And the 20% off on JetPrivilege redemptions continues

Jet Airways had brought out a fabulous redemption offer where they were inviting travellers to redeem JPMiles for 20% less on domestic legs. It is actually a very good offer, because this allows you to redeem a full-service 9W flight in economy for the same mileage as a redemption on a low-cost carrier on PremierMiles (i.e., BOM-DEL is 8,400 PM for an LCC, and 8,400 JPMiles for a 9W flight).

The promotion was valid for redemption and travel till December 30, 2012. Now, they are extending it to March 31, 2013. This might be a change for good, or a phase when Jet Airways is trying to encourage redemptions so that they can burn some miles off their balance sheet. I also see increased availability on domestic flights now a days, which means, 9W may be finally getting a bit serious about redemption options for their frequent flyers.


You can check the full details of the 20% off promotion in my earlier post here. Note that the promotion is only valid on domestic flights. International redemption discount was pulled a long while back.

  1. Hi AJ,

    Any thoughts on Jet Airways doing away with Lounge access for their Silver card holders. With reduced frequent flyer benefits, I had stopped booking on Jet for some time now. This may prompt some more people to do that.
