NEW FlyBuys REWARDS PROGRAM PLATFORM ENHANCES FLEXIBILITY

World Fuel Services’ rewards program, FlyBuys™ Rewards, now offers more flexibility and rewards options to pilots, flight crew members, flight departments, and schedulers & dispatchers. Along with thousands of rewards options, the new online platform offers members an online merchandise catalog, gift cards, travel certificates, and the ability to donate the value of rewards points to a charitable organization of their choice.

With this new “Name Your Own Charity” option, members can select a highlighted charitable organization, such as the Corporate Angel Network, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Compassion International and World Care, to make a donation. They can also specify other reputable charitable organizations of their choice and FlyBuys will post a donation in the member’s name. Every 2,000 FlyBuys Rewards points equates to $20.00 in donation funds.

“While the charitable donation of rewards points is not the most utilized rewards option by our members,” said Steve Drzymalla, World Fuel Services’ Senior Vice President of General Aviation, “many flight departments have restrictive company policies regarding rewards programs. In these cases, members can redeem points for World Fuel Services invoice credit or choose our new ‘Name Your Own Charity’ option.”

Other program enhancements include more opportunities to earn rewards in 145 countries, boosted bonus offers and promotions, and a new website with improved user experience, navigation and flexible account management.

Join World Fuel Services in rows 700 and 800 at the 2017 Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference in Fort Worth, Texas from February 7-9, 2017 to earn a donation to your favorite charitable organization. World Fuel Services will be highlighting the new “Name Your Own Charity” function of the FlyBuys Rewards Program with a fun show activity where attendees earn FlyBuys Rewards to redeem at the show for both prizes and a donation to their favorite charity.
