LoyaltyPlus signs Drukair to its cloud-based loyalty solution

Drukair, the national airline of the Kingdom of Bhutan has chosen LoyaltyPlus in a direct relationship for continuation of its Loyalty services through migration to a new Passenger Services Solutions (PSS) provider in 2021.

The agreement builds on the current relationship which has seen the team at Drukair and LoyaltyPlus working closely together for development of the HappinesSMiles loyalty program and integration with other systems to deliver a seamless Loyalty experience for members.

“It is because of the good working relationship and the quality service provided which led to this decision” said Tandi Wangchuk, Drukair CEO. “We look forward to the same LoyaltyPlus support for years to come and with this direct relationship we can continue to add value to our HapinesSMiles program and grow our airline.”

Len Lubbe, LoyaltyPlus CEO said: “We are proud to partner directly with Drukair to provide much more than a cost effective and scalable solution; the key to our on-going success with their team is the close relationship and shared objectives to grow our businesses.”

Work starts immediately on LoyaltyPlus’ fourth PSS integration with cutover expected in the first quarter 2021. Retaining the LoyaltyPlus solution, with changes confined to the back end PSS interfaces, ensures a smooth transition for HapinesSMiles members and Drukair’s most valuable customers.
