    Kingfisher Airlines today announced an alliance with leading global luxe hotel chain Marriott International to offer members of its frequent flyer programme luxurious stay options across the world.

    Under the agreement, the members of King Club, which is the frequent flyer programme of the airline, can earn up to four times more 'king miles' from June-September period and can stay at any of the 3,400 Marriott properties worldwide.

    "With this association, we at King Club look forward to strengthening our relationship with our members and adding value to their journey by offering them rewards for booking their stay at Marriott," Kingfisher Holidays vice-president, guest loyalty, Anshu Sarin said in a statement here.

    Common members can convert their Marriott reward points into king miles for redemption against free flights, upgrades on the Kingfisher First, lounge vouchers, redemption against exclusive products on air boutique online, the statement said.

    "India is one of our fastest growing regions. In just the past year, Marriott rewards membership here has grown by over 30 percent. We want to be able to provide our members with choice of their preferred travel companies to earn and redeem miles," Marriott Rewards senior vice-president Ed French said.

    The members can also enjoy a host of other privileges like no blackout dates -- members can book their stay at any Marriott property at any time of the year, besides earning two king miles per dollar spent by booking their stay at various Marriott properties, while earning one king mile per dollar spent for stay at properties run/managed by Marriott.

    To avail the benefits of this tie-up, the club members need to enrol themselves in the Marriott rewards programme.

    King Club offers its members many 'earn and redeem' benefits. Its partners include leading global airlines, credit cards, luxury and business hotels, investment and insurance companies, telcos, lifestyle brands, car rental providers, and publishers among others.
