The Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) and Republic Parking have partnered with Thanks Again® to launch an airport-wide traveler loyalty and engagement initiative. Thanks Again’s turnkey program enables airport passengers to automatically earn more frequent flyer miles, hotel points, or other highly sought-after rewards when they park, shop or dine at FWA. Once enrolled, travelers can earn these same miles/points at more than 170 U.S. airports and 20,000 neighborhood businesses nationwide.
Specifically, passengers will earn one mile or two hotel points per dollar spent on shopping, dining, and parking transactions. In addition, passengers can earn a one-time quarterly bonus reward of 5,000 additional miles or 10,000 hotel points when they park at the airport five or more times each calendar quarter.
Enrollment in the program is SECURE, EASY and FREE. Passengers simply register any American Express®, MasterCard® or Visa® branded cards at www.in.thanksagain.com/FWA, select a reward program of their choice, and then use those cards for purchases at participating locations. Points/miles automatically accrue. New members also receive 100 bonus miles (or 200 bonus points) when they enroll with a mobile device by texting FLYFWA to 82257.
Passengers who enroll between March 26, 2014 and May 26, 2014, will be entered into the Early Bird Contest for a chance to win 10,000 miles or 20,000 hotel points. The winner will be announced on Friday, May 30, 2014.
“We are excited to offer FWA passengers this benefit when they park, shop and dine at our airport,” said Scott Hinderman, Executive Director of Airports. “It is important that we recognize and reward our passengers and thank them for choosing to fly FWA. What better way to reward our loyal customers than by offering them a unique opportunity to earn MORE of their favorite travel rewards.”
“Thanks Again is proud to partner with Fort Wayne International Airport, signified by the launch of our seamless customer loyalty and engagement solution throughout FWA,” said Jay Ellis, Thanks Again SVP Global Network Development. “This partnership with the Fort Wayne International Airport represents a win for all stakeholders involved – FWA passengers, Fort Wayne local merchants, Fort Wayne International and the community at large.”
