Airlines with frequent flier programs are focused on customers and profits. Profitability can come from a variety of revenue streams: better margins, higher attachment rates or more redemption options that incentivize members to earn and burn points.
Rewards and frequent flier programs carry massive monetary value for airlines. A strong travel rewards program increases customer loyalty while generating revenue. But, if your rewards member base isn’t growing or points and miles aren’t being spent, it may be time to look for a new provider.
