Early last week, Jet Airways had announced a sort of a sale, where you get domestic (India) award ticket redemptions at 50% off the usually required number of miles, if you redeem your miles via the website. This sale is valid for bookings made till September 30, 2014 and you need to book tickets by July 21, 2014. You can book business class as well as economy seats for redemptions.

This is just a quick reminder, that if you are interested in booking up your redemption tickets, it may be a good idea to plan it out now and book over the weekend. You can find all the details in my original post here. After all, a mile saved is a mile earned.

Jet Airways is upping the redemption game which they started a few years back, offering a 50% off on mileage redemption tickets across India for this quarter as of today.

For the past two years, Jet Airways offered a 20% off on mileage redemptions, if booked online, something they discontinued in April 2014. Now, for travel between July 7, 2014 to September 30, 2014, they are offering a 50% off for redemptions across their domestic sectors in economy and Premiere class if you choose to make the redemption online.

The promotion is valid for JP redemption bookings made between July 07, 2014 to July 21, 2014, only if you issue your tickets using the online redemption engine on www.jetairways.com. So, if you issued your tickets before this date, you don’t get the discount, but if you choose to cancel and rebook the tickets, you may get the discount (one can never be 100% sure an award ticket cancelled goes back into award inventory on cancellation). If you choose to cancel and rebook, remember, it would cost you 500 JP miles for the cancellation per passenger.

The inventory looks pretty good with this sale, and I am now seeing BOM-DEL flights for 5250 miles plus taxes/surcharge and BOM-GOI flights at only 2500 miles plus taxes, which is a steal!

The Air Asia impact is showing, and all the airlines are reacting in their own possible manner. After Air Asia put out INR 500 tickets to Chennai and Goa from Bangalore, SpiceJet and Indigo lowered prices on the same routes, and Jet Airways is now offering double base miles on these routes if you fly between June 16 and July 15, 2014.

jetdoublemiles

Here are the salient Terms & Conditions you should know about:

  • This offer is valid for travel taken on direct Jet Airways / JetKonnect flights on the above mentioned routes.

  • Applicable for travel in Economy.

  • Offer is valid for travel taken between June 16, 2014 and July 15, 2014 (both days inclusive).

  • Double of the Base JPMiles will be credited for travel taken on the above mentioned sector during the offer period.

  • Double Base JPMiles will be credited into the JetPrivilege account of the member undertaking the travel. Relevant JPMiles will be credited post travel taken and not on booking.

I know of at least one person who is based in Goa and could milk this promotion, but if you are a frequent traveller to any of these cities from Bangalore, you could sure join in the fun, though of course, if you are the lucky few who have INR 500 Air Asia tickets, then the extra few miles are not worth it.
