Free Business Class ticket on Economy Roundtrip on Jet Airways

Earlier this week, I wrote about a new promotion from Jet Airways, which is offering a mind-boggling 15000 bonus JPmiles when you book your international ticket with Jet Airways. That is an equivalent for a free business class ticket worth INR 35000 or more!

To summarise, you book an international round trip in any class of service on Jet Airways (to Singapore, Hong Kong, Europe or North America), and travel between January 15 and April 15, 2018.

After April 15, 2018, you get 15000 bonus JPMiles in your account.  It is a great promotion I think to end the year, given you have a good payback on these tickets.

Let’s say you book a ticket between Mumbai and Amsterdam for travel on the above-mentioned dates. Even if you booked yourself for the cheapest tickets, for a roundtrip you get 15000 JPMiles and 2000 JPMiles for the flight.

Add to this the 250 JPMiles you get per sector for your booking directly on, and you are good to go!

  • Miles for flying between Mumbai and Amsterdam: 2132 JPMiles for the round trip
  • Miles for booking online: 500 JPMiles
  • Tier Bonuses as per your status with Jet Airways
  • Bonus JPMiles: 15000 JPMiles
  • Total: 17632 JPMiles

These are the number of miles per passenger flying who will have a JetPrivilege account. So if you are flying with your spouse and your kids, make it 4 times the miles in 4 different accounts (60000 JPMiles) and you can use the family pool to get them all in one account.

These are apart from the JPMiles you will get for booking using a Jet Airways credit card. Check our list of Beginners and Advanced Cards here.

Where is the Free Business Class ticket then?

It is right under your nose. Look below! This is the Mumbai – Delhi Business Class cabin on an Airbus A330-200 that usually sells for INR 35000.

Here is where you can go in Business Class, from Mumbai:

  • Mumbai – Bangalore/Jodhpur: 13000 JPMiles o.w.
  • Mumbai – Delhi/Lucknow/Varanasi: 17000 JPMiles o.w.
  • Mumbai – Hyderabad/Goa/Udaipur: 10000 JPMiles o.w.
  • Mumbai – Jaipur: 14000 JPMiles o.w.

Or heck, if you are willing to go in Economy, you can go much further:

  • Mumbai – Delhi: 17000 JPMiles is a roundtrip
  • Mumbai – Dubai: 15000 JPMiles oneway
  • Mumbai – Goa: 10000 JPMiles roundtrip

There are so many more places to go, and the JPMiles Calculator is a good place to start checking the potential of your miles.


If you have international travel for work or play coming up in January to April 2018, make sure you use this promotion and book your travel on right now!

  1. Ajay, could you please clarify this doubt.

    On a typical Jet Airways 737-800 aircraft with 3 business class rows (12 seats), what will be the approximate number of business class seats available for;

    1. Award booking using JP miles
    2. Upgrade using JP Miles
    3. Upgrade using voucher
    4. paid booking under various fare classes


  2. I am at such a loss, booked myself, wife & son roundtrip to Hong Kong on 14th December for travel on 9th Jan-14th Jan 2018…….and all these promotion dates for JetAirways are ironic for me 🙁 . And yes I have a JP Miles account on a HDFC Co branded card.

  3. @Ajay: Is this valid for LHR-BOM return or only for outbound via India (the terms seem to be a little confusing as the wording seems to indicate from India to USA but from/to india to the rest of their destinations. Could you review this and clarify? Thanks
