Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata group and Singapore Airlines, today announced a reciprocal partnership for its frequent flyer program, Club Vistara (CV), with Lufthansa’s Miles & More frequent flyer program.
The partnership enables Club Vistara members to earn and redeem CV Points on flights operated and marketed by Lufthansa, covering an extensive network of nearly 200 destinations across the world. Reciprocally, Miles & More members will be able to earn and redeem miles on flights operated by Vistara. The partnership agreement comes into effect on 27 October 2021.
Vistara’s Chief Commercial Officer, Vinod Kannan, said, “We are delighted to extend our strong partnership with Lufthansa and bring synergies between our respective frequent flyer programs. I am confident that this will enable us to provide greater value and convenience to our Club Vistara members on their travels across the world. We are also equally excited to welcome Miles & More members and provide them a consistent, world-class flying experience when they fly ‘India’s best airline’.”
“We are pleased to strengthen the already started codeshare partnership between Vistara and Lufthansa with the start into the Miles & More programme,” said Christopher Siegloch, Senior Director Loyalty Programme Development & Service at Miles & More GmbH. “Vistara as a strong partner and popular airline extends our airline portfolio and therefore offers added value to our Miles & More members which now have the opportunity to earn and redeem miles on Vistara flights.”
Vistara’s three-class cabin configuration with India’s only Premium Economy class provides Lufthansa customers consistency in comfort and overall experience on Vistara’s steadily growing domestic and international network. The two airlines had entered into a codeshare partnership in December 2019.
Club Vistara is India’s fastest-rewarding frequent flyer program that offers four tiers of membership – CV Base, CV Silver, CV Gold, and CV Platinum. Club Vistara members can also earn and redeem CV Points when travelling on other partner airlines such as Air Canada, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and United Airlines. Vistara inaugurated its non-stop flights between Delhi and Frankfurt earlier this year, a route operated by its brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
