There are 11 Chase Sapphire Reserve airline partners, including JetBlue, Southwest and United. Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders can transfer points to partner airlines’ frequent flyer programs in increments of 1,000, at a rate of one partner mile per Chase Sapphire Reserve point.
This can be a good option if you already have a lot of miles with a particular airline partner. But not all airlines’ miles have equal value. So, some Chase Sapphire Reserve airlines will offer a better deal for your points than others.
Here are the Chase Sapphire Reserve airline partners:
- AerLingus AirClub
- Air Canada Aeroplan
- British Airways Executive Club
- Emirates Skywards
- Flying Blue AIR FRANCE/KLM
- Iberia Plus
- JetBlue TrueBlue
- Singapore Airlines Kris Flyer
- Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards
- United MileagePlus
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
To transfer points to one of Chase Sapphire Reserve’s airline partners, log in to the Chase Ultimate Rewards site, click “Use Points” and select “Transfer to travel partners.” Then click on the loyalty program you want to use, enter your membership information and choose an amount to transfer. Lastly, double-check everything because all transfers are final.
In addition to its airline partners, Chase lets you transfer points to the loyalty programs of three different hotel chains. And remember that you’re not limited to booking flights with official Chase Sapphire Reserve airline partners. You’ll earn 3 points per $1 spent on airfare on any airline when you charge it to your Chase Sapphire Reserve card or 1 - 10 points per $1 spent when you book through Chase. And your $300 annual travel credit can cover any type of airfare, too.
