Is It worth it?

Jet Airways has one of the best international networks amongst Indian carriers. If you use your credit card for daily spends, you can rack up the miles required for those free international trips. A one way trip from Mumbai to London/Paris/Amsterdam requires 45000 JP Miles. Using your card for Rs. 9,00,000 worth of regular spends or Rs. 4,50,000 worth of flight tickets booked via Jet Airways, can get you a one-way flight to Europe.

Getting access to Premiere Check-In counters saves a lot of time and is an added bonus.

For frequent travellers and regular flyers of Jet Airways, this card is a great option.
