards the tourism industry, and at the same time, provide Filipinos more opportunities to travel.

“With the Philippines and the rest of the world opening its doors for travel, the opportunity to help people reach their desired destinations also opens," said Stanley Ng, Philippine Airlines President and COO. “We are optimistic that the resurgence in air travel will continue and with support from partners like Pilipinas Shell, we can help bring more Filipinos to their destinations of choice," he added.

As Lorelie Quiambao-Osial, President and CEO of Pilipinas Shell, put it: “We are in the dawn of a new era and moving on to the next normal. I am excited for this partnership. We are evolving customer experiences and needs. We continue to empower the Filipino people to live their lives. In that sense, we look at innovations in everything we do. Enabled by technology, we are offering more and more to address the differentiating customer expectations and to delight our customers in every way.”

You can now start collecting Shell Go+ points and convert them to Mabuhay Miles through the Shell Go+ application. To know more about the program, head on over to: https://www.philippineairlines.com/earn-miles/categories-partner/drive/shell-go-plus
