Earning Miles for Awards
Miles are automatically credited to your Aeroflot Bonus account when you give your membership number to a customer service agent at the time you reserve or purchase a flight. Otherwise you can show your membership card or give your account number at the time of check-in.
Rules for earning miles through our programme partners may vary, so make sure you understand and follow their unique rules and conditions.
Earning Miles for Elite Membership
Members who earn enough qualifying miles in any calendar year (January 1 to December 31), or who fly enough segments on Aeroflot Russian Airlines and partner airlines, are awarded Elite Membership status, as follows:
- Silver Membership – fly 25 segments or earn 25000 qualifying miles
- Gold Membership – fly 50 segments or earn 50000 qualifying miles
Even if you redeem Aeroflot Bonus miles for an Award, all qualifying miles you earn throughout the year still apply toward Elite Membership.
Miles that qualify for Elite Membership are awarded whenever you fly Aeroflot Russian Airlines or our partner airlines on eligible fares. Actual miles earned are based on the distance of the flight and the booking class. All flights earn a minimum of 500 qualifying miles (excluding Alitalia – AZ, Kenya Airways – KQ, Air Europa – UX, Delta – DL, China Southern – CZ, Vietnam Airlines – VN) regardless of the distance or booking class. See Terms and Conditions for details.
Miles earned through non-flight partner services (e.g., hotel and car rental) and special Aeroflot Bonus promotions are non-qualifying, meaning they do not count towards Elite Member status. Extra tier bonus flight miles earned by Gold and Silver members are also non-qualifying.
The actual number non-flight miles you may earn from Aeroflot Bonus Partners varies according to the terms and conditions of each partner.
25000 qualifying miles or 25 flight segments are required for Silver Membership, and 50000 qualifying miles or 50 flight segments for Gold.
*a flight segment is the part of the flight that corresponds to one flight coupon of the ticket. If no miles are credited for the flight according to the paid fare not included in the Earning miles table, the flight segment is not considered for an upgrade.
Using your miles for Awards will not affect these calculations.
Miles statements are sent every 3 months to each Member who has been rewarded with miles during that time period, so you can see how many miles you have earned over the past 3 months.
Please refer to the Aeroflot Bonus Terms and Conditions for details.
