Citi ThankYou has added a new transfer partner, Turkish Airlines. A nice add after bringing on JetBlue late last year. For Star Alliance flyers this is excellent news; even though you could already transfer Citi ThankYou Points to Star Alliance carriers Singapore Airlines and EVA Air, we now have another option. Check out the complete list of Citi ThankYou Rewards transfer partners.
Transfer Ratio and Minimum Transfer
Transfers follow the same process as with other ThankYou partners. The transfer ratio and minimum transfers are as follows:
- Points transfer at a ratio of 1:1
- Minimum transfer of 1,000 points
Value in Transfers
Turkish Airlines’ Miles & Smiles loyalty program has some great option for redemptions on their own metal as well as on partner Star Alliance carriers including United and Lufthansa. Unfortunately, rewards cannot be booked online, and you will have to call (800-874-8875 in the US). They allow one stopover whether flying with them or with partners. The sweet spots for US residents are roundtrip flights to Europe in Business at 90,000 miles, and South Africa in Business for 135,000 miles. Keep in mind, Turkish does pass on fuel/carrier imposed surcharges.
Turkish Airlines was voted the second-best airline in Europe after Lufthansa and the twelfth best airline in the world. Turkish has one of the largest route networks of any carrier with flights to over 300 destinations worldwide. Its addition to Citi ThankYou as a transfer partner increases the value of Citi ThankYou Points. Hopefully, in the long run, Citi will keep adding more transfer partners giving you, even more, options to use your points.
