DFW travelers to earn airline miles for on-airport purchases
Travelers participating in the program will be eligible to earn frequent flyer miles or points for every qualifying purchase made at DFW Airport such as parking, retail and concessions. Airlines participating in the program include DFW's major hub carrier American Airlines, along with Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier, United and US Airways.
The DFW Customer Rewards Program will give travelers the ability to earn airline miles every time they make a qualifying purchase at the airport, whether on parking, restaurants and retail outlets, services, and airport hotels such as the Grand Hyatt or even Paradise 4 Paws, the pet hotel at DFW Airport. DFW is partnering with Thanks Again, LLC to offer the program.
"DFW will be the only airport in the country that offers its customers miles for the total experience: on-Airport parking, shopping and dining, and hotel stays at all of our properties," said Ken Buchanan, DFW's executive vice president for revenue management. "We are always looking for ways to improve the passenger experience at DFW Airport and this is one way we can reward our customers for their loyal business."
Travelers can register at the Thanks Again website with a debit or credit card. Thanks Again already has a presence in more than 170 U.S. and Canadian airports, with 14 airport-wide programs.
Some of the airports already involved include Miami International, Houston Intercontinental, New York LaGuardia Airport, JFK International, Newark Liberty International, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Portland International, the Port of Seattle and Tulsa International Airport.
