Information on earning miles

Award miles

The booking method selected is used for the calculation of award miles.

Calculation based on the airfare1

For flight bookings via the booking channel of a Lufthansa Group Airline (Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Eurowings and Brussels Airlines), the following applies:

Award miles = airfare x 4 (or x 6 for members with frequent flyer status)

This method of calculation also applies to flight bookings made through a travel agent or online travel agent, provided that the number of the ticket purchased starts with the following digits: 220 (Lufthansa), 724 (SWISS), 257 (Austrian Airlines), 082 (Brussels Airlines) or if it’s a ticket issued by the Eurowings airline. If you don’t know your ticket number, in most cases you will be able to find it in your confirmation email or on your receipt.

Please note that the ticket price does not included payments for upgrades or for extra services such as seat allocation or excess baggage.

Calculation based on booking class system

If you book via the booking channel of another airline or through a travel agent or online travel agent and the first three digits of your ticket number are not 220 (Lufthansa), 724 (SWISS), 257 (Austrian Airlines), 082 (Brussels Airlines) and it is not a Eurowings airline ticket, the award miles will be calculated based on fixed mileage amounts or according to the flight distance and the booking class – see “status miles/booking class system”.



Airfare = ticket price + supplements charged by the Miles & More partner airline

For worldwide flights the booking class and the distance miles covered are the decisive factors.
