As many airlines are changing their corporate loyalty programs, we thought this would be a good opportunity to look at the main key updates released recently to keep you up to date.
Karen, one of Tangerine’s account managers, put together a list just for you:
AA’s Business Extra program has been discontinued
Points must be redeemed by January 31, 2024
Travel agency tickets do not qualify
United PerksPlus will only be exclusively available to corporate customers booking through a travel agency. That’s good news for you since you book your travel through Tangerine Travel.
Effective, February 1, 2024.
To verify your company has a PerksPlus account or if you would like to sign up, please contact your Corporate Account Manager.
