Ai Video: How data is shaping loyalty 2.0?

First Published on 10th October, 2017

Are members of a loyalty program associated with a low-cost carrier also relatively low spenders? How to engage infrequent flyers and make the most of their everyday spending?

Finding answers to such questions and in fact, even overcoming traditional ways of engaging and operating loyalty programs, isn’t an erroneous belief. Hong Kong Express Airways’ reward-U program is one such example. From no member, no 1st party data to 1 million members in 16 months to gearing up for loyalty 2.0, the journey has been quite an eventful one for this loyalty program.

“Starting a loyalty program is always difficult considering that there is no data. But we are 16 months old now, we have been accumulating data, spending patterns etc. We are getting a picture of what people are doing. The association with a low-cost airline doesn’t mean that our members are low spenders. They are high spenders,” says Hong Kong-based CEO Steven Greenway. He spoke to Ai’s Ritesh Gupta about loyalty 2.0.
