Freddie Awards 2020 – Vote for Norwegian Reward
The Freddie Awards are the most prestigious awards in the travel loyalty industry. The voting for the Freddies, also known as ‘the Oscars’ of the industry, is now open, and you can vote for your favourite airline and hotel loyalty programmes.
Members vote for their favourites
Today, the Freddies are known to be the most illustrious member-generated awards in both the air travel and hotel loyalty industries. In fact, the winners of these awards hold a significantly high standard against which all others are judged.
The aim of the Freddie Awards is to give a voice to the frequent flyer and to recognise the efforts of an industry that counts more than 300 million members worldwide.
Programme of the Year
On 30 April 2020, the biggest names in the travel loyalty industry will be gathered in anticipation in New Orleans, Louisiana, waiting to hear if their members have chosen them to win one of these renowned prizes.
Last year, for the third year in a row, Norwegian Reward was voted ‘Programme of the Year’ at the Freddies, the top prize in the Europe & Africa category.
In 2018, alongside ‘Programme of the Year’, Reward won the Freddie for ‘Best Promotion’ for our advent calendar. Norwegian’s Christmas Countdown gave members the chance to play games, win CashPoints, and get flight discounts and offers from partners.
Over the years, Reward has also won several other awards, including the Freddie for ‘Best Affinity Credit Card’, together with Bank Norwegian (twice), and ‘Best Up-and-Coming Loyalty Programme.’
Winning these prizes meant a great deal to the team behind Reward, since the award is based entirely on members’ votes.
We’ve been working hard to keep giving our loyal members better flights for less, and we hope to once again have the backing of our members in the run up to the Freddie Awards 2020. This year, we have been nominated in no less than six categories!
About the Freddie Awards
The Freddies were introduced in 1988 by InsideFlyer magazine’s Publisher and Editor Randy Petersen. They’re named in honour of Sir Freddie Laker, founder of Britain’s first all-jet air carrier, Laker Airways Limited, which became the largest individually and privately-owned airline in the world.
Petersen wanted to pay tribute to Laker’s pioneering marketing efforts and competitive spirit, creating the awards to recognise the world’s most outstanding frequent travel programmes.
