Miles & More

EARN MILES FOR YOUR TRAVEL ON TOP

The Miles & More program has three categories that offer different benefits: Frequent Traveler, Senator, and HON Circle.

You can use your reward miles however you want, and exchange them easily, such as for a trip to your desired location.

Sustainable Business: level up your sustainability effort

Bring your sustainability to a business level. Every traveler with the Lufthansa Group can offset CO₂ emissions. As a business, you have the option to upgrade to our Green Fares or choose a more flexible Compensaid plan.

Get started with ease: Green Fares

In order to travel more consciously, reducing and offsetting the CO₂ emissions caused by air travel plays an important role. Our travellers can opt for the Green Fares tariff, which enables environmentally conscious flying throughout Europe. This tariff comes with a 20% cut in CO₂ emissions through Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) and 80% offset through top-grade climate protection projects.

Sustainable business travel: Compensaid

With Compensaid, you have control over making your travels more environmentally friendly: both during and after your flight, you have the option of either offsetting or reducing your emissions. Compensaid provides you with both - the ability to offset emissions through climate protection initiatives or decrease them with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) technology

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) are fuels made without fossil fuels and meet strict sustainability standards. They offer a vital substitute for traditional aviation fuel and are central to the aviation industry's shift toward sustainability. SAF generates a much smaller carbon footprint than conventional kerosene, especially when made of biogenic residues, reducing its environmental impact by around 80%.

Compensate with points and miles

As a contribution to sustainability in the company, PartnerPlusBenefit members can convert their Benefit Points into SAF. Depending on the amount of Benefit Points redeemed, companies receive a Scope 3 certificate for CO₂ savings in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Standard for their commitment. Miles & More also offers the opportunity to offset the CO₂ emissions of your flights as part of its program.

Limitless Connectivity: spreading your wings

CONNECT AND GROW INTERNATIONALLY

A large selection of amenities

Lufthansa Group for Start-ups

These emerging start-ups benefit from both programs: Miles&More and PartnerPlusBenefit.
