Avplan Trip Support, the flight-planning company owned by Avfuel
Corporation, has announced Jeffrey Reid, president of Houston-based Wing Aviation as the winner of a drawing for 1 million AVTRIP points “ the equivalent of a $10,000 U.S. Savings Bond - for using Avplan to plan an international trip.
Reid, an industry veteran with an impressive list of accomplishments, and Chairman of Wing Aviation, John Wing donated the AVTRIP award to Operation Grateful Nation, a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission it to build hope and sustainable futures for severely disabled veterans returning from Iraq
and Afghanistan through career opportunities, education and assistance in life planning.
My hope is that our donation will encourage others to help these kids who have done so much for our country, Wing said.
I’m grateful to receive this generous award from Avplan, said Reid, and thankful for the opportunity to use the award to assist our nation’s veterans.
This is particularly fitting as our country celebrates Veterans Day on Friday, November 11.
The million-point-promotion served as the kick-off to the announcement that Avfuel would begin awarding AVTRIP rewards points for flight planning
services through Avplan. Integrating AVTRIP with Avplan provides AVTRIP members with even more valuable point-earning options, said Avfuel Director of Marketing Marci Ammerman.
Indeed, a wealth of point-earning opportunities are available through Avplan regardless of whether the AVTRIP member is a first-time or long-time customer. Those new to Avplan can earn points for planning their first international trip through the company. Loyal customers can earn points through
referring new business. AVTRIP points are awarded to pilots, co-pilots and dispatchers on all international trips planned through Avplan based on destination.
AVTRIP has an established reputation as a preferred loyalty rewards program because of the rapid pace at which points can be accumulated, the value of the rewards offered and automated reward administration. Points are available on fuel purchases at over 550 Avfuel-branded FBOs worldwide “ many
of which run bonus point promotions throughout the year. In addition, points are available through newsletters, social media and website promotions.
