Setting up an EgyptAir Plus Family account is straightforward and is the first step you need to take to maximize your earnings and obtain Star Alliance elite status rapidly. First, you will need to set up your own EgyptAir Plus account, and then once that is up and running, you can go ahead and set up the family account.
Setting Up Your Own Account
To set up the primary account all you need to do is head over to the EgyptAir Plus website, and sign up online.
Once you have submitted the basic info, you will then proceed to fill out the rest of the form with all your relevant data.
Once you have submitted the online forms, you are set and ready to go. EgyptAir will more than likely contact you and ask for a scan of your primary travel document/passport, but now you are set up, you can start creating a family account.
Who Can You Add to a Family Account?
According to the EgyptAir website, the main account holder is restricted to adding five relatives of the “First Degree.” Who qualifies as a first-degree relative for EgyptAir is as follows:
- The children of the main account holder
- The siblings of the main account holder
- The parents of the main account holder
- The grandparents of the main account holder
- The spouse of the main account holder
You will need to provide supporting documentation to prove the links between yourself and the person you are adding. While you don’t need to send in an original document to EgyptAir, a color scan or photograph of the necessary document will suffice.
To add your spouse, you will need to provide a marriage certificate (it is not clear whether EgyptAir will accept unmarried couples to be on one account). To add your children, you will need to provide their birth certificates along with their passports. To add your parents, you will need to provide your birth certificate and your parents’ passports.
To add your siblings, you will need to provide both their birth certificates as well as yours, along with copies of their passports. Adding your grandparents is a little trickier since you need to prove their link to the main account holder. So you will need their passports, as well as your parents’ birth certificates.
One thing to remember is you can only add the grandparents of the main account holder. So, if a couple is considering a family account, and everyone regularly travels together, it would be best to have the account in the name of the person with the most surviving grandparents.
Setting Up The Account
Once you have put together all the necessary documentation and information, you need to email EgyptAir at Customeraff@egyptair.com and supply them with the necessary details and documents. Within a few days, you will receive a confirmation email with all the members and the own EgyptAir Plus number.
The family members do not have the ability to log onto the EgyptAir site and check their accounts. Their accounts are a total subsidiary of the main account holder. To see who is registered on the family account, all you need to do is head over to the “relation” section, which will show all other registered members.
While registering for a family account can be an inconvenience, it can be nevertheless very rewarding since you can credit the status miles earned by family members to the main account holder, enabling you to hit status much more quickly.
