Alternative Airlines Loyalty Scheme

What is a loyalty scheme?

A loyalty programme or loyalty scheme is a business incentive to encourage repeat customers. Frequent customers may then build up points that they can spend on rewards and upgrades such as free flights, upgraded cabin classes or free lounge access.

What is a Frequent Flyer Programme?

Frequent Flyer Programmes are just like loyalty schemes but specifically for airlines. There are lots of airlines that offer these incentive programs as a way for you to collect points and spend them on rewards and upgrades as mentioned before. The more frequently you fly and the longer the distances, the more miles and points you'll build up to then spend on rewards.

How do I earn frequent flyer miles?

Frequent flyer miles are earnt by regularly flying with one or a few airlines that use the same programme. Each time you fly, points (or miles) will be collected and stored in your account for you to use at a later date. The points can then be transferred into rewards and upgrades for your future travels.

How can I check my frequent flyer points?

With most airlines, frequent flyer points can be checked in the account that you would've set up to join the frequent flyer programme. Points can be seen adding up and they may even display what rewards you are eligible for at that point in time.

Do I have to pay to join a frequent flyer program?

Most, if not all frequent flyer programmes are free to join and do not require any set-up fees. This is great as it's an easy way to benefit from free flights and free upgrades in the future.
