Malaysia Airlines is the flag carrier of its namesake country and is headquartered in its capital city of Kuala Lumpur.

The airline — with its primary hub in Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and secondary hubs in Kota Kinabalu (BKI) and Kuching (KCG) — has been rated several times as a leading airline in Asia and even throughout the world. However, it has struggled in recent years to compete with low-cost carriers that have become so prevalent in Southeast Asia.

Regardless, Malaysia Airlines has plenty going for it, including a respectable long-haul route network to/from Kuala Lumpur and even a rare “business suites” product situated above its standard business class offering.

Malaysia Airlines is a member of the Oneworld alliance, and while its Enrich loyalty program may not be as well-known to U.S.-based flyers, it can be a great option for booking Oneworld flights, including those on American Airlines, British Airways, Qantas, and more.

In this guide, we’ll examine the numerous ways through which you can accumulate lots of Malaysia Airlines Enrich points. Let’s get started!

Sign Up for a Malaysia Airlines Enrich Account

Malaysia Airlines’ frequent flyer program is known as Enrich. Each unit of currency you earn and redeem within the program is known as an Enrich point.

To the surprise of many, Malaysia Airlines has a user-friendly website with an excellent design — simply follow these steps to create an account:

  1. Visit Malaysia Airlines’ homepage.
  2. In the top-right corner, you’ll see a button that says Log In/Sign Up. Click that, then click Enrich.
  3. On the redirected page, click Create a new Enrich account now!
  4. Verify your email address to complete your registration.
  5. Fill out the form and write down your Enrich number. You may also log in using your email address, but your Enrich number will be required for any partner mileage accrual.

Make sure to keep your login details somewhere handy, as you’ll need them any time you want to earn Enrich points or redeem them for flights or upgrades.

1. Transfer Malaysian Airlines Enrich Points From Financial Partners

It’s harder for those who live outside of Southeast Asia to earn Enrich points through credit card spending than in other programs like Avianca LifeMiles or Flying Blue miles. Let’s take a look at the best way to do so for non-U.S. residents.

The Malaysia-based co-branded credit cards have been discontinued, but you have the opportunity to leverage transfer partnerships from foreign transferable currencies.

There are several Malaysia-based issuers whose rewards transfer to the program:

  • Affin Bank/Affin Islamic Bank
  • Alliance Bank
  • AmBank
  • American Express
  • Bank Islam
  • BSN
  • CIMB Bank
  • Danamon Bank
  • Hong Leong Bank
  • Maybank
  • Public Bank
  • RHB Bank
  • St. George
  • Standard Chartered
  • United Overseas Bank (UOB)
  • Westpac

While all of the above issuers may have operations outside Malaysia, eligibility to participate in transfers to the Enrich program applies only to Malaysian residents, except Westpac, which is also accessible to Australian residents.

To see details on each program, visit the Earn Miles page and click Financial Services.

2. Airfare and Airline Purchases

One of the easiest ways to earn Malaysia Airlines Enrich points is by booking paid airfare on Malaysia Airlines.

Your earnings on a given flight will be determined by the ticket price and the level of elite status you hold, which means it’s a revenue-based earning model.

C, D130%
Z110%
Economy ClassY, B, H100%
K, M, L, V75%
S, N50%
Q, O, G25%

As an entry-level Enrich Blue member, you earn 120 points for every RM100 (~$24) you spend on a Malaysian Airlines ticket.

For example, if you book a $1,000 business class ticket (~RM4,170) in the “Z” fare class, you’ll earn a total of 5,504 Enrich points. You’ll earn 5,004 points from being a Blue member and another 500 points from booking a Z class ticket with a 10% bonus (110% overall).

Similarly, if you book a $100 economy class ticket (~RM417) in the “G” fare class, you’ll earn 125 Enrich points (500 points multiplied by 25%).

3. Crediting Partner Airlines to Malaysia Airlines Enrich

Malaysia Airlines is a Oneworld alliance member, which means you can easily earn Enrich points from virtually any Oneworld flight you take, including domestic flights with American Airlines, for example.

In addition, you can also redeem Enrich points for Oneworld flights, like Cathay Pacific business class or British Airways economy class.

However, the point-accrual structure for each partner varies tremendously. Here’s the breakdown of earnings by partner:

As an example, if you book a Z-class ticket in business class on LATAM from New York (JFK) to Santiago (SCL), you’ll earn 5,097 Enrich points, which is equal to 100% of the distance flown on the journey.

4. Earn More Points With Elite Status

Another excellent way to supplement your Malaysia Airlines balance is to leverage elite status.

If you have Malaysia Airlines Enrich status, you’ll earn a tier bonus on all Malaysia Airlines, MASwings, and codeshare flights marketed by Malaysia Airlines. Note that this does not apply to any Oneworld partner flights or mixed-carrier flights.

The breakdown based on tier and amount spent is as follows:

  • Enrich Platinum: 2.2 Enrich points
  • Enrich Gold: 2 Enrich points
  • Enrich Silver: 1.6 Enrich points
  • Enrich Blue: 1.5 Enrich points

The example Malaysia Airlines provides is that if you are Blue member and spend RM100, you will earn 150 Enrich points.

5. Hotel Partners

6. Transfer From Hotel Loyalty Programs

You can contact Malaysia Airlines 24/7 at +603-2263-5777.

How do you claim MAS Enrich points?

You can earn Enrich points by providing your Malaysia Airlines Enrich account number anytime you’re making a qualifying purchase.

Your points should post to your account shortly after completing any qualifying activity.

What can I use my Enrich points for?

The best way to use Enrich points is for Malaysia Airlines flights or upgrades. In some cases, it makes sense to book a Oneworld partner airline flight, though it’ll generally cost more points.

How do I get to Enrich Silver?

Enrich silver status can be achieved by earning enough Elite Points. To qualify for Elite Silver, you need 30 Elite Points.

Elite-Point earnings are determined by the flight zone and the cabin class.

How long do Enrich points last?

Enrich points normally last for 3 years and expire at the end of the 36th month after they were earned.

The only way to extend the expiration is to pay a fee. You can pay RM0.02 (<$0.01) per mile plus an RM40 (~$10) fee to extend up to 12 months (depending on how close you were to the expiration date).

Can I transfer my Enrich points?

You can share your Enrich points with your family or friends (up to 50,000 points per year) by paying a fee of RM0.04 (<$0.01) per mile and a fee of RM40 (~$10).

You have to call Malaysia Airlines or visit the nearest ticketing office to do this.
