Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege and United Airlines’ Mileage Plus forge partnership

Jet Airways, will forge a frequent flyer partnership with United Airlines, one of the largest international carriers based in the United States, effective November 15, 2008.

With this partnership, Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege members may now earn and redeem JPMiles on the entire global network of United Airlines, and, United Airlines’ Mileage Plus members may now earn and redeem their miles on Jet Airways’ services to 64 destinations in India and beyond. More details are available on Jet Airways’ website.

United Airlines operates more than 3,200 flights a day to more than 200 U.S. domestic and international destinations from its hubs in Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

United, along with German carrier Lufthansa, had commenced the Star Alliance. Readers will recall that recently Lufthansa has committed itself to helping Air India become a partner of the Star Alliance. It will be interesting to see how this partnership evolves. Ideally, I would like to see Jet Airways become a full fledged Star Alliance member.
