Note: As a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, Aeroflot is currently experiencing many restrictions on airspace and may temporarily suspend flights.

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!

Sign Up for an Aeroflot Bonus Account

The number 1 priority before we do anything else should be to create an Aeroflot Bonus account. Luckily, this is very easy and straightforward.

Just follow these step-by-step instructions to create your account:

  1. Visit the Join Aeroflot Bonus page.
  2. Enter your email address, your full name, your date of birth, and your phone number.
  3. Complete the CAPTCHA and check off the box that says I agree to Aeroflot Bonus program Terms and Conditions and personal data consent form.
  4. You will be sent a confirmation code to your cellular number. Enter the confirmation code.
  5. You’ll then be sent an email with a link to activate your Aeroflot Bonus account. Open your email and click on the link within the email.
  6. You should now see a message that says Your e-mail is confirmed. You can now log in.
  7. Click Sign In.
  8. Your Aeroflot Bonus number will automatically be filled into the Login field. Write down this number for all future Aeroflot Bonus activity. You’ll also receive a welcome email with your e-membership card in the email.

As soon as you record your Aeroflot Bonus number, you are officially ready to earn Aeroflot Bonus miles!

Earn Aeroflot Bonus Miles With 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.

1. 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, including Alfa Bank, Gazprombank, Sberbank, and SMP Bank.

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

Bottom Line: In all, there are ~20 co-branded opportunities to earn miles, including credit cards and debit cards. This means that you can potentially earn Aeroflot miles just by having money in your bank account!

Earn Miles Through Travel

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!

2. 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.

3. Crediting Partner Airlines to Aeroflot Bonus

Crediting SkyTeam Alliance Airlines to Aeroflot Bonus

Update: Note that Aeroflot has been temporarily suspended from SkyTeam due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, so the option to credit SkyTeam flights to Aeroflot is also suspended.

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!

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:

Crediting Non-alliance Partner Airlines to Aeroflot Bonus

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:

4. Boost Your Miles with Elite Status

Earning Aeroflot miles could potentially be a lot easier because you can get a bonus of up to 75% in some cases. Aeroflot Bonus has 4 key elite status tiers:

  • Platinum Aeroflot Bonus — 75%
  • Gold Aeroflot Bonus — 50%
  • Silver Aeroflot Bonus — 25%
  • Basic Aeroflot Bonus — 0%

You will also earn bonus redeemable Aeroflot miles for all partner flights, so you’re not restricted to only Aeroflot flight accruals.

However, you will not earn an elite bonus for any elite qualifying miles or segments.

5. Car Rental and Transportation Partners

Aeroflot offers a generous list of car rental and transportation partners.

From renowned worldwide enterprises to more local Russian transportation partners, you’ll be able to earn lots of Aeroflot miles very quickly using this method.

You can even earn miles for booking chauffeur transfers (with SIXT), so your car rental and transportation needs can be taken care of and you can reward yourself with Aeroflot miles at the same time.

Final Thoughts

All in all, Aeroflot has a diverse partner list you can earn miles from. The Russian state-owned airline has one of the most thorough lists of airline partners so that you can earn miles on virtually any type of purchase you can think of.

Most of these partners are limited to Russian companies or at least Russian branches of these companies, so the U.S. opportunities won’t be as plentiful.

Still, if you have access to Russian credit cards, Russian restaurants, and perhaps even Russian merchandise companies, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to earn miles. You can even earn miles taking out new insurance policies or buying an apartment!

We hope that you have found this guide to help learn about all the different ways to earn Aeroflot miles. Now, you’re ready to redeem those miles for maximum value!
