The Norwegian Reward frequent flyer programme has reached the five million members milestone.

Over one million new customers have joined since April this year, and the scheme now has over 700,000 members in the UK alone.

In April Norwegian expanded the benefits of the scheme, with new rewards to choose from after each sixth flight, including free fast-track access, free seat reservation and free baggage allowance.

The scheme has also recently added new partnerships with brands including No. 1 Lounges and Bloc Hotel Gatwick.

Earlier this year Business Traveller spoke to spoke to Brede Huser, head of Norwegian Reward and Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer Thomas Ramdahl about the programme.
