Several years ago I joined the JetFriends program which is designed for children.
The reason I wanted to be a member is because for some reason I’ve not known the answer to, the Miles&More program wouldn’t allow members without miles in their account to search for award space (and I much wanted to be able to search Lufthansa and Swiss award availability as offered to their own members as opposed to as offered to their partners like United or ANA), but that restriction was lifted for members of this program.
At the time I had to mail in written parental consent to be a member of the program. I had no problem giving my own consent, of course.
Fortunately it appears that paper and postage is no longer necessary, consent is now handled via email.
And JetFriends is offering 2000 miles for joining.
All new JetFriends members are helped to get off the ground with 2,000 miles takeoff credit! There are also more miles to be earned for every flight you make, and with all Miles & More partners. But that’s not all – JetFriends offers even more benefits! Members of the free club are given a deep insight into the world of flying, not just at the JetFriends website, but also on special guided tours for kids through the airport and the Austrian Airlines hangar.
Although your date of birth when registering for the program will need to suggest you’re between the ages of 2 and 17.
When you go to the JetFriends page you can change the language from German to English if you wish at the bottom left of the page.
