Officials at Spokane International Airport announced Thursday it us launching a new customer rewards program for travelers making purchases at the airport.

The rewards program gives travelers frequent flier miles or hotel reward points for making purchases in shops and restaurants at the airport, paying for parking or staying overnight at the two hotels adjacent to the airport.
