Family Plan

Endorsing Awards

SKYPASS members can endorse awards to registered family members by redeeming their miles.

Family Plan

Up to 5 family members, including the registered member of the account, may redeem awards through Family Plan. All accumulated mileage of the registered member will be used when pooling family mileage.

  • Authorization from the family member is required for Family Plan.
  • Authorization is valid until it is withdrawn, and you may authorize or withdraw mileage pooling via website at anytime.

This new family mileage combination method will take effect on July 24, 2019.

23 July, 2019
  • You can earn a bonus by covering the miles you lack with a family member’s miles.
  • If a family member’s mileage validity period is shorter than your own, you may use their mileage first even if you have enough of your own mileage to cover the flight.
    * Please apply by contacting our branch office or call center.
