Last November, Vistara took the first steps to sign up a co-branded credit card partner. They announced their partnership with Axis Bank, and committed to bring out a co-branded credit card in 2016. After that, we did not hear much about the proposition, which was quietly in the works. I got a tip-off from a reader last month that the card was going to come in June 2016, but that did not happen.
Now, it seems they are ready for a launch anytime. Vistara posted a video on their website over the weekend, which seems to start making the promises about the new card. It seems apart from privileges with the airline, there will also be the luxury element to it.
Here is what I expect the card to offer:
- An expedited way to earn miles/reward points on the airline (obviously!)
- Some sort of status achievement
- Privileges every time you fly (perhaps limited number of lounge trips at Delhi included?)
- Golf rounds (a given after looking at the video)
What other features do you expect the Vistara co-branded credit card to offer cardmembers?
