Starwood Preferred Guest has partnered with Korean Air, allowing SPG members to convert their Starpoints into the airline’s Skypass miles.
SPG and Skypass members can transfer points to miles at a 1:1 ratio and for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred, SPG members will earn an additional 5,000 bonus points.
This effectively means that transferring 20,000 Starpoints into Skypass miles could earn a total of 25,000 miles, a 1:1.25 ratio.
To commemorate the partnership between the two parties, new members of SPG that stay with any participating Starwood hotel or resort in the Asia-Pacific region by November 12 will earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints per stay, up to a maximum of 2,000 points during the promotion period.
Meanwhile, Skypass members that do not have an SPG account can continue to receive a 15 per cent discount at participating SPG restaurants and bars in Korea. The offer is also valid until November 12.
