More than 73 million Caribbean Miles were redeemed on Caribbean Airlines during the program’s first quarter of existence.  The amount of miles used by Caribbean Airlines frequent flyers have been converted to over 3096 reward tickets or upgrades.

In order to offer more opportunities for its valued Caribbean Miles members, Caribbean Airlines is offering a 20% discount on the most popular routes on its network.  Caribbean Airlines also promises to make more seats available to frequent flyers on these routes.

“The numbers of miles redeemed during our first quarter is a clear indication of the success of Caribbean Miles.  The way we have re-organized the reward rate with the possibility of redeeming miles on a one way basis is unique in the industry and provides flexibility and value to our frequent flyer members” says Francois Pariseau, Director Marketing at Caribbean Airlines.

Caribbean Miles is Caribbean Airlines’ frequent flyer program, designed specifically for persons traveling to, from and within the Caribbean. The new program was launched January 1st and has honored commitments made by Bwee Miles as well as accepted the transfer of all Bwee miles to its account in order to offer past members the ability to reap the benefits of reward travel on the new airline.
