You can start earning miles as soon as you have enrolled with Miles & More.

Naturally you earn miles when you fly, but it is also very easy to earn miles with a large number of interesting partners from a wide range of sectors.

Award, status and HON Circle miles

There are three different kinds of miles:

  • Award miles. These can be spent on awards and remain valid for 36 months. For Frequent Travellers, Senators, HON Circle Members and JetFriends, award miles remain valid without time limit as long as you retain your status.
  • Status miles. These determine your Frequent Traveller and Senator status and are counted in the calendar year in which they are credited. Every status mile is also counted as an award mile.
  • HON Circle miles. These count towards achieving HON Circle status. They are counted over two successive years.

Earn miles on flights

From domestic flights to round-the-world trips, you can earn award miles on virtually every flight operated by the Miles & More airline partners. Depending on the airline, you may be able to earn status and HON Circle miles as well.

To earn miles, enter your Miles & More card number when you make your booking or simply present it at the check-in.
