Frequent Flyer Program

This airline operates a frequent flyer program called Rapid Rewards to reward its regular passengers. The original Rapid Rewards program offered one credit per one-way flight from an origin to a destination including any stops or connections. 

When 16 credits were accumulated in a 24-month period, one free round-trip ticket is awarded, valid for 12 months. On March 1, 2011, Rapid Rewards changed to a points system based on ticket cost. Members earn and redeem points based on a three-tier fare scale multiplier and the cost of the ticket. Changes also included no blackout dates, seat restrictions or expiring credits. It also adds more options to use points.

It's now easier than ever to collect frequent flyer points easily with Alternative Airlines and enjoy the benefits of your chosen alliance. If you have not yet chosen an Airline Alliance, check out our article to find out which frequent flyer program is best for you
