JAL-VietJet Tie-Up, Frequent Flyer Links on the Way

Check out our Top Rewards Cards to boost your points earning and travel more!


Japan Airlines and VietJet have announced an extensive tie-up.

VietJet is the fast-rising Vietnamese airline known for its lively flight experience.

Codesharing is the start. Frequent flyer program tie-ups, including points transfer, are on the way. Per the Nikkei report:

The first cooperation between the two companies includes code-sharing and the transfer of reward miles accumulated on one airline to the other, beginning next year, with the aim of offering more choice for customers. Increased cooperation, including a frequent flyers partnership, aircraft operations, maintenance, as well as ground handling and training services, will follow later.

VietJet cash fares are typically inexpensive, so the frequent flyer appeal is more to be able to link up with JAL and their partner awards. JAL also has long-running partner promo awards such as the Bangkok Airways Discount Mileage Promotion., currently extended to booking date of September 30, 2017 for travel up to one year hence.

Japan Airlines Milege Bank (JMB) is an SPG transfer partners, see Upgraded Points’ JMB Guide to learn about the program.
