Aeroflot is one of the world’s oldest airlines. With a history dating back to 1923, the Russian flag carrier is in the rare company of airlines founded before the Great Depression, along with airlines like KLM, Avianca, Qantas, and Czech Airlines.

Russia is the largest country in the world by far, with nearly 7 million square miles of land within its borders. And Russia is one of the world’s most attractive tourist destinations for its rich heritage, large list of UNESCO World Heritage sites, and vastness.

One of the only ways to fly into Russia is with its flag carrier Aeroflot. Aeroflot joined SkyTeam in April of 2006, and since then has contributed a key artery connecting the rest of the world to Russia.

Today, Aeroflot and its subsidiaries control around 40% of the air market in Russia. Aeroflot’s frequent flyer program is called Aeroflot Bonus, and the miles you earn within the program can be referred to as Aeroflot Bonus miles or simply Aeroflot miles.

In this guide, we’ll be walking you through all of the neat ways you can earn Aeroflot miles. You’ll find that it’s easier to earn Aeroflot miles than to fly on Aeroflot to Russia all the time.

Let’s get started!

Earn Aeroflot Bonus Miles With Credit Cards

Credit cards

Unfortunately, Aeroflot Bonus doesn’t have any U.S. co-branded relationships or transfer partnerships with any U.S.-based credit cards and their associated card issuers.

Sadly, this means that the opportunities to earn Aeroflot miles from credit cards in the U.S. will be nonexistent. In this sense, it’ll be harder to accumulate miles compared to airlines like Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles, and Avianca LifeMiles.

Non-U.S. Based Credit Cards

Since Aeroflot is a Russian-based airline, its co-branded credit card offerings are pretty much all going to be from Russia. But if you happen to have access to Russian rewards credit cards, you’ll be pleased to find out that quite a few banks are offering co-branded Aeroflot credit cards.

Interestingly, you can also earn Aeroflot miles with debit card spending, as well as through balances associated with your bank account!

  • Aeroflot-Citibank credit card
  • Aeroflot-Citibank Premium Visa credit card
  • Aeroflot-Citibank Visa credit card
  • Aeroflot-Citibank Visa Infinite credit card
  • Alfa-Bank Aeroflot credit card
  • Alfa-Bank Aeroflot MasterCard World Black Edition debit card
  • Alfa-Bank Aeroflot Standard debit card
  • Alfa-Bank Aeroflot World Black Edition debit card
  • Citi Priority Aeroflot debit card
  • CitiOne+ Aeroflot debit card
  • Sberbank Visa Classic Aeroflot Card
  • Sberbank Visa Gold Aeroflot card
  • Sberbank Visa Signature card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Black Edition card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Classic card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Gold card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Optima card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Platinum card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Premium card
  • SMP Bank Aeroflot-Mir Standard card

Bottom Line: In all, there are 20 co-branded opportunities to earn miles. Some of the cards listed above are credit cards, while the others are debit cards. This means that you can potentially earn Aeroflot miles just by having money in your bank account!

Earn Miles Through Shopping

One of the easiest ways to earn miles, in general, is with regular daily activities without butt-in-seat flying!

And one of the biggest subsets of this is shopping. Most of us have to purchase goods every so often, whether it’s clothing or household goods.

Aeroflot Bonus is partners with many shopping partners in its network, so let’s get into all the ways you can earn miles through shopping. Most of the earning methods will be limited to within Russia, so just keep that in mind.

Each of these partner companies has individual terms and conditions that apply to each transaction you make. For example, Aeroflot Bonus miles are only available to new Skyeng students, and you cannot earn miles on each recurring purchase.

Earn Miles Through Travel

If you don’t have access to these merchants in Russia or Europe, then one of the best ways to earn Aeroflot miles is through travel.

And you can earn Aeroflot miles through so much more than just Aeroflot flights. For example, if you do a lot of domestic U.S. travel, you probably won’t be flying on an Aeroflot plane anytime soon. Luckily, you can still earn Aeroflot Bonus miles on Delta Air Lines flights, for example.

We’ll also walk you through all the different travel partners that Aeroflot has to maximize your accrual!

Airfare and Airline Purchases

The first way to earn Aeroflot miles is by flying on Aeroflot planes, as well as any subsidiaries, including Rossiya Airlines.

Aeroflot has adopted a unique mileage accrual system. Instead of being based on the booking code, your mileage accrual will depend on the first 2 letters of the fare rate code.

This is unnecessarily complex because it effectively introduces more divisions of the booking code, the most commonly used determinant for mileage accrual.

Here is the accrual chart for Aeroflot and its 2 subsidiary airlines, Aurora Airlines and Rossiya Airlines:

More than 50% discount faresN/A0%

The most obvious question that comes up from this is: how do I find out the first 2 letters of the fare rate code (the fare rate code prefix)?

The answer is to use the Google ITA Matrix.

Aeroflot Google ITA Matrix flight

As you can see in the example above, the fare prefix is DB, which means you will earn 150% of the flight distance in Aeroflot miles. The flight distance is 6,078 miles, so you will earn 9,117 redeemable miles.

You can also use Aeroflot’s earn miles calculator, but it doesn’t have all Aeroflot routes, so you might be out of luck in some cases. Another way to find out the fare rate prefix of your Aeroflot flight is to search directly on Aeroflot’s website. A bonus is that you will see how many miles you’d earn on your particular flight.

In general, your miles will be posted to your flight within 10 business days or completing your travel. If you don’t see your miles post, you can submit a retroactive claim up to 3 months after your flight has completed.

Crediting SkyTeam Alliance Airlines to Aeroflot Bonus

Aeroflot is one of the many airlines within the SkyTeam alliance. As a result, you can earn Aeroflot miles on many flights with airlines like Korean Air, KLM, Delta Air Lines, Aeromexico, and more!

Hot Tip: You’ll earn a minimum of 500 Aeroflot miles per eligible SkyTeam flight, even if your flight distance is less than 500 miles.

Here is the complete Aeroflot Bonus earning chart for every SkyTeam airline:

China Southern is a former SkyTeam alliance partner. However, Asia’s largest airline left the global alliance in 2019 in favor of maintaining global connectivity via individual partnerships.

Luckily, China Southern is still partners with many SkyTeam airlines, including Aeroflot. Therefore, you can earn Aeroflot Bonus miles on China Southern flights as per the following accrual chart:
