The migration to the new loyalty system and allocation of new account number will not impact on your ability to claim missing miles. Members will be allowed to submit, from the member website, all retro claims for travel within the previous six months. Miles will be credited into your account within 24 hours once travel details have been validated.
Q. What would happen to my accounts if I previously held both a Caribbean Miles and a 7th Heaven Rewards account?
Effective 01 August, 2011, with the acquisition of Air Jamaica by Caribbean Airlines, members were entitled to earn miles for each Caribbean Airlines flight flown. A member may have opted to deposit these miles to either the Caribbean Miles account or 7th Heaven Rewards account and were encouraged to merge these accounts. Any duplicate accounts identified in the migration process will now be merged automatically and any flight transaction that is found to have been duplicated will be reversed

The merger of the 7th Heaven Rewards frequent flyer programme will be completed in phases.

The projected timeline for this phase is September 2016.

Q. I have had instances where my miles have not been automatically credited to my account even though I have complied with procedure to add my frequent flyer account to my booking, how can I guarantee that this will not happen when my account is moved to Caribbean Miles?
In order to ensure that you continue to receive regular statements, programme updates and communication on special offers, we also require that you update your profile data with any change in name, postal and e-mail address and ensure that all data fields such as gender, date of birth, etc. is filled in before your account is migrated to the new system. Please review and update these details with a 7th Heaven Rewards Service Centre agent at your earliest opportunity.

All dormant accounts that have had no activity for a period of 48 months would have been archived and not migrated to the new loyalty system. Please visit our website to create a new account.
