airBaltic Introduces New Loyalty Points Payment Option
airBaltic has introduced a new payment option, where airBaltic Club members can use points for ticket purchases on the carrier’s website. Customers can also combine loyalty points with other payments options when booking tickets.
On Thursday (October 13, 2022), airBaltic announced the introduction of a new payment option, where airBaltic Club members can use points to book flights on airBaltic.com. Customers can either fully pay for tickets with points, or combine points with other payment methods when booking. The airBaltic Club allows members to earn loyalty points and collect stamps while traveling with airBaltic and other partners, which can then be redeemed for various rewards. The program has been designed to benefit frequent travelers, as well as customers who travel occasionally. For those traveling occasionally, points can be redeemed for useful benefits such as free heavy baggage and advanced seat reservations, for example.
In Thursday’s announcment, airBaltic’s Head of Loyalty and Partnerships, Māris Rudens, said,
“We are always looking for new ways to make the airBaltic Club loyalty program more and more attractive to its members. This payment option will be available for those, who have at least 10 airBaltic Club points in their loyalty account. It is significantly less than the amount, required for any other reward to date. Therefore, it will be beneficial not only for those members, who manage to collect large amounts of loyalty points, but also for the ones, who have just joined the airBaltic Club.”
