BW Joins Northwest Airlines Worldperks Program

Best Western International is pleased to announce its partnership with the Northwest Airlines WorldPerks® flyer program. WorldPerks members and guests of Best Western will earn 250 Bonus Miles for each qualifying stay at any Best Western hotel in North, Central and South America beginning July 1, 2000.

“Northwest flies to the places that our guests love to stay,” said Sharon Reiling, manager of Airline Programs. “It made sense to become partners to benefit Best Western guests who prefer to fly Northwest Airlines. Essentially, Northwest’s customers are our customers.”

Best Western guests can benefit in two ways. Guests can choose to earn WorldPerks Bonus Miles by presenting their WorldPerks card upon check-in, or, beginning in 2001, Best Western Gold Crown International (GCCI) club members will be able to convert their GCCI points to WorldPerks Bonus Miles. Best Western’s GCCI club offers points to frequent guests for qualifying stays at Best Western hotels. GCCI points are redeemable for a wide variety of awards—from dining to entertainment, travel to retail and much more.

Northwest Airlines is the world’s fourth largest airline offering more than 2,600 daily departures with hubs at Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Memphis, Tokyo and Amsterdam. With its travel partners, Northwest serves more than 750 cities in 120 countries on six continents.

Northwest’s WorldPerks frequent flyer program is the highest rated U.S. based program reviewed by InsideFlyer Magazine, the leading authority on airline free travel programs, and in 1999 was named the most preferred frequent flyer program by the readers of Time in Asia.


Best Western International currently partners with American, Alaskan, America West, Canadian, Delta and TWA airlines to reward customers frequent flyer miles for staying at Best Western hotels.

Best Western International is the world’s largest hotel chain with more than 4,000 hotels in 86 countries and territories. It is a membership association of independently owned and operated hotels that provides marketing, reservations and operational support to its member hotels.
