Jet Airways and Lufthansa German Airlines have entered into a reciprocal frequent flyer agreement. Under this agreement, frequent flyer members of both Jet Airways and Lufthansa will benefit by earning and redeeming frequent flyer miles, while flying across the network of the two airlines. Members of the Jet Privilege programme can now have the convenience of Lufthansa's global connectivity and earn JPMiles when they travel on any of Lufthansa's 42 weekly flights to Frankfurt/Munich from Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The benefits of this partnership extend to Lufthansa's entire network of 13,200 weekly flights across 188 destinations spanning 78 countries.

Similarly, members of Lufthansa's frequent flyer programme, Miles & More, can also accrue and redeem their miles on all flights operated by Jet Airways, , according to Mr Werner Heesen, General Manager (India), Lufthansa German Airlines. He said Miles & More was the leading frequent flyer programme in Europe with 11 million members. "India is a strategic market for Lufthansa and we see tremendous growth coming from this region," he pointed out. Miles & More is the frequent flyer programme of Lufthansa, Adria Airways, Air Dolomiti, Air One, Austrian Airlines, Croatia Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, Luxair and SWISS.

Mr Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways, said, "Growth trends being witnessed in frequent flyer programmes, both in India and abroad, and the resulting increase in the consumer demand are guiding our frequent flyer strategy."
