We suggest that you register with the name shown on the passport you use most frequently for your flight tickets. If you travel with your second passport in the future and wish to claim your miles, you must provide copies of both of your passports to us through email, stating your issues, so that we can help record your name as it appears on your second passport.
Yes! You can download the Asia Miles app from App Store or Google Play to check your Miles balance instantly, or check your registered email (please make sure you've provided us with a valid email address), where we send a monthly Account Summary.
Please ensure that your registered email address is up to date in order to receive your monthly Account Summary. It is also possible that our emails were mistakenly directed to the junk or spam folders of your mailbox. So please check there to potentially recover your Account Summary emails. Alternatively, you can log in to your account, go to "Account overview", and view your "Monthly statements".
With Asia Miles you can redeem non-flight related awards, so you don't have to be travelling to redeem awards. Check out a wide range of awards in the "Redeem awards" section. Alternatively, you can also renew your miles (with service fee applies) from the old time-based system. Upon renewal, the Miles will fall into the new activity-based system.
However, please note that Miles renewal is not applicable for the new activity-based system. Under the new expiry rule that went into effective on 1 January 2020, you will be able to keep your Asia Miles account active so long as you earn or use your Miles once every 18 months. We encourage you to make any transaction through earning or redeeming at your earliest convenience in order to stay active.
To check your monthly statements, simply log in to your Asia Miles account, go to "Account overview", and check your "Monthly statements" going back as far as 12 months.
You can change your membership name by submitting an online enquiry form to us. Follow the steps below:
Select "Update your membership name or date of birth".
Leave us a message stating you need to change your name and attach copies of your new and old passports.
Once we receive your request, we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please submit your cancellation request by emailing us. Any outstanding miles will be cancelled at the same time.
For all new Miles earned from 1 January 2020, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last Miles crediting or debiting date. All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will continue to follow the old Miles expiry arrangement, and are valid for three years from the month the Miles are credited.
An Asia Miles membership account without any recorded activity for a period of 36 months will be closed without notice once all remaining Asia Miles have expired.
Please click here to unbind Asia Miles and OpenRice account.
A physical membership card is available on request with a service fee of USD50 or 5,000 Asia Miles. You can send us a request here, or you can download the Asia Miles app from App Store or Google Play to get the mobile membership card.
A mobile membership card can be used in addition to your physical membership card. You can download the Asia Miles app from App Store or Google Play.

It's easy to earn Asia Miles. Just quote your Asia Miles membership number when making your booking and when you check in at the airport. If your flights and fare classes are eligible, miles will be credited to your Asia Miles account within 4 to 6 weeks after completing your travels. You can check whether your flights and fare classes are eligible in the "Airline partners" section by selecting the airlines you have traveled with.
You can use the “Airline miles calculator” to calculate the number of Asia Miles you can earn on eligible flights and eligible fare class.
Miles credited are based on the fare class booked and shown on the air ticket. Not all fare classes are eligible for Asia Miles. For details refer to the "What you can earn" section under each individual airline partner page. The fare class is normally indicated under the Itinerary section of your flight ticket receipt.
Asia Miles are awarded based on the “great-circle distance” in miles between the origin and destination airports. For connecting or through flights that require a change in flight number, the sum of the “great-circle distance” for each segment will form the basis of the amount of Asia Miles credited.
Airline Miles may not have been credited to your account if you didn't provide your Asia Miles membership number during booking and check-in. To make a claim for these missing miles, log in to your account, go to "Manage your Miles", click "Claim missing Miles", and select "Claim airline Miles". Follow the instructions to complete the process. Just make sure you do so after 7 days, but within 6 months of the travel date. If your claim is successful, the Miles you should have earned will be credited into your account within 6 to 8 weeks. Please note that new members can only claim missing Miles for flights taken within 30 days prior to their enrolment date.
This can be caused by different reasons, such as a name mismatch, a membership number mismatch, ineligible fare class and other similar issues. It is also possible that your flight was ineligible for earning Asia Miles – please refer to the "Airline partners" section to check eligibility. To avoid missing out on Asia Miles due to name mismatches, please make sure that the name on your passport, ticket and membership profile all match each other exactly.
