How can I earn Miles?

To earn Miles according to the Aeromexico earning scheme, you must purchase a flight that is marketed and operated by Aeromexico. The distance you fly in miles provides a number that forms the basis of what you will earn. Your booking sub-class will determine the applicable earning percentage. Have a look at the scheme below and read more about how it works.

Aeromexico Accrual scheme (effective as of 01-02-2016):
Cabin Class Booking sub-class Earn %
First Class N/A N/A
Business Class J, C 175%
D, I 125%
Economy Class Y, B, M 100%
U, H, K, L, Q, T 50%
E, V, N, R, W 25%

How many Miles will I earn?

The number of Award Miles and Level Miles you will earn depends on three important factors:

1) The marketing carrier and the operating airline

The accrual scheme of the marketing carrier determines how many Miles you can earn on your flight. It is easy to find out which airline is the marketing carrier for your flight. The two-digit airline code that comes before the flight number (e.g. AM 0123) shows which airline is the marketing carrier.

If your flight number starts with an airline code from one of the Flying Blue partner airlines (e.g. AZ 0123) the accrual scheme of that specific partner (in this case Alitalia) will apply, even if the flight is operated by another airline. Please check the relevant airline partner page for more information about the number of Miles you can earn.

2) The distance flown
The distance in miles between the place of origin and destination determines the number of Award Miles and Level Miles you will earn. But when the distance you cover one-way is less than 750 miles on an international flight or 500 miles on a domestic flight, Flying Blue offers you a minimum number of Miles: in this case, you will earn the minimum 750 or 500 Award Miles and Level Miles respectively. Please note that the accrual scheme also applies to the minimum amount.

3) The booking sub-class
Every cabin class is divided into different booking sub-classes, related to the fare you booked. The booking sub-class is specified as a letter on your ticket and will determine the percentage of Miles you earn based on the distance flown, as described above. Please have a look at the accrual scheme to check the earning percentage for your booking sub-class.

How does the calculation work?

Use our handy Miles Calculator to find out how many Miles you will earn with your ticket. An explanation of the calculation for earning Miles is given below.

Earning Level Miles
  1. The distance flown is multiplied with the earning percentage of the booking sub-class.

Level Miles = distance in miles x earning percentage of booking sub-class

Earning Award Miles
  1. The distance flown is multiplied with the earning percentage of the booking sub-class.
  2. The distance flown is multiplied with the earning percentage of the Elite bonus, if applicable.
  3. These numbers are added up.

Award Miles = (distance in miles x earning percentage of booking sub-class) +
(distance in miles x earning percentage Elite bonus)

For example

AM flight from Mexico City to Montreal (International flight: 2,306 miles one-way)
