Blink Parametric and Sanctifly announce global partnership
Together they will offer a real-time flight delay benefit to customers
Insurtech Blink Parametric is partnering with travel wellness subscription platform Sanctifly.
A technology-driven real-time Flight Delay Benefit is being offered to Sanctifly travellers worldwide.
With immediate effect, Sanctifly’s membership now includes a new service which gives travellers points when they experience a two or more hour-long flight delay. The points can be used against a number of travel benefits such as access to airport lounges, gyms or swimming pools, or even a massage.
The new system works like this:
- Paid customer membership includes up to eight return flights (16 flights in total) per membership year eligible for Flight Delay Benefit (FDB)
- Sanctifly members can pre-register any booked flight at least 24 hours prior to departure via the new Flight Delay Benefit tile within the Sanctifly App
- From that point, the Blink Parametric engine will monitor the flight in real-time and automatically notify the Sanctifly system and traveller when a two-hour flight delay occurs, triggering an automatic award of 100 Sanctifly points direct to the traveller’s Sanctifly account
- The Sanctifly member is free to choose to utilise and redeem those points within the Sanctifly App on any of a wide range of applicable Sanctifly benefits at that point in time or save points for future use.
The Sanctifly app already gave members relaxation and fitness options at airports around the world. These include access to runs, gyms, pools, spas, quiet zones, meditation and yoga spaces, lounges, shower and sleep facilities and healthy places to eat. This partnership extends it further.
Carl Carter, Chief Commercial Officer at Blink Parametric, said: “Once the member offer was defined, the implementation using Blink Parametric App widget technology made it a swift and easy process to fully embed and brand the service as an integral part of the Sanctifly App and user experience.”
Karl Llewellyn, Founder and CEO of Sanctifly, added: “Adding the Blink Parametric Flight Delay Benefit to the mix is a milestone improvement in our existing customer benefit range.
“Anyone who has experienced airport delays knows how arduous and tedious they can be – people’s time is valuable and often limited. Our goal is to alter the perspective of that experience into something positive.”
