Lufthansa, Points extend agreement to 2009

Points International Ltd has reached agreement with Deutsche Lufthansa AG (Lufthansa) to extend their established partnership for a further three years. “Lufthansa’s Miles and More program is one of the world’s largest and most advanced frequent flyer programs,” said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points International. “We’re delighted to be playing a continuing role in its success.”

Lufthansa is one of the two largest revenue earners in the entire airline business. Its partnership with Points International began in March, 2002, when Points International first began to provide the Lufthansa frequent flyer program, Miles and More, with an online solution allowing its members to purchase miles online for their own use or as a gift.

The new agreement, involving thousands of online customer transactions every month, extends the relationship through to March, 2009.

The two partners have also recently launched an online program enabling Lufthansa to sign up other companies wishing to offer the airline’s miles as rewards.
