Airline loyalty programs, or frequent-flyer programs as they often referred to, are designed to reward passengers for continued patronage. Nearly all programs are free to join, and reward passengers with miles or credits to be used toward future travel. High-frequency passengers generally get additional benefits from loyalty programs in the form of elite status — with perks like space available seat upgrades and bonus mileage accrual.
Each airline’s program is different. Learn about each program, and see promotions and other pertinent information about airline loyalty programs.
