India's largest private carrier, Jet Airways, has entered into a frequent-flyer partnership with All Nippon Airways (ANA), effective 21 May. According to the carrier, members of JetPrivilege, which is also India's largest such programme, will now have additional opportunities to earn and redeem their JPMiles on ANA marketed and operated flights to over 50 destinations in Japan and 27 cities throughout Asia, Europe and the United States.
JetPrivilege members will also earn JPMiles while traveling on the Jet Airways code-share flight between Mumbai and Tokyo Narita, on the ANA operated daily business jet flights. This partnership will also allow ANA's Mileage Club members to earn and redeem their miles on Jet Airways' over 385 daily flights to 43 destinations in India and 17 international destinations.
Commenting on the partnership, Jet Airways' Gaurang Shetty, senior vice president, alliances & interline distribution, said, ''Jet Airways is delighted to further enhance its partnership with ANA, an airline whose commitment to excellence closely mirrors ours. I am certain that the code-share agreement between the two airlines will be popular with passengers, and with the added incentive of this attractive frequent-flyer programme, I am confident that the two airlines will eventually account for a significant percentage of traffic on the India-Japan sector.''
Jet Airways' JetPrivilege is India's largest frequent flyer programme with over 49 partners worldwide in eight partner categories. There are 15 airline partners which include Air France, American Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Dragonair, Gulf Air, JetLite, KLM, Lufthansa, Northwest, Qantas, South African, SWISS, Virgin Atlantic and now ANA.
