This is the first time that a frequent flyer programme (FFP) in India has collaborated with a fuel company like IOCL.
The ability for JetPrivilege members to earn and redeem JPMiles will be initially available at 100 IndianOil outlets in Mumbai & Delhi, with plans to expand to over 500 outlets across 8 cities in 2018.
From March 6, JetPrivilege members will be a step closer towards earning a free flight by simply mentioning their JetPrivilege membership number when paying for their fuel at IOCL outlets.