You can submit missing miles requests online for all airline partners. More details on how you should claim your airline miles can be found here.
Depending on the airline partner, you may need to submit the scanned copies of your boarding pass(es) and ticket(s) together with the missing Miles request form.
Please refer to the claim airline Miles page for the required supporting documents of each airline.
These letter codes on boarding passes are just for onboard cabin class identification (e.g., "Y" or "M" represent onboard Economy class for Cathay Pacific). Miles credits, however, are based on the fare class booked and shown on your ticket receipt − not on the boarding pass.
Yes, you can receive Asia Miles for eligible flights completed no more than 30 days prior to the date of your enrolment with Asia Miles.
Asia Miles are only awarded to the member who has flown on the flight. To earn Asia Miles, names on the flight ticket, passport and membership must be identical.
No, miles or points can only be awarded to one frequent flyer or travel reward programme at a time. Therefore, you will need to quote your preferred programme's membership number when you make your reservations and present the same membership card at check-in, in order for eligible flights to be credited to your account.
A codeshare flight is a flight marketed by one airline and operated by another airline. That flight generally carries flight numbers from both airlines. Certain codeshare flights are ineligible for the accrual of Asia Miles. Please check with the relevant airline reservation office to confirm the eligibility status.
It's possible that the web browser you used at the time of your purchase had cookies disabled. Please be sure to accept the merchant site cookies as well. Cookies allow us to track your purchase and without them there's no way for the system to allocate Asia Miles to your account. Your purchase will be processed as follows: within 5 days of purchase, the sale transaction will be acknowledged when you receive a purchase status email from Asia Miles iShop support. The lead-time for the approval of purchase transactions typically takes 120 days, but may take longer depending on the individual merchant. If the transaction is approved by the merchant, Asia Miles will normally be credited to a member's account within 30 days.
Once we receive your missing miles request, your claim will be verified within five working days. You can check your "iShop transaction history" to check the status of your claim.
For untracked purchases: If the claim is valid, we will track the sales again and resend a purchase acknowledgement email to you. Miles will then be credited through the normal flow (i.e. the corresponding merchant will verify the transaction within 120 days. Once you receive the purchase approval email, Asia Miles will then be credited to the member's account within 30 days).
For tracked purchases: Valid claims will be acknowledged by email. Miles credit will then go through the normal flow (i.e. the corresponding merchant will verify the transaction within 120 days. Once you receive the purchase approval email, Asia Miles will then be credited to the member's account within 30 days). If the claim is invalid, we will notify you about why the case is invalid.
Your Asia Miles may be cancelled for a number of reasons. The most common are:
You have returned the products you purchased to the merchant.
Your payment failed or you didn't meet the merchant’s credit check requirements.
Your last website visit with this merchant didn't come from the same page that was directed from the Asia Miles iShop website.
Your transaction didn't meet the merchant’s terms and conditions.
Your transaction has been deemed not for genuine personal use.
You didn’t accept the merchant site cookies.
Unfortunately no. We are unable to retrospectively allocate Asia Miles. Whenever you shop, always try to remember to visit the merchant's website only via the Asia Miles iShop. This allows cookies to track your visit so that we can allocate Asia Miles to your account accordingly.
The Asia Miles iShop works in this way:
You must logon to Asia Miles account and click “Shop Now” from the merchant page to make a purchase.
Upon making a confirmed purchase, you will receive an acknowledgement email from Asia Miles iShop support within 5 days. This will be noted in our "iShop transaction history".
The iShop merchant will verify the transaction. This typically takes up to 120 days, but may take longer depending on the merchant. If a transaction is in the process of being refunded or payment is not successful, the respective merchant will not approve the purchase and the corresponding miles will not be credited.
If the transaction is approved by the merchant, you'll receive an approval email from Asia Miles iShop support. Your iShop status can be viewed in your "iShop transaction history".
Asia Miles will then be credited to the member's account within 30 days. This will also be reflected in your "iShop transaction history".
Here are some best practice guidelines to help make sure you receive your Asia Miles:
Make sure you log in to Asia Miles iShop and click the “Shop now” button for the relevant merchant.
Complete all your online purchases in one session.
If you decide after the check-out stage that you want to purchase something else, close the merchant site window and start the process again from the Asia Miles iShop site.
