Kenya Airways Asante Rewards program was launched earlier in the year as an appreciation of customer loyalty by the airline. It allows customers to get greater value from their flying experience in the form of redeemable points which can be earned from flights operated by Kenya Airways or any of its partners such as Serena.
Through the Asante Rewards Loyalty Program, Kenya Airways customers can redeem their points for benefits such as reward ticket flights, seat upgrades, extra baggage allowance, priority services, seat selections, and many more rewards.
The introduction of Asante Rewards was in response to the need for a loyalty program curated with the African market and dynamics in mind. This was also in line with the airline’s commitment to innovate and develop products and services that ensure an enhanced and delightful customer end-to-end experience.
The Asante Rewards Loyalty Program offers customers four tiers which they can grow into as they accrue their points. These are: Silver, Ruby, Gold, and Platinum each offering unique benefits and privileges to ensure customers have a more rewarding experience when traveling with Kenya Airways.
Members earn points every time they fly with Kenya Airways or its partners. Members earn points on all qualifying fares and products on Kenya Airways. The number of points earned depends on destination, fare type, and class of travel.
Points are reflected in a member’s account within 24 hours after a flight. All customers are awarded with 1000 points automatically on enrolment.
