Background information on the topic

Miles & More – advantageous worldwide

Miles & More is a frequent flyer program which was founded by Lufthansa  on 1 January 1993 with seven hotel and rental car partners. Today, Miles & More is Europe's leading frequent flyer program with 29 Star Alliance partners, nine additional Miles & More airline partners and a total of over 350 additional partner companies. In March 2014, the program numbered over 25 million participants worldwide.

The basic principle of Miles & More: earn air miles and redeem miles

Participants can earn different types of air miles.

Award miles are earned on flights operated by all Miles & More airline partners as well as with numerous partners from many different sectors. In addition, passengers who are holders of a Miles & More Credit Card will be credited additional award miles for every euro spent. Earned award miles can be redeemed for flight upgrades as well as for perks such as hotel vouchers, concert tickets, events and shopping purchases.

At the same time, additional status miles will be credited to the participant's Miles & More account with many Miles & More airline partners. Status miles are key for achieving a frequent flyer status – Frequent Traveller or Senator.

The highest Miles & More status – HON Circle Member – can be achieved by earning HON Circle miles. This miles type will only be credited for flights operated by selected airlines.
