Have you ever been anxious about a loved one flying in from abroad and you have no idea how to reach them or how they can contact you when they land because they don’t have a local number and you’re not sure if they have mobile data to reach you online?
Well, if they’re flying to the Philippines anytime soon, tell them to fly Philippine Airlines, which gives away free Traveler SIM cards on their international flights to Manila.
This is perfect for my wedding guests flying in from abroad!
The International Business Group of Globe Telecom partnered with Mabuhay Miles to make it easier for balikbayans, OFWs, and travelers to get in touch with their loved ones the moment they land in the Philippines via this free SIM card.
Since December 14, 2016, the Traveler SIM has been distributed to passengers on PAL international flights for free. This allows them to enjoy 4G LTE and have a local number while in the Philippines, as well as unlimited calls to Globe and TM mobiles, 20 all-net SMS, and 15MB mobile data valid for one day. That’s enough for them to let you know that their flight has landed, that they still need to get their luggage that has all your pasalubong, what gate they’ll meet you when they emerge at the arrival area, and perhaps even check-in on Facebook that they have arrived in sunny Manila.
Mabuhay Miles will also give 500 bonus miles when Traveler SIM customers register or update their membership information.
New members need to enroll at mabuhaymiles.com and text their Mabuhay Miles number using the Traveler SIM to 3456. Existing members can update their profile by texting their Mabuhay Miles number, name, and email address to 3456. Passengers can buy prepaid load at the Globe booths at NAIA 2 (PAL terminal), other international airports nationwide, and at over 800,000 Globe retailers around the country.
This is right on time for summer, when Filipinos are sure to welcome friends and loved ones from abroad who would like to enjoy the lovely weather (and upcoming holidays) in the country this time of year.
