Apart from the mileage accruals, JP Platinum members will be entitled to 25 per cent discount for self-driven and chauffeur-driven vehicles, while JP Gold and Silver members will get 20 and 15 per cent.

According to Mr Rajiv K. Vij, CEO, Hertz India, "Jet Airways is undoubtedly the automatic choice for us as a partner. With this global alliance, we will be in a position to offer a basket of benefits, offers and other services to the discerning set of JP members."

Regarding the addition of four aircraft to its fleet, Mr Peter Leuthi, Chief Operating Officer, Jet Airways, said they would get the aircraft "by spring next year" and that about 200 additional cabin crew would be recruited soon.
