Most businesses today make it a point to offer a bonus or reward of some kind to show customers that their repeat business is appreciated. However, it is critically important for any loyalty program to bring true value to customers and provide the most desired rewards.
For the better part of a decade, the Air Elite Network of Diamond Service locations and World Fuel Services have been rewarding customers for their loyalty using our FlyBuys™ Rewards Program. This global loyalty program offers points to flight operators at more than 7,600 locations for AVCARD® by World Fuel, World Fuel Contract Fuel & Trip Support purchases. With the global scale of the loyalty program and thousands of locations at which members can earn points, FlyBuys Rewards truly lives up to its tagline: The Most Points. The Most Places. Since its inception, the program has amassed more than 11,000 members which include aircraft owners, pilots, schedulers, dispatchers, and crew. Allowing more than just pilots to participate is one of many ways World Fuel differentiates its loyalty program from others throughout the industry.
We are excited to announce that this already valuable loyalty program is getting even better! After countless industry surveys, flight department personnel interviews, and advice provided by loyalty experts and consultants, we are pleased to announce the launch of our NEW loyalty program: World Fuel Rewards. World Fuel Rewards will continue to provide many of the same benefits and rewards as the FlyBuys program did; however, in addition to having a new name, updates also include program simplification, faster accrual of points, and greater opportunities for members to earn bonus rewards.
Air Elite Network locations have been providing their customers with even more opportunities to earn rewards. These locations award bonus points at the point of sale. Often, participating locations also run limited-time offers surrounding events and holidays to reward their customers further for a specific purchase or simply for their business and loyalty.
In September 2018, an exclusive Air Elite Network loyalty program – the Air Elite Bonus – was implemented. This network loyalty program guarantees World Fuel Rewards (formerly FlyBuys) members one of two bonus offers with a qualifying purchase at any Air Elite Diamond Service Location around the globe. The offer distributed is at the discretion of every individual Air Elite location.
- Air Elite Bonus Offer 1: One World Fuel Rewards (formerly FlyBuys) point per US gallon of fuel purchased (or one point per four liters) on any World Fuel Contract Fuel or AVCARD transaction.
- Air Elite Bonus Offer 2: 1,000 World Fuel Rewards (formerly FlyBuys) points on all AVCARD transactions with a minimum spend of $1,000 USD or local currency equivalent.
The Air Elite Bonus is offered in addition to the standard elevated points earned at Air Elite locations and is another way for World Fuel Services and the Air Elite Network to thank our valued customers for their business.
We are also proud to showcase our redesigned World Fuel family of cards – World Fuel Contract and AVCARD by World Fuel. These cards will be seen in the hands of pilots and operators very soon. Each card still serves the same purpose; World Fuel Contract for great fuel prices and AVCARD by World Fuel for everything else. These newly redesigned World Fuel cards simply provide a more consistent and defined look which can easily be correlated to World Fuel Services. This new look provides ease and confidence to every cardholder, as they will be rewarded by World Fuel and the Air Elite Network Diamond Service locations for all qualifying purchases. We look forward to sharing these new opportunities with our aviation community.

We hope to see you on the ground at one of our 70+ Air Elite Network locations. As always, we appreciate your business and your loyalty. It means the World to us!
