HA teams up with points.com

TORONTO, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Points International Ltd. (TSX Venture Exchange:
PTS) is pleased to announce an agreement with Hawaiian Airlines' HawaiianMiles
Program. Through its Points Exchange(TM) technology solution, Points
International is now facilitating the online exchange of HawaiianMiles.
HawaiianMiles members now have the opportunity to consolidate their other
loyalty currencies into HawaiianMiles or exchange their HawaiianMiles for the
currencies of other loyalty programs in order to reach their reward goals
faster.
Members of Points.com have the added convenience of being able to earn,
redeem, exchange, and manage their loyalty currencies in one place. "We are
delighted that another world class airline has joined our Points Exchange(TM)
said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points International. "The Hawaiian Airlines
partnership is significant in that it illustrates the effectiveness of our
strategic relationships with MilePoint and Sabre, with Hawaiian being a
partner of both companies. We are enthusiastic about continuing to add
partners to the Exchange as well as offering more specialized services for
HawaiianMiles members in the future."
HawaiianMiles has been called the most innovative frequent flyer program
in Hawaii. HawaiianMiles can be earned by shopping at various stores, eating
at restaurants throughout Hawaii, flying with Hawaiian Airlines, as well as
through their partners. Some of their partners include America West and Alaska
Airlines, all of which are partners with Points.com.
"HawaiianMiles is a program that adds real value for the traveler,
offering a multitude of ways to earn and use miles. Through Points.com, that
value is now magnified many times over, as HawaiianMiles members now have
access to all the other Points.com programs," said Rick Peterson, Sr. Director
- E Business and Marketing Programs.
