Ever since JetPrivilege Private Limited launched the ability to earn and burn miles via bookings on other airline carriers, one airline was prominently missing from the airlines available on the platform, Vistara. I am not sure if it was InterMiles blocking out Vistara options, hoping for the resurrection of Jet Airways, or was it Vistara asking to be excluded from the platform. But the good news is, you can now book tickets for travel on Vistara using your InterMiles.
I’ve been monitoring this for over a week before writing this up, and I’ve been now able to find many a Vistara tickets up for redemption as well as cash booking via the InterMiles website. For instance, here is me trying to book a revenue Vistara ticket on InterMiles.com
And here is the opportunity to redeem InterMiles for a Vistara flight (you will still earn Club Vistara miles).
This is great news for those who would like to earn/burn InterMiles on Vistara flights since there is a double-dipping opportunity. You will get Vistara points for each flight you make, regardless of the fact that you are earning or redeeming InterMiles.
Update: Seems the bookings have been shut again after this article was published.
