Timetric’s “Insight Report: Best Practice in Frequent Flyer Credit Cards” analyzes emerging trends and industry best practices in offering credit cards targeted at frequent flyers.

Banks are increasingly using frequent flyer credit cards as a tool for maintaining relationships with top-end customers. Financial institutions are putting forward premium experiences and offers such as lounge access at airports, free or heavily discounted air tickets, preferential treatment at hotels and resorts and insurance cover to increase loyalty and develop deeper banking relationships. Consumers – particularly those in the mass affluent segment – are traveling more than ever, and forecasts for outbound trips indicate that this trend will continue in the key economies over the next five years.

The report also provides a deep dive into six key markets and discusses their market potential for card issuers, compares card offerings by the key competitors and discusses their strategies in detail.

Key Highlights

- Frequent Flyer credit cards are often used to maintain relationships with profitable customers (such as mass affluent customers) by offering exclusive experiences and attractive offers.

- Following the ‘one size fits all’ approach is likely to understate the potential benefits of a frequent flyer program. A limited focus on customer segmentation can lead to targeting customers with the wrong products and services, as well as ineffective marketing strategies.

- Banks and card issuers are partnering with merchants and service providers such as airlines, hotels and resorts, retailers, lifestyle brands, tour operators, insurers and reward programs to make their frequent flyer credit cards more appealing to various customer segments.
