Airline Credit Cards

Some credit cards are co-branded with an airline and offer card holders miles they can apply toward their frequent flyer account as well as perks like VIP lounge access, free baggage checking, priority boarding, first-class upgrades, and more. If you are a frequent flyer of one airline in particular, you may want to apply for the credit card offered by that airline. Rewards offered by an airline branded credit card will only be redeemable with that specific airline. Blackout dates and other limitations may apply when redeeming rewards.
