American Express today announced a partnership with Kingfisher Airlines to launch the first of its kind credit card - the new American Express Kingfisher First Credit Card. Launched in association with Airtel, the card gives customers the opportunity to convert Airtel calls into free Kingfisher flights.
The American Express Kingfisher First Credit Card members will be able to earn free flights up to four times faster than any other leading card in the industry, the company said. According to the company, India is experiencing a strong growth in affluence, spend on domestic air travel is increasing, and frequent flyers are looking for a premium experience combined with great value. The card has been launched recognizing these emerging lifestyle and travel aspirations of consumers.
Expected to set a trend in the airline co-brand credit card category, the new American Express Kingfisher First Credit Card allows card members to get two or more round trip flights with Kingfisher Airlines every year, simply through their everyday spend on the card.
