RDU Offers Traveler Rewards Program

Nov 14, 2012

Passengers who travel through Raleigh-Durham Airport will have a chance to earn rewards for their business.

Things will get really busy very soon at RDU Airport.

Michael Landguth: "Friday actually kicks off the busiest travel period of the year for RDU so we want to introduce a new program."

Airport director Michael Landguth says the "Thanks Again" program will reward customers who eat, park and shop at the airport with one bonus mile per dollar spent. "Thanks Again" is a national rewards program that offers frequent flier miles and other rewards. RDU customer service manager Jane Martin says the program works at more than 150 other airports.

Jane Martin: "For additional bonuses or up to five points per dollar for every dollar you spend during a 90-day period."

RDU also plans a "white glove" service to direct passengers through the terminal and help with baggage during the busy holiday rush.
