KINGSTON -- Air Jamaica and Virgin Atlantic launched a joint
frequent flyer agreement, effective May 1.
Under the pact, members of Air Jamaica's 7th Heaven and Virgin's
Flying Club programs can accrue and trade in miles for free tickets
on either airline.
To promote the agreement, Air Jamaica is offering double miles
to all Flying Club and 7th Heaven members who fly Air Jamaica
between May 20 and July 20.
In addition, passengers on the return leg of the trip are
eligible for a vacation in Jamaica or Grenada.
Last November, the two carriers signed a letter of intent for a
marketing relationship that covered fare agreements, passenger and
freight interlining and sharing of passenger and ground handling
facilities in addition to frequent flyer reciprocity. The pact
included services between Jamaica, the eastern Caribbean, the U.S.,
London and other destinations served by the two carriers.
