Are you a member of Japan Airlines' Mileage Bank frequent flyer program? If you are and Japan Airlines (JAL) happens to be your airline of choice, you will be pleased with Japan Airlines' latest move aimed at letting its frequent flyer program members earn and redeem miles easily around the world.

Just recently, Japan Airlines launched its new online platform called JAL Mileage Bank World Marketplace. With a strong focus on the international market, Mileage Bank members can earn as well as redeem miles on hotel bookings, car rentals, and numerous online shops through JAL Mileage Bank World Marketplace.

Not only does the platform offer incredible value and convenience to Japan Airlines' customers, the rewards offerings that Mileage Bank members now have access to have been vastly increased. Case in point, Mileage Bank members can now earn and redeem miles for travel to more than 140 countries globally. They can also shop online from their favorite international brands and have their purchases delivered without hassle on their end.

JAL Mileage Bank World Marketplace lets Mileage Bank members earn and redeem miles at a whopping 550,000 properties worldwide, including Japan. Mileage Bank members can also earn and redeem miles with 20 car rental companies thanks to the new platform. That's not all, Mileage Bank members can shop for a wide assortment of products using miles (from as little as 4,000 miles), as well as earn miles on their purchases when they online shop on Japan Airlines' international partner shops through JAL Mileage Bank World Marketplace.

What's more, JAL Mileage Bank World Marketplace has been thoughtfully designed to offer a fuss-free experience for Japan Airlines' customers; the platform is actually available in 4 different languages: Japanese, English, Korean, Chinese (Simplified). Adding on to the user experience, customers are free to opt for USD, JPY, or EUR as their preferred currency when making credit card transactions on the site.

For those who do not already know, Japan Airlines is a oneworld member airline, alongside global carriers American Airlines, Qantas, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair and more. At this year's Skytrax World Airline Awards, Japan Airlines won the World's Best Economy Class and World's Best Economy Class Seat awards.
