HawaiianMiles Expands Partnership With Points
To Enhance Travel Program

Hawaiian Leverages Points Travel Services for Members to Earn Miles When Booking Hotels

TORONTO, December 19, 2018 – Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today further expanded its partnership with Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaii’s destination carrier, to enable HawaiianMiles members to earn frequent flyer miles when booking hotels.

Through a single integration with Points’ Loyalty Commerce Platform, which powers Points Travel services, HawaiianMiles members may now earn up to 10,000 frequent flyer miles per night when booking on over 300,000 hotels across the globe. This significant program enhancement follows a successful travel program launch in 2016 that enabled HawaiianMiles members to redeem their frequent flyer miles to pay for all or part of hotel bookings, via Points Travel services, the industry leading white label hotel platform.

“We have been proud partners of HawaiianMiles for over a decade now, and are thrilled to be able to further expand our relationship and collaborate more closely,” said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. “We are committed to ensuring HawaiianMiles’ loyalty program can continue to better engage their members, generate incremental revenue and drive new member acquisition through our Points Travel services.”

Points Travel can be quickly integrated into any loyalty program's web and mobile properties to create a highly-converting, travel eCommerce offering that is program-branded and leverages the capabilities of the Points Loyalty Commerce Platform. The user experience is simple and intuitive, taking members from consideration to purchase in just a few clicks, ultimately rewarding members with thousands of points or miles as well as being able to redeem points for bookings at thousands of hotels and car rental companies around the world.
