Air Europa SUMA Expands Partnership With Points To Enhance Loyalty Program

Air Europa’s loyalty program leverages Points Travel services for members to gain access to over 300,000 hotels

TORONTO, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today announced that it has expanded its partnership with Air Europa SUMA, the loyalty program of Air Europa, to leverage Points Travel services, the industry leading white label hotel platform for access to over 300,000 hotels at the click of a button.

Through a single integration with Points’ Loyalty Commerce Platform, which powers Points Travel services, Air Europa SUMA’s members now have the ability to earn or redeem miles when booking on over 300,000 hotels across the globe. This significant program enhancement follows a successful partnership launch in 2017 with Points, when Air Europa SUMA leveraged Points’ platform to offer its program members the ability to buy miles to redeem for flights with Air Europa or its partner airlines.

“This is a great opportunity for our Loyalty Program to incorporate Points’ hotel booking services to be able to offer more benefits and Miles to our customers,” said Sandra Lenis, Senior VP Product & Customer at Air Europa. “Air Europa SUMA is one of the most generous Frequent Flyer Programs around the world, and there is no doubt that Points Travel services will bring additional successful services to engage our shared customers.”

“As Air Europa SUMA is a relatively new program, we are delighted that they chose Points to partner with to support their impressive growth. Through a single integration into our Loyalty Commerce Platform they have the ability to add multiple products to their program without the hassle of working with multiple organizations,” said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. “This partnership should empower Air Europa SUMA’s members to do more with their miles. We look forward to continuing to support their program growth, leveraging our platform to power new features and offering more flexibility to members for many years to come.”

Points Travel can be quickly integrated into any loyalty program's web and mobile properties to create a highly-converting, travel eCommerce offering that is program-branded and leverages the capabilities of the Points Loyalty Commerce Platform. The user experience is simple and intuitive, taking members from consideration to purchase in just a few clicks, ultimately rewarding members with thousands of points or miles as well as being able to redeem points for bookings at thousands of hotels and car rental companies around the world.
