Qatar Airways and JetBlue Launch Partnership for Mutual Loyalty Programmes
Qatar Airways and JetBlue are launching a reciprocal loyalty partnership, bringing additional perks to members of both their loyalty programmes. Qatar Airways Privilege Club members can now earn Qmiles on flights operated by JetBlue and JetBlue TrueBlue members can earn points on Qatar Airways flights.
Privilege Club members can now fly to more destinations across the United States, the Caribbean and Central America, by connecting beyond Qatar Airways’ US gateways onto JetBlue’s network of 100 cities, while earning Qmiles. This brings the total number of destinations in the Americas to over 300 cities, allowing Privilege Club members to earn Qmiles when they fly with partner airlines.
Privilege Club members can also look forward to using their Qmiles to fly with JetBlue, an option which, will be made available in the coming months. This will provide Privilege Club members with more flexibility to enjoy award flights when flying in the United States, the Caribbean and Central America.
According to Qatar Airways Senior VP – Revenue Management, Strategic Alliances and Loyalty Mark AP Drusch, Qatar Airways is offering its valued Privilege Club members more options to earn Qmiles as they connect to different corners of the world through their loyalty partnership with JetBlue.
We are proud to be expanding our network in the Americas to over 300 destinations through our strengthened partnership with JetBlue, by offering services to more states than any other airline.
JetBlue Head of Marketing and Loyalty Jayne O’Brien said that adding the ability to earn points or Qmiles across both their loyalty programmes gives both JetBlue TrueBlue members as well as Qatar Airways Privilege Club members even more value and versatility when flying on either carrier.
When combined with our robust codesharing partnership, earning points or Qmiles further strengthens the partnership between our two airlines and makes it easier for our loyal customers to get rewarded more often.
Privilege Club members can earn Qmiles when flying with Qatar Airways, oneworld® airlines, and other airline partners, as well as with a number of financial and lifestyle partners. Qmiles can be used towards a range of rewards including award flights, cabin upgrades, extra baggage, a stay at one of more than 350,000 hotels worldwide and more.
Last year, Qatar Airways Privilege Club was one of the first airline loyalty programmes to announce a tier extension offer of up to 12 months to its members and, earlier this year, Privilege Club honoured further protection of tier status until 31 December 2021. Over the past year, Privilege Club continued to invest in redefining the programme, including cutting the number of Qmiles required to book award flights by up to 49 per cent as well as removing booking fees for award flights. It also revised its Qmiles policy so that when a member earns or spends them, their balance is valid for further 36 months.
At Hamad International Airport, Privilege Club members can enjoy the most luxurious lounges in the world. Platinum members can experience the incredible Al Safwa First Class Lounge with two guests when travelling in Business Class, and they are also entitled to enter the lounge when travelling in Economy Class. Gold members can unwind at the Al Mourjan Business Lounge with one guest, and Silver members can access it as individuals. All Privilege Club members travelling on award flights in Business Class can enjoy the exceptional facilities at the Al Mourjan Business Lounge.
