airBaltic and PINS

 

PINS is the airBaltic frequent flyer loyalty program with a loyalty currency that is also called “PINS”. The more you fly, the greater the privileges, which include a free baggage allowance, no queues, reserved seats and much more to make travelling more pleasant.

You can collect PINS by flying with airBaltic, shopping in airports, staying in hotels, renting cars, dinning in restaurants, shopping at well-known international online shops, and even by using the airBaltic Payment Card or the PINS MasterCard.

The PINS program has various card designs from which you can choose, but if you are a frequent flyer, then the most suitable one for you will be the green airBaltic PINS card.

Young Pilot

Children are welcome to start collecting PINS as soon as they reach 2 years of age and are enrolled in the program by their parents or legal guardians. The youngest members are issued with a special Young Pilot card which allows children to collect PINS and reach Executive and VIP membership levels in the same way as adults.

Young Pilot cards do not have an expiry date. They can be exchanged for a standard PINS card on request when a child reaches 12 years of age.

Young Pilots can exchange their PINS for the same rewards that are available to any PINS member. On behalf of the child, PINS can also be redeemed by a Young Pilot’s parents or guardians.

From time to time, Young Pilots will be provided with special exclusive PINS offers.
