Southwest Airlines’ frequent flyer program, Rapid Rewards, has been named one of the top airline rewards programs in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 rankings of the Best Airline Rewards Programs. This is Southwest’s second consecutive award from U.S. News & World Report.
“It’s exciting that U.S. News & World Report has recognized our frequent flier program for its unique combination of Customer Service, reward availability, and value offered by Rapid Rewards,” said Jonathan Clarkson, Southwest Airlines’ Director of Rapid Rewards. “Our nearly 45,000 Southwest Airlines Employees–as well as the millions of loyal Customers who fly us every year–are the reasons we’ve been honored with this award.”
The Airline Rewards Programs rankings identify the top frequent flier programs using a methodology that weighs six components: airline quality ratings, flight volume, geographic coverage, free flight options, added benefits, and ease of earning a free round-trip flight. In total, 10 of the most prominent airline rewards programs were evaluated for the 2014 rankings.
“The U.S. News Best Airline Rewards Programs offer benefits that travelers value, such as easy-to-earn free flights and complimentary upgrades,” stated Liz Weiss, Travel Editor, U.S. News & World Report.
