Redeem Qatar Avios on JetBlue
The partnership between Qatar Airways and JetBlue got a big boost today. An email from Qatar reveals that it is now possible to redeem Qatar Avios for travel on JetBlue.
Here’s the text of the email:
Dream of embarking on a sweet escape? You can make your wish come true by spending Avios with our partner, JetBlue.
Simply book your award flight with JetBlue on qatarairways.com or our mobile app. Then you’ll be all set to reach more destinations with your Avios.
Explore many picturesque locations across the United States of America and the Caribbean. You can also enjoy direct flights with JetBlue from the United States of America to London, Paris and Amsterdam.
Qatar Airways recently adopted Avios as its loyalty program currency. Avios is the currency used by British Airways Executive Club, AerClub, Iberia Plus and Vueling Club. You can easily move Avios between these programs, and now you can also use them to book JetBlue flights.
But how many Avios do you need to that JetBlue flight you wat? Check out Qatar Airways’ partner airline award chart below:
|Distance for sector||Avios required (one-way)|
|Miles||Economy Class||Premium Economy||Business Class||First Class|
This can be a good opportunity to use Avios for JetBlue’s popular Mint product for transcontinental and transatlantic travel. That would cost you 38,750 and 62,000 miles respectively for one-way. But we also see occasional transfer bonuses for Avios, which would make that an even better deal.
