As a Frequent Traveller, you enjoy benefits that make travelling even more enjoyable for you. You can enjoy these benefits when flying with Lufthansa Group airlines, co-issuing Miles & More airline partners and Star Alliance airlines.

How to become a Frequent Traveller

To achieve or renew your Frequent Traveller status, you need to earn at least 650 Points and 325 Qualifying Points in a calendar year. You can view your current progress under your status in your Miles & More account at any time.


The simple earning system lets you quickly see how many Points and Qualifying Points you’ll get for a flight. This makes your journey to becoming a Frequent Traveller entirely transparent.

Key benefits for Frequent Travellers

Frequent Traveller status card and bag tag

When you qualify as a Frequent Traveller, you get a silver status card that is valid for at least one year, as well as a high-quality bag tag in the status colour.

Business Class check-in

Regardless of the travel class you have booked, when travelling on scheduled flights operated by Miles & More airline partners you can use the Business Class check-in counter.

Please note the check-in deadlines for your chosen travel class.
It will be even quicker for you at airports which have a priority check-in area (currently Frankfurt/Main and Munich).
