Air Vistara, the new full service carrier of India founded by the old industrial house of Tatas, has announced partnership of its frequent flyer program (ffp) Club Vistara with Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer. Now the Club Vistara members can earn and redeem their miles on flights operate by SIA and SilkAir.
Club Vistara is the first such FFP in India where the points earned are not based on miles flown but on actual spend of the fare. You get to accumulate 5, 6 or 7 points per Rs 100 spent on ticket fare (excluding taxes and surcharges) depending on whether you are a Base, Silver or Gold member of the airline respectively. In yet another first, there will be no physical card issued to the passengers.