Don't retrieve previously-saved items from your shopping cart − instead, start from the beginning of the purchase process.
If you're buying insurance, make sure you start from a completely new quote. Don't retrieve a saved one or use a renewal offer if you're already a policy-holder.
Don't click on another banner or website promoting the merchant before you complete your transaction. If you must visit another site before completing your purchase, please use a different browser to do so. Interrupting the browser session that started from the Asia Miles iShop can affect the tracking of your purchase.
Don't use promotional discount vouchers other than those displayed on the Asia Miles iShop. Doing so may cause the referral to come from the code issuer rather than from Asia Miles iShop.
Telephoning the merchant to complete or modify your order will likely override the Asia Miles iShop referral – therefore your Asia Miles will not be properly credited.
Some ad-blocking software programmes block the special tracking codes we need to track your purchases, so please disable these programmes during this process.
Unless otherwise stated, purchases made through merchant apps will not earn miles. Please make your purchase from their website via your browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer) and follow our other T&Cs to be eligible for your reward.
Make sure the merchant site cookies are accepted when you land on the site from Asia Miles iShop.
There are many different ways to earn Asia Miles with our non-airline partners. Please refer to "Ways to earn" under "Earn miles" to learn more about earning miles with individual partners. Also, you can go to "Discover" and then "Hottest offers" to learn more about our offer promotions. Please note though, not all of the services and products purchased from our partners are eligible for miles accrual. Please ensure that the services and products you are using qualify for miles and / or are offered at a rate which is eligible for miles.
Dine at our Partner Restaurants and present your membership QR code in the Asia Miles App or physical membership card when you pay the bill to earn Miles. If the payment is made by charge / credit card, the name on the payment card should match the name on the membership card. Partner restaurants outside Hong Kong and Taiwan will also provide an Asia Miles dining receipt (or electronically printed restaurant receipt with pre-printed membership number and member name).
The Miles will normally be credited to your account within 7 days when you dine at our Partner restaurants in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and within 6 to 8 weeks for other Partner Restaurants worldwide. Check out the “Dining & Banquets” section under "Earn Miles" on the menu for more details.
Unfortunately no. Miles from credit / charge card partners can take 4 to 6 weeks to process. We are unable to accelerate the process as we are unable to access our partners’ systems. You can also check with relevant Finance & Insurance partners for details.
To claim missing non-airline Miles, simply log in to your Asia Miles account, go to "Manage your Miles", click "Claim missing Miles", and select "Claim other Miles". Follow the instructions to complete the process. Missing non-airline Miles can be claimed from the following partner categories: Hotels, Cars & Transport, Dining & Banquets, Travel and Retail.
There are a few reasons this could happen. One possibility is not quoting your membership number during your purchase. It is also possible that the service or rate you paid was not eligible for accruing Asia Miles. Please refer to the "Earn miles" section and related terms and conditions under individual partners for details on eligibility.
For missing non-airline Miles requests, original receipts may be required. All documents submitted will be retained for record-keeping purposes, so we suggest that you keep copies for your own reference.
Sorry, open-dated award tickets are not permissable. You can only redeem tickets for award travel with a confirmed reservation.
Unfortunately not. One of the principal rules pertaining to flight tickets is that they have to be used according to the sequence they were issued (meaning coupon after coupon). Should a ticket not be used in sequence, all flight coupons following the original used coupon will be forfeited and become invalid for further use.
To redeem award tickets on partner airlines that can't be redeemed online, you can submit a Flight Award request form. An Asia Miles member services executive will look into it and get back to you. Alternatively, you can call our Asia Miles service hotline for assistance.

The change is from a time-based system to an activity-based system. From 1 January 2020 (HKT), you can keep your Asia Miles active so long as you earn or redeem Miles at least once every 18 months*. (Remarks: *For all new Miles earned from 1 January 2020, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last Miles crediting or debiting date. All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will continue to follow the former Miles expiry arrangement.)
That means your newly earned Miles will no longer expire three years after being credited to your account.
Under the new activity-based system, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last crediting or debiting date, but not the activity or transaction date.
Asia Miles that are earned on or before 31 December 2019 have fallen under the time-based system and they are valid for three years from the month the Miles are credited.
