Asiana Airlines is one of South Korea’s 2 major airlines, along with Korean Air.
The airline’s loyalty program, Asiana Club, offers the ability to earn and redeem miles on Asiana or its partners
While it’s not the largest or most well-known airline, it is a member of the Star Alliance, which means Asiana miles can be quite useful. Plus, Asiana Club offers some pretty unique sweet spots in its award chart.
Asiana miles aren’t the easiest to accumulate, but there are a number of ways you can boost your balance.
In this post, we’ll walk through how you can maximize earning Asiana miles.
Asiana Airlines requires you to sign up for an Asiana Club account to earn and redeem miles or transfer points from a credit card program into its frequent flyer program. The process is straightforward and only requires you to sign up for a new account.
Hot Tip: It’s important to keep track of your Asiana Club username, password, and account number, as you’ll need this information to log in to your account.
Marriott Bonvoy is the only transferrable rewards currency that partners with Asiana Club. One of the best and quickest ways to earn Asiana miles is through Marriott credit card welcome bonuses.
You can earn Marriott Bonvoy points and transfer those to Asiana at a transfer rate of 3:1. Plus, for every 60,000 Marriott points that you transfer, you’ll receive an extra 5,000 Asiana miles bonus. So, for every 60,000-point batch of Marriott Bonvoy points that you transfer to Asiana, you’ll receive 25,000 Asiana miles.
There are a number of Marriott Bonvoy cards that offer sizable welcome bonuses, which you can see below:

Michael first caught wind of the points and miles game in 2014 while at a bar in Washington, DC where the conversation amongst friends was quickly derailed because of an alert on a friend’s phone about a mistake fare. That’s where the love affair with points and miles began.
