Kingfisher Airlines links with Worldhotels in frequent flyer deal

Kingfisher Airlines has joined Worldhotels as the hotel chain’s 21st frequent flyer partner.

The partnership enables members of the Indian airline’s frequent flyer program, King Club, to earn from 500 miles per stay at participating properties worldwide.

Founded in 2005, the fast-growing carrier today operates one of the most extensive domestic networks in India with 330 daily flights to 60 cities, flying over a million passengers a year.

Eight international routes link Delhi and Mumbai to London, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Dubai, Dhaka, Sri Lanka, Singapore and Kathmandu.

“We are delighted to welcome Kingfisher as our latest airline partner,” said Worldhotels vice president Asia Pacific, Roland Jegge.

“Our extensive network of frequent flyer programmes gives our hotels a significant competitive edge and allows them to gain additional business from a highly attractive target group.

“With Worldhotels, our properties have the opportunity to award miles to their customers, which is a service that independent hotels cannot usually offer.”

With deliveries of new aircrafts, Kingfisher plans to launch new long haul flights to cities in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. It is currently in the process of becoming a member of the Oneworld airline alliance.

Kingfisher is part of the United Breweries Group, one of India’s largest conglomerates.

It is also the sponsor of F1 racing outfit, Force India.
