BANGOR - Flying in and out of Bangor International Airport is not just convenient, it's now also rewarding. The airport recently teamed up with Thanks Again, a loyalty program that rewards frequent flyers in the form of points and mileage towards their next purchase.

"We're excited passengers will not only be able to earn points and miles when they shop and fly here in the airport but outside the airport as well," explained Jay Ellis, senior vice president of Thanks Again.

Thanks Again currently offers services at over 170 airports and participating merchants. Miguel's restaurant in Bangor and the Hampden Country Club are just two of the local businesses enrolled in the program. Card users who visit these businesses can earn one to three miles or one to three points per dollar spent. Meanwhile, those who use, park or shop at BIA can earn up to five miles per dollar spent at the Bangor airport.

"It's very simple, efficient, there's no cost to enroll and it's a way to give back to our customers thanking them for their business," said Tony Caruso, BIA director.

The program is also a cost-free way for consumers to purchase that next airline ticket or product they've been daydreaming about.

"On a biweekly basis, based on the program you select, we transfer miles from your Thanks Again account to the loyalty program you selected," said Ellis.

Those interested can use any debit or credit card to enroll by:

1) visiting the airport and clicking on the QR code;

2) logging on to; or

3) texting flybgr to 82257 using any mobile device.
