JetKid: earning JPMiles for your kids travels

A couple of hidden features of last week’s announcements of JetPrivilege launching MyFamily+ was the surge in pricing award travel for kid tickets to adult levels, and the official change in policy to allow earning JPMiles for being a kid traveller as well.

For the longest time, JetPrivilege, which is Jet Airways’ frequent flyer program, did not allow kids aged between 2 and 11 years to earn miles. So you had to be over 12 years to have a loyalty program account with them. This changed last week with the launch of JetKid.


JetKid: earn mile for 2-11 year old kids

JetKids allows you to enrol kids between the age of 2-11 years into the JetPrivilege program, and they get an individual JetPrivilege account number. However, the parent/guardian gets official access to this account till the time the kid turns 12. With this, kids can now earn JP miles just like their parents and guardians do, according to the terms of the JP program.

Once the kid turns 12, the account will be de-linked from the parent’s/guardian’s account and allowed to use the account on their own.

This clearly counterbalances the redemption requirements for kids to be moved up to those of adult levels, since children are now being treated as adults in earn and burn both!
