The lowdown on airline loyalty programs

 

All international airlines have their own loyalty schemes. And we aren't just talking about the ones for personal frequent flyers; there are corporate loyalty programs as well that work in a similar way. 

In this insight, we tell you all about the top airline loyalty schemes and the rewards you get for each. 

Plus, we'll go over how your company and your travelers can still earn points while booking through Corporate Traveler. 

Worried you'll lose the benefits if you book through Corporate Traveler instead? That's a myth. 

We can: 

  • Give you the same benefits and discounts that you get from booking with an airline direct. 
  • Manage your corporate loyalty memberships. 
  • Factor in corporate and personal loyalty status when making bookings.

And...

  • Points earned on corporate programs = points for the traveler's personal memberships too. 

How it works - 3 important steps for corporate air loyalty programs.  

  1. Sign up to as many corporate programs as you like - they're all free to register with. It especially makes sense for the airlines you use regularly. More info and links below. 
  2. Name Corporate Traveler as an admin when you sign up so we can manage the program and help you spend points.
  3. Once signed up, send us your membership details so we can add them to relevant bookings. Then you can start earning points!
