AirTran A+Rewards members can now convert their credits into Southwest credits to get free flights. For instance, a flier with 16 credits on AirTran (the minimum for one roundtrip award flight), could redeem them for one flight on Southwest instead.
Southwest recently shifted from a credit system like AirTran’s to a points system. But for purposes of conversion, AirTran credits will be redeemable for Southwest credits at an equivalent rate. Southwest points and credits also can be converted into AirTran credits for flights on AirTran.
The frequent flier redemption move is the latest in the two carriers’ merger, and it allows travelers who fly both airlines to combine credits for free flights on either airline.
