Norwegian boosts its Reward scheme for frequent flyers
- Enhanced scheme gives passengers even more chance to earn CashPoints to put towards flights, hotels and car rentals
Norwegian, recently voted ‘Europe’s best low cost airline’ and the ‘World’s best low cost long-haul airline’, has announced that members of its popular ‘Norwegian Reward’ loyalty programme can now collect CashPoints up to 30 days after departure.
The enhanced scheme will give Reward members even more time to collect CashPoints which can then be used as full or partial payment for any new flights, seat reservations or check-in luggage.
Norwegian already offers one of the most generous reward schemes in the skies with passengers able to earn CashPoints on all Norwegian flights plus a wide selection of hotels and car rentals. Passengers can collect CashPoints from the very first trip and claim them against any forthcoming long-haul or short-haul flight, even during peak travel periods. Members can also use CashPoints to get attractive rates on hotels and rental cars from a wide range of suppliers.
Brede Huser, VP Norwegian Reward at Norwegian, said: “We are seeing increasing numbers of Norwegian Reward members gain the benefits of flying with us by taking advantage of their CashPoints. We now have over three million members and the level of loyalty shown by our customers strongly indicates that we are delivering excellent travel experiences. As such, the enhanced Norwegian Reward programme will help reduce costs and deliver great value for Reward members.
“With multiple daily flights from London to key European and US destinations including our new, upcoming services to San Juan and Boston, we expect frequent business and leisure customers to make their CashPoints work for them.”
Norwegian Reward members who fly 12 round trips between 1 July and 31 December 2015 can now receive one long-haul flight entirely for free.
Customers can store CashPoints for up to three years and can keep track of their value online at www.norwegianreward.com by accessing their profile. The value of CashPoints is also displayed in the passenger’s relevant currency for simplicity to redeem against travel.
