  • Instant discounts equal to distance between departure and arrivals airports 


crazyjets.com joined hands with Sampath Bank PLC to bring in ‘Miles on the Fly’; the first-ever instant rewarding scheme based on air miles travelled for the Sampath Credit Cardholders valid until 31 July 2019. 

crazyjets.com’s Miles on the Fly promises Sampath Cardholders a discount equal to the straight line of distance in miles between the departure and arrival airport; i.e. if a potential customer travels from Colombo to Melbourne on a return ticket, he would fly approximately 5,200 miles between Colombo to Melbourne, which translates to a discount of Rs. 5,200.

crazyjets.com Co-founder and CEO Dr. Harshani Perera elaborating on the unique rewarding platform stated, “In the current travel context, the existing practice is to offer the customers miles that could be redeemed under regulations and restriction that are stipulated by the airlines and travel booking platforms, as they can only be redeemed at a later date than the date of the trip. In contrast, crazyjets.com’s collaboration with Sampath Bank, allows the customers to receive an instant discount which is equivalent to their travel distance of a particular travel.”

“This groundbreaking promotion, is first of its kind and allows the customers to change the way they make use of the air miles they travelled. Ideally, we want to benefit Sampath Credit Cardholders and frequent air travellers from this promotion, where through this concept they are allowed to earn more discounts the more they travel. In addition, Sampath Credit Cardholders would get 12 and 24 months instalment plans at 0% interest, with nil government stamp duty,” elaborated Yashas Sumanasekara, Co-founder and Head of E-commerce partnerships on how Miles on the Fly is exceptionally curated considering consumer needs.

According to available data, most air travellers fall short in exploring miles that they have collected with the existing air miles program, for example one major German airline, has 211 billion unclaimed miles. Few users of air miles will have the time, expertise or commitment to permanently transform their travel options, which is why crazyjet.com’s Miles on the Fly is more beneficial for the travellers, as the calming process is comparatively straightforward. Thereby, crazyjets.com claims to be offering the best airfare prices online, and through Miles on the Fly promotion, they offer additional discounts on top of the already pocket-friendly prices that they offer for the customers. 

crazyjets.com is a tech-start up gearing up towards offering the Sri Lankan customers the true experience of online flight search engine through innovative mediums. Crazy Jets is a subsidiary of Inqbaytor Ltd. 

Australia headed by 29-year-old young CEO and Co-founder Dr. Harshani Perera, expert in Artificial Intelligence and 33-year-old Co-founder Yashas Sumanasekera, serial entrepreneur and cyber security expert. The startup company follows the core concept of an e-commerce platform, which is to reduce on brick and mortar while passing on the benefit to the customer; whereby the customer is not charged a booking fee or a convenience fee for booking online, which contrasts the conventional fee structure of many travel companies in the industry.
