Precautions when earning miles with partner airlines

  • Mileage accrual with partner airlines is based on the actual distance traveled, and the accrual rate may vary according to the routes, cabin class and booking class.
  • Mileage will not be credited for flights on complimentary tickets, award tickets, tickets with discount rate of 50% or more (including Infant tickets), or any other tickets with mileage accrual restrictions.
  • Booking classes eligible for accrual and their accrual rate vary depending on partner airlines. Please find detailed conditions and restrictions by clicking each partner airline’s logo above.
  • Mileage accrual begins from the effective date of partnership between Korean Air and partner airlines, and any flights taken prior to the effective date are not eligible for accrual.
  • Any missing mileage can be accrued by requesting retro-credit if a request is made within one year from the date of travel. In order for miles to be credited, e-ticket and boarding pass must be submitted.

* When traveling on SkyTeam airlines flights (including Korean air codeshare flights operated by SkyTeam airlines), retro-credit request can be made after seven days from the date of travel.

  • Mileage may be credited to only one frequent flyer program regardless of a member’s enrollment in multiple programs offered by various partner airlines. Mileage accrued on a frequent flyer account of one airline cannot be transferred to an account of another airline.
  • Mileage accrual rate, terms and conditions in relation to partners airlines are subject to change at any time without prior notice according to their policy and circumstances.
  • Mileage will not be credited for travel via partner airlines’ chartered flights. Also, when traveling on partner airlines' codeshare flights, mileage may not be accrued depending on actual operating airlines.
