Capital One Improves Its Miles Program

You can now transfer Capital One Miles to Air Canada (Aeroplan), Air France KLM (Flying Blue), British Airways (Avios), Emirates Airlines (Emirates Skywards), Singapore Airlines (KrisFlyer) and Turkish Airlines (Miles&Smiles) at a 1:1 ration instead of 2:1.5.
The only programs left that do not transfer 1:1 are Accor Live Limitless (2:1) EVA Airways (2:1.5) and JetBlue TrueBlue (2:1.5) which will be discontinued later this month.

Capital One has been improving its miles program and catering more to frequent flyers in recent years. It moved from a fixed value model for its miles, to transfer partners. And it has continuously added more partners and improving the transfer ratio. Now most partners are at 1:1. That makes the Capital One Venture and Capital One Spark Miles cards more valuable as well as they both earn 2X on all purchases.
Capital One is also launching a new lounge network, and improving its travel booking site.
