Airlines Launch Reciprocal Miles Redemption Program

Airlines Launch Reciprocal Miles Redemption Program

Thanks to a new reciprocal agreement, travelers with three airlines can redeem frequent flyer miles on any of the airlines.

KLM, Air France, and WestJet recently launched a reciprocal frequent flyer program, allowing travelers on any of the airlines to redeem miles on any of the other three. The agreement is another step in combining the airlines in a code share arrangement. Previously, travelers had only been able to earn the joint miles; this is the final step that finally allows travelers to redeem them.

“We are very proud to be partnered with airlines of the caliber of Air France-KLM,”Ed Sims, WestJet Executive Vice-President Commercial, said in a release on Cision. “This is a fantastic step for our WestJet Rewards members and reflects our commitment to expand WestJet’s network reach and offer Canadians the world. We also look forward to continuing to welcome Flying Blue members on board to experience the growing WestJet network and caring guest experience.”

Jean-Noël Rault, Vice-President and General Manager of Air France-KLM Canada, shared the sentiment: “We are thrilled to have come full circle reciprocity-wise with the Flying Blue and WestJet Rewards programs, which now jointly offer our members the possibility to earn and redeem tickets on our combined networks worldwide. It’s a new milestone in our relationship with our Canadian partner, providing direct benefits for our customers and guests.”

WestJet dollars are redeemable on Air France-KLM flights to the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Air France-KLM members can redeem their Flying Blue miles on West Jet flights heading to all of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
