Rwandair, VISA to reward travelers

Frequent fliers with Rwanda´s national carrier will begin receiving rewards for traveling with Rwandair.

The airline has introduced ´Dream-Miles´; a loyalty program that rewards passengers with miles accumulated using Rwandair as their carrier of choice.

RwandAir, the first to introduce the program in the region, will integrate Dream Miles with a reloadable Visa Prepaid Card.

The new card will be called the RwandAir Dream Miles Global Travel Walletâ„¢ card, allowing members to accumulate miles whenever they shop at Visa retailers anywhere in the world.

Beneficiaries have been categorized into junior, emerald, silver, gold and diamond.

The airline, regarded as the fastest growing on the continent, has begun expanding its fleet, with the recent purchase of two passenger aircraft from Airbus A330-200 and A330-300. Rwanda now flies to an increasing number of destinations across Africa and Middle East. Plans are underway for more Asian and European destinations as well.
