If you read the blog much, you know I am a fan of Aegean’s award program. While other programs continue to gut their programs for the majority of flyers, Aegean continues to add new features that actually make it easier for travelers to take advantage of the miles they earn.
Anyone Can Transfer Aegean Award Miles for One Low Fee

And now, you can take advantage of the miles that others earn and want to share with you! They have had the Together accounts around for a while but those are only for elite members. A Together account allows the account holder and up to 5 family members or friends to accrue award miles all in the same account. But, again, only for elite members as the account holders.
This new feature should help you get the miles for that business class or first class ticket even quicker now – especially since Aegean only charges 45,000 for US – Europe in business or 60,000 for first class!
Now, Aegean has made it possible for anyone to transfer miles to anyone else for the low price of 15€ per transfer. Compared to what other airlines charge for airline mile transfers, that is really low! But, it kind of matches the other fees they charge for awards (they have very low fees for cancellations or changes!).
You can also buy miles to gift to others as well which was something you could not do before. Here are the details of this new feature:
- Award miles can be transferred in sets of 1,000
- Can be done at a fixed transaction fee of 15€, per transfer.
- You can either transfer or receive up to 50,000 award miles within a period of 12 months
