I always love when airlines add partners – in essence it increases the value of the points since new partners mean more redemption opportunities are available.

Starting March 4, 2011, Jet Airways is now a partner of US Airways Dividend Miles. This is great news for a couple reasons: Star Alliance has a relatively small imprint at JFK, so having another European departure (JFK-BRU, which is a Star Alliance hub) only increases travel opportunities. Also, US Airways charges 120,000 for business class and 160,000 for first class and Jet’s service is top notch, thus totally making this redemption opportunity very valuable.

Overall, this only adds to the reason why people should take advantage of the cheap Buy Miles promotions. In case you don’t want to accrue US Airways miles, Jet is a partner of Delta, so you can use Skymiles to book Jet flights (note – first class redemptions are not allowed).

I’ll update later when we find out what the taxes/fuel surcharges will be on awards.
