Lufthansa and Veterans Advantage have announced an exclusive military discount benefit partnership – 5 percent off airfares every day for all U.S. Active Duty Military, Military Veterans, National Guard & Reserve and their families who have the Veterans Advantage VetRewards Card.
“We are excited and proud to honor the American military through this partnership,” said Juergen Siebenrock, Lufthansa Vice President The Americas. “With an everyday Veterans Advantage travel discount on destinations worldwide, we believe we have the perfect formula in doing something special for such a worthy group of travelers.”
“The Lufthansa partnership significantly broadens our travel offerings and continues our philosophy of partnering with best-in-class providers,” said H. Scott Higgins, Founder and CEO of Veterans Advantage, and a Vietnam Veteran. “We are pleased that a leading international corporation, and Europe’s largest airline, is joining Corporate America in recognizing our members.”
Veterans Advantage Members already have a similar discount benefit with United Airlines, and through today’s announcement they enjoy the added convenience of connecting services coverage: When booking connecting travel using the United and Lufthansa benefits, the entire itinerary is covered for discount in one booking without having to jump to the other carrier’s website.
Veterans Advantage members are able to get discounts on Lufthansa Airlines travel through a special booking link in MEMBERS ONLY. As an added benefit, Veterans Advantage members may enjoy discounted travel and also enroll in Miles and More, the airline’s reward points program, to accumulate points on their discounted tickets for future travel. “As a founding partner of the Star Alliance, which also includes our partner United Airlines, Lufthansa’s participation in the Veterans Advantage program delivers a multitude of additional worldwide travel options with the power of combining rewards points on that discounted travel through both airlines,” Siebenrock added.
