Lufthansa Group has announced a series of measures to make it easier for Miles and More members to earn or retain status this year.

The “far-reaching, one-time special offers” include status miles for Frequent Travellers and Senators being doubled throughout 2021, regardless of booking class, and all status members earning double HON Circle miles for first and business class flights.

These benefits will be applied to accounts automatically, and will apply retrospectively to any flights made since January 1, 2021.

The offer is valid on all Lufthansa Group flights operated by Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa and Lufthansa Private Jet, Swiss, Eurowings, Brussels Airlines, Air Dolomiti and Edelweiss Air, as well as on flights operated by partner airlines Croatia Airlines, Luxair and LOT Polish Airlines on which status miles and HON Circle miles are awarded.

In addition Frequent Travellers and Senators will earn two status miles for every Euro spent on their Mile and More credit cards.

The group also said that “every Frequent Traveller or Senator who has a Miles and More Credit Card will be given a one-time credit of 5,000 status miles”, including new applications during the promotional period.

A maximum of 30,000 status miles can be earned under through the credit card offers.

Commenting on the news says Joost Greve, head of loyalty at the Lufthansa Group, said:

“We are currently flying by sight and are aware of the difficult situation the Corona pandemic poses for our customers as well. Unfortunately, we cannot predict how travel options will develop this year. That is why we create reliability for our most loyal customers by making it much easier to maintain and achieve the frequent flyer status.”
