BalticMiles Chief Executive Officer Eric Barray: “Our clients have saved up BalticMiles Points for everyday shopping, purchases of fuel, making hotel reservations or for taking airBaltic flights.  Now the Points can be used to help the people of Japan.”

Loyalty programme participants can now transfer their BalticMiles Points to the Swiss Red Cross, indicating that the goal of the donation is “Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami,” thus helping victims of the tragedy in that country.