The new rule, which came into effect on 1 January 2020, is based on an activity-based system. That means so long as you earn or redeem your Miles at least once every 18 months, the newly earned Miles will remain active*. (Remarks: *For all new Miles earned from 1 January 2020, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last Miles crediting or debiting date. All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will continue to follow the former Miles expiry arrangement.)
We’ve been listening to our members’ feedback on what they value most. We know that every Mile counts and we recognise our members’ needs. That’s why we have been enhancing our programme to provide our members a Life Rewarded journey.
The latest arrangement is to provide you with a more rewarding Miles journey with us. When your Miles last longer, you will have more control of the Miles and enjoy the best choices however, whenever and wherever you use the Miles.
Activity or transaction date is the date when you conduct the activity or transaction, such as any spending you do with your credit card or when you redeem Miles for a Lifestyle Award.
Crediting or debiting date is the date when Miles are added into or deducted from your account. Hence, the two dates (activity date vs crediting date) could be different.
The change is only on the Miles expiry rule.
Earning and redemption mechanisms remain unchanged.
Flight Awards availability will not be affected.
How to keep an account active
You can keep your Miles active by earning or redeeming them at least once every 18 months*. (Remarks: *For all new Miles earned from 1 January 2020, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last Miles crediting or debiting date. All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will continue to follow the former Miles expiry arrangement.)
There are so many ways to earn and use your Miles as you can choose from our over 800-strong network of travel and lifestyle partners. Examples:
• Earning Miles
• Redeeming Miles
• Miles expiration
• Miles top-up
• Wait list redemption application
• Points exchange
• Member transfer
• Miles renewal
• Bonus Miles
• Gift Miles*
*Only the transaction for the one who receive Gift Miles is eligible.
There isn’t a minimum amount of Miles required. So long as you earn or redeem your Miles at least once every 18 months*, your Miles will remain active. (Remarks: *For all new Miles earned from 1 January 2020, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last Miles crediting or debiting date. All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will continue to follow the former Miles expiry arrangement.)
Under the new expiry rule, starting from 1 January 2020, you will be able to keep your Asia Miles account active so long as you earn or use your Miles once every 18 months*. (Remarks: *For all new Miles earned from 1 January 2020, the Miles expiry date is automatically extended by 18 months from your last Miles crediting or debiting date. All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will continue to follow the former Miles expiry arrangement.)
We encourage you to make any transaction through earning or redeeming at your earliest convenience in order to reactivate your account. If not, your Miles will be expired.
Miles renewal is still applicable after 1 January 2020. You can renew all Miles (with service fee applies) from the time-based system. Upon renewal, the Miles will fall into the new activity-based system.
However, please note that Miles renewal is not applicable for the new activity-based system.
Miles calculation and mechanism
All Miles credited on or before 31 December 2019 will fall into the time-based system.
Miles earned on or after 1 January 2020 will fall into the new activity-based system.
Miles under the time-based system and new activity-based system will be clearly shown in your Asia Miles account and your monthly statement.
Miles cannot be reallocated from the time-based system to the activity-based system nor the other way around.
We hope to enhance members’ experience while minimising any disruption brought by the new arrangement and there will be a transitional arrangement.
There are two ways to keep track of your Miles expiry status.
One is via the monthly statement which is sent to your registered email every month.
Another way to keep track is to log into your account via asiamiles.com or Asia Miles’ mobile app.
Once you log into your account, you’ll find the Miles placed under two systems – the time-based system and the new activity-based system.
For Miles under the time-based system, an expiration date will be shown so you can keep track of the Miles’ due date.
For Miles placed under the new activity-based system, you will only find the last Miles crediting or debiting date. You can keep track of the expiration date of the Miles in the activity-based system by adding 18 months to the last crediting or debiting date.
From 1 January 2020 onwards, Miles will be deducted on a first-in-first-out basis. In other words, Miles in the time-based system will be used up first.
When all Miles in the time-based system are used up, the Miles in the new activity-based system will be deducted.
It depends on the Miles balance in the time-based system.
The Miles in the new activity-based system will only be deducted when all Miles in the former time-based system are used up.
Refunded Miles will be credited to where they are redeemed from.
