For Airbnb customers with an appetite for frequent-flyer points, it’s been more famine than feast. Notwithstanding the obvious linkage between on-the-road accommodations and other travel services, Airbnb, which boasts 2.5 million residential properties in 191 countries, is a partner in just three airline programs.
Airbnb is on massive expansion globally and is trying to connect with most obvious partners to provide them with even more clients. Airbnb has started tying up with multiple airlines across the globe. Airbnb is already a partner with Qantas and Delta Airlines.
Airbnb also had a partnership with Virgin America which was later merged into Alaska airlines. Currently, Airbnb has no relation with Alaska Airlines as far as I am aware. It is not mentioned on their website either.
Now, Community-driven hospitality company Airbnb announced its first airline partnership in India with Jet Airways. Airbnb said the announcement adds momentum to the growth of Airbnb’s footprint in the Indian market by focusing on establishing a deeper connect with the new age Indian travelers who seek unique travel experiences.
“We are seeing that millenials are seeking newer interesting ways to travel and are keen to break away from the conventional means to seek authentic experience.
For launching the program, Jet Airways and Airbnb have a lucky draw taking place.
They are giving 5 lucky couples a chance to enjoy a fly and stay holiday for free. To participate, simply book your ticket on jetairways.com or mobile app on or before September 1, 2017, and stand a chance to win a free flight + accommodation to exotic destinations like Bangkok or Colombo.
