Paris, October 2nd, 2018 – Miles & More, Europe’s leading frequent flyer and awards programme, is expanding its offering to programme members in France. In cooperation with Advanzia Bank S.A., Miles & More is launching a Miles & More Gold Mastercard, adding another option for its members to earn award miles beyond flying with Miles & More partner airlines including European top carriers such as Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines. Card holders can redeem miles to book award tickets, to upgrade flights or to access numerous other benefits offered by over 300 partners worldwide.
This summer, Lufthansa Group airlines operated more than 690 weekly routes from France to 261 destinations around the world. That includes 156 European cities, including major European hub airports such as Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Zurich, as well as 105 intercontinental destinations.
“France is a key and focus market for the Lufthansa Group. Our recent flight offer developments particularly in the French regions show our continuous dedication to an increasingly dynamic and confident French economy. The introduction of the Miles & More Credit Card is great news for our customers in France, who will benefit from an even more complete and relevant offer and overall experience with the Lufthansa Group,” says Michael Gloor, Senior Director Sales France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands at Lufthansa Group.
“We constantly seek to offer new benefits that make our programme even more attractive to our members,” says Roland Adrian, Managing Director of Miles & More GmbH. “We are convinced that launching our Miles & More credit card in France will increase the programme’s relevance in our members’ daily life and allows them to achieve their desired awards even quicker.”
“We are delighted to cooperate with Advanzia Bank, a customer-focused European online direct bank”, adds Bernd Wendeln, Director Financial Partnerships of Miles & More GmbH.
The offer to existing and new Miles & More members encompasses a Miles & More Gold Mastercard to earn one award mile for every two euro spent. Furthermore, the Gold card offers extra benefits at Miles & More and Lufthansa, such as lounge access, a comprehensive insurance package and unlimited mileage protection.
“We are proud to partner with Miles & More and offer their members extra value with our Miles & More Gold Mastercard – one of the world’s most accepted credit cards. Miles & More members will be able to pay by card worldwide, earn award miles whilst shopping, and benefit from the comprehensive travel insurance package that is included in the card,” says Roland Ludwig, CEO of Advanzia Bank. With this new partnership, Advanzia continues to expand its European footprint in offering best-in-class solutions to more than 140 business partners throughout Europe.
The Miles & More programme is easy to handle and continues to add incentives for earning and redeeming award miles. Members of the Miles & More programme earn and redeem miles when flying with Lufthansa and other airlines of the Star Alliance, or with more than 270 non-air partners affiliated with Miles & More. By launching the Miles & More Gold Mastercard in France, Miles & More GmbH is expanding its global visibility to a total of 24 countries. Worldwide, over 1.4 million members are earning award miles with Miles & More’s co-branded credit cards.
“We are proud at Mastercard to support the launch of the Miles & More co-branded card programme in France to address travellers’ needs. The Miles & More Gold Mastercard provides flexibility, convenience and extra benefits to members of the programme”, says Solveig Honoré Hatton, General Manager Mastercard France.
