Southwest makes business travel more rewarding with new rapid rewards business program

Southwest Airlines Co. is making business travel more rewarding by launching Rapid Rewards Business, giving businesses the ability to earn Rapid Rewards points as their travelers return to the sky.

By joining Rapid Rewards Business, companies earn Rapid Rewards points that can be applied toward travel on the company’s behalf, while travelers who are Rapid Rewards Members also earn Rapid Rewards points in their personal accounts.

To celebrate the launch of Rapid Rewards Business, Southwest Airlines is offering a special promotion awarding 25,000 Rapid Rewards Business points to qualified businesses that apply before Dec. 31, 2021, and have a traveler book and fly two round trips within 90 days of enrollment*.

Business travelers who link their Rapid Rewards accounts with their company’s travel program can earn their company:

  • Three Rapid Rewards Business points per $1 when booking and flying Business Select fares
  • Two Rapid Rewards Business points per $1 when booking and flying Anytime fares
  • One Rapid Rewards Business point per $1 when booking and flying Wanna Get Away fares

“We’re thrilled to bring our award-winning Rapid Rewards program to businesses who fly frequently, rewarding both road warriors and their companies who rely on Southwest to connect them to the people and places that are important to their business,” said Silke Koehneke, Senior Director of Sales for Southwest Business.

“Just like our Rapid Rewards program, Rapid Rewards Business points don’t expire and there are no blackout dates when earning or redeeming Rapid Rewards Business points.

“Now, businesses who fly Southwest can earn and redeem points for future flights, ultimately making their company travel more valuable.”
