American Airlines and Hyatt Hotels plan to provide frequent travellers more ways to earn miles, points and status when they fly with American or stay at Hyatt. The enhanced loyalty collaboration is expected to launch later this year.
Through this relationship, elite members in both the American Airlines AAdvantage and World of Hyatt loyalty programmes will be rewarded with more access to earning both points and miles on qualifying American flights and Hyatt hotel stays.
In addition to World of Hyatt points earned through Hyatt hotel stays, AAdvantage Gold, Platinum, Platinum Pro, Executive Platinum and ConciergeKey members will be able to earn one AAdvantage bonus mile for every eligible dollar spent at qualifying Hyatt properties. On top of earning more miles, American’s invitation-only ConciergeKey members will receive World of Hyatt Globalist status.
In addition to AAdvantage miles earned by flying on American, World of Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist members will be able to earn one World of Hyatt bonus point for every eligible dollar spent on qualifying American flights. Once the programme launches, AAdvantage and World of Hyatt elite members will be able to register and enjoy these additional loyalty benefits when staying at a Hyatt property or flying on American.
