Check Your Status
Benefits and Privileges
Recognising and rewarding your loyalty
You can earn status miles across all Star Alliance member airlines’ Frequent Flyer Programmes with only one frequent flyer card and attain Star Alliance Silver status or progress to Gold status. The higher tier status levels of each of our member airlines’ Frequent Flyer Programmes are mapped against the two uniformly recognised Star Alliance status levels “Star Alliance Silver” and “Star Alliance Gold”. These two status levels entitle you to enjoy special Star Alliance premium customer benefits and privileges.

Your loyalty as a frequent flyer to the Star Alliance network has earned you Gold Status. We repay you by recognising you across the entire network with a special welcome and a set of privileges that will make your journey smoother and more comfortable.
Silver Status recognises that you have shown a good degree of loyalty to Star Alliance member airlines and earns you two privileges that can make your journey smoother. If you carry on flying with Star Alliance member airlines you may go on to qualify for our top status level, Star Alliance Gold.
