CAE customers can now earn FlyBuys Rewards
CAE and World Fuel Services announced today that AVCARD, one of the most widely accepted aviation charge cards, is now accepted as a form of payment at CAE business aviation training centers located in Dallas and New York, USA. AVCARD acceptance opens the door for CAE customers to begin earning FlyBuys Rewards with every purchase of training services in these two centers.
"We are pleased to provide our customers the flexibility and convenience of this additional form of payment for their training," said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "Honoring the AVCARD at our business aviation training centers enhances our customers' experience and is a natural extension of our customer service philosophy."
The AVCARD will initially be accepted by CAE business aviation training centers in the United States with plans to expand to facilities in other countries in the future. CAE provides business aircraft operators in the corporate, military and government segments, advanced training services for pilots and maintenance professionals through a network of training centers. Each facility provides type-rated, operationally-experienced instructors, comfortable training facilities and unparalleled customer service. CAE operates over a global network of eight business aviation training locations, including: Amsterdam, Netherlands; São Paulo, Brazil; Shanghai, China; Dubai, UAE; London, UK; New York, Phoenix, and Dallas, USA, and offers business aviation training on more than 80 different aircraft platforms.
When linked to an active FlyBuys Rewards Program account, all AVCARD purchases earn cardholders points on all dollars spent. This new partnership now allows the thousands of pilots, crewmembers and maintenance technicians who train with CAE in Dallas and New York to begin earning rewards simply by choosing to pay with their AVCARD as their preferred method of payment. As an added bonus, FlyBuys Rewards multiply when purchases are made at a fixed-base operator (FBO) within the World Fuel Services Network, when trip planning services are purchased through BaseOps International, and when purchases are made at an Air Elite diamond service FBO location.

AVCARD is one of the most widely accepted aviation charge cards and is used by more flight departments and charter operators than any other card. AVCARD is not just for fuel. Our cardholders can charge fuel, maintenance, charters, catering, flight training and many other aviation services at FBOs, fuel suppliers and other aviation service/product providers at over 7,500 locations worldwide. www.AVCARD.com
