You can now book JetBlue (including Mint) flights with Avios

JetBlue Airways flight redemptions using Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios are now available, and you can book them online. This is great news for travelers who have struggled to find good redemption options for JetBlue flights in the past. JetBlue currently has dynamically priced redemptions in its TrueBlue loyalty program, making it difficult to find flights at a great price point. However, with the introduction of Privilege Club redemptions, travelers can now book JetBlue flights with a fixed award chart.

The Privilege Club pricing for JetBlue redemptions is similar to other partner airlines, such as American Airlines and British Airways. In fact, there is better availability for British Airways flights compared to American Airlines AAdvantage members. This means that travelers will need a certain number of Qatar Avios to book JetBlue flights, depending on the distance of the route.

For example, a flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) will require 6,000 Qatar Avios in economy class and 12,500 Qatar Avios in business class. On the other hand, a flight from New York to London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) will require 20,750 Qatar Avios in economy class and 62,000 Qatar Avios in business class.

One of the best value redemptions is for cross-country journeys in JetBlue’s Mint business-class cabin. With only $10.10 in fees and taxes payable on domestic flights, this is a particularly good value for travelers. In fact, the Avios redemption value for these flights is almost 2 cents each, well above the current Avios valuation of 1.5 cents each. In comparison, JetBlue charges more than 100,000 TrueBlue miles for the same flight, making the Avios redemption a much better option.

Flights to Europe are also priced the same as American Airlines-operated flights, giving travelers access to a larger European network compared to JetBlue’s smaller presence. While the mileage price for business class to Europe is not the lowest in any program, the minimal fees and taxes make it a great deal compared to other programs that impose fuel surcharges.

To earn Qatar Airways Avios, U.S. travelers can transfer Citi ThankYou Rewards points to Privilege Club at a 1:1 ratio. Transfers usually take around two days to process. Avios can also be transferred from British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus, or Aer Lingus AerClub at a 1:1 rate in any direction.

Overall, the availability of JetBlue Airways flight redemptions using Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios is great news for travelers. With fixed redemption rates and great availability, it is now easier than ever to book JetBlue flights using miles. Whether you’re looking for domestic flights or flights to Europe, Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios provide a valuable redemption option for JetBlue flights.
