Business - Kingfisher Airlines teams up with Hilton HHonors

Mumbai, Jan 12 (ANI/Business Wire India): Kingfisher Airlines today announced its alliance with Hilton HHonors the guest rewards program for the more than 3,000 Hilton Family Hotels worldwide.

The new alliance allows members of King Club, frequent flyer programme of Kingfisher Airlines, to earn both King Miles and HHonors points when they stay at Hilton Family of hotels.

Hilton HHonors is the only guest rewards programme in the world that lets members earn both hotel points and airline miles for the same stay and redeem points for free nights with No Blackout Dates.

Hilton Family hotels are among the most well-known and well-respected brands in the industry including Hilton, Conrad Hotels and Resorts, Doubletree by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Garden InnT, Hilton Grand VacationsT, Homewood Suites by HiltonT, and The Waldorf = Astoria CollectionT hotels.

Commenting on this alliance, Anshu Sarin, Deputy General Manager - King Club, Kingfisher Airlines Limited said, "At King Club, our vision is to deliver unmatchable and innovative benefits across the world to our members, in collaboration with leading national and international brands The alliance with Hilton HHonors is yet another initiative that promises to reward our guests."

"We are constantly looking for ways to provide our members with options," said Adam Burke, senior vice president, customer loyalty, Hilton Hotels Corporation.

"Now, HHonors members who frequently fly with Kingfisher Airlines can enjoy earning both King Miles and HHonors points when they stay at Hilton Family hotels around the world,"added Burke.

King Club and Hilton HHonors members can earn Points and Miles in either of the following ways:

-- Points and Variable Miles: Earn 10 HHonors points and one King Mile for every eligible dollar charged to room at all Hilton Family hotels

-- Points and Fixed Miles: Members regularly earn 10 HHonors points for every eligible dollar charged to room and 500 King Miles per stay (100 miles at Hampton and Homewood)

Since earning Points and Variable Miles can maximize points and King Miles during longer stays and Points and Fixed Miles may offer more King Miles during shorter stays, HHonors members have the opportunity to change their earnings style with every stay.

King Club, the frequent flyer programme of Kingfisher Airlines, has today come to be regarded as one of the most rewarding programme in its space and offers its members an unparalleled level of 'earn and redeem' benefits.

In order to start earning King Miles and HHonors points, consumers can enrol in Hilton HHonors at HiltonHHonors.com. Hilton HHonors members need to then sign into their HHonors account and select Kingfisher Airlines as their preferred airline partner and ensure that they present their King Club membership card at the time of check-in.

In addition to earning Points and King Miles, King Club members who are also HHonors members can now convert their HHonors points into King Miles.

For every 10,000 Hilton HHonors points King Club members can make an exchange for 1,000 King Miles. Every additional or subsequent conversion has to be in multiples of 10,000 Hilton HHonors points. (ANI)
