Aegean’s Miles+Bonus program may not sound like a program you are familiar with but it has had a beloved history for many of us who collect miles and points. From things like practically lifetime elite status (which is no longer around, hence not really “lifetime”) to a great award chart (which has changed), easy to retain elite status (which has not changed) and easy sharing of miles (which has not changed), there is a lot to like about Aegean [6 Things to know about Aegean Airlines].
New to Aegean? Receive 2,000 Award Miles and 1,000 Elite Miles for Free!
If you are not familiar with it, Aegean Airlines is the national airline of Greece and flies to destinations around Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. They have a young fleet of aircraft, fantastic cabin crew, and some great prices whether you want to visit the Greek islands or travel from Greece to other countries.
Plus, they are part of the Star Alliance which means that miles you earn in this program can be used to fly on great airlines like Turkish, Asiana, Lufthansa, and more! The only transfer partner available is Marriott which allows you to transfer 60,000 Marriott Reward points to receive 25,000 Aegean miles.
If you are new to the Aegean program, you can sign-up today and earn 2,000 award miles (up from the usual 1,000 miles) and 1,000 elite miles to help you get started with your elite track! Read this post for more on how you earn elite status with Aegean. It is very easy to retain if you are able to reach it! I have been an Aegean Gold member (so, Star Alliance Gold which gives me international lounge access and many more benefits) for years and I only need to earn 12,000 miles and take 4 Aegean flights each year to keep it!
How to Earn Elite Status with Aegean
See these pages for how many miles you need to earn and remember that you can credit any Star Alliance flights to Aegean using your new member number (though not all fare classes will earn miles – see this site for more information).
This promotion expires tonight (December 2 at 11:59PM Greek time) so sign-up quickly! If you are already a member, you can have your family sign-up and they will be able to join you in a family pooling account if you have elite access!
