Le Club AccorHotels has launched new partnership with an airline based in the North America that has traditionally been the weak spot for the group.
Members can now earn and convert their Le Club AccorHotels points to United Airlines MileagePlus miles and the conversion ratio is the usual 2 points to 1 mile.
You can access Accor’s page for airline partners here.
The conversion rate of points to miles with most programs is 4,000 points to 2,000 airline miles unless you have enabled the autoconversion. There is lower minimum threshold with United of 2,000 points to 1,000 miles, however.
I would assume that Le Club AccorHotels will launch partnerships with number of airlines in the North America with whom they haven’t had any links previously due to the Fairmont, Swissotel & Raffles merger.
Let’s hope that they have promotions planned with United Airlines to get this new partnership going.
