Details on the new VIPorter revenue-based program

Porter Air transitioned to a revenue-based program earlier this week. There are now 3 status tiers (also spend based) and higher status earns bonus point on travel.


The redemption rates are all over the place with no pattern I can discern in terms of what makes a flight likely to get a higher CPP on redemption. I even spotted cases where the same route/date/price had different redemption rates for miles.



On the plus side, the new program actually seems to better reward the lower spending passenger more than the higher spending customers. That's a surprise for a revenue-based program launching these days.

More details in the links above (which go to the analysis on my website).

Did you find a rewards chart?

Is that for Points&Tax or for Dollars&Points? If that is for Points&Tax, I could put my whopping 1500 points to use - if only I could find that route. :-)

There is no "chart" per se. But if you search for awards you get prices back. I searched for many and compiled the data into that chart.

That was for Dollars & Points, not Points & Tax. So the 1500 won't get you there.
