Key airline loyalty programmes and how they work with a TMC

All international airlines have their own loyalty schemes. Not just for individual frequent flyers; there are also corporate loyalty programmes that work in a similar way. This blog details those top airline loyalty programmes and the rewards they offer. 

Plus we'll share how your company and your travellers can still earn points while booking through FCM. 

    Worried you'll lose the benefits if you book through FCM? It's not true. We can: 

    • Give you the same benefits and discounts that you get from booking with an airline direct. 
    • Manage your corporate loyalty memberships. 
    • Factor in corporate and personal loyalty status when making bookings.

    And...

    • Points earned on corporate programmes = points for the traveller's personal memberships too. 

    3 important steps for corporate air loyalty programmes:  

    1. Sign up to as many corporate programmes as you like - they're all free to register with. It especially makes sense for the airlines you use regularly. More info and links below. 
    2. Nominate FCM as an admin when you sign up so we can manage the programme and help you spend points.
    3. Once signed up, send us your membership details so we can add it to relevant bookings. Then you can start earning points!
