Earn and Redeem

Earn miles or points with any Star Alliance airline

Earn everytime you fly

Earn frequent flyer miles or points when you fly with any Star Alliance airline on a qualifying flight. As long as you are ticketed in an eligible booking class1 your miles or points will be credited to your frequent flyer programme and count towards your Gold or Silver status.

How it works:

If you belong to a frequent flyer programme offered by any Star Alliance member airline, and fly with another member airline, you can earn miles or points. All on one card2.

Simply provide your frequent flyer number when booking your ticket or checking in for your flight. In the event your miles or points do not appear on your account, send all relevant tickets and boarding passes directly to your frequent flyer programme.

1A qualifying flight is any flight that is eligible for earning miles or points. For information about qualifying flights, eligible booking classes and fares, please refer to the terms and conditions of the frequent flying programme you belong to.

2Please note that Star Alliance does not offer a frequent flyer programme, however you can join any of our member airlines’ programmes to earn and redeem miles across the network.
