Which Airlines Can You Earn Enrich Miles on?

This was a very difficult post to research as Malaysia Airlines Enrich programme is not straightforward for trying to find out who you can actually earn with!  So I’m keen if you have any information beyond what I provide here to get in touch using the comments below.

MH EnrichThere are essentially 6 different Airline categories that you can earn Enrich Miles with:

  1. Malaysia Airlines
  2. Malaysia Airlines Subsidiaries
  3. Oneworld Airlines
  4. Oneworld Airline Affiliates
  5. Partner Airlines
  6. Codeshares

Note that I’m only covering which airlines you can earn Enrich Miles with,  not airlines that you can earn Enrich Elite Miles on in this post – that’s a whole different story!

Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines – as you might expect you will earn Enrich Miles through flying with Malaysia Airlines itself, and you will usually get higher earning rates that if you fly with any other airline – this is especially the case for discounted tickets.  Enrich Miles earned will be based on actual air distance flown or in percentage according to the qualifying fare (TIP – you can get the distance displayed if you click the flight number when booking).  You can find out more on Malaysia Airlines earning rates here.

Malaysia Airlines Subsidiaries

You can now also earn with MAS Wings (Domestic and International) and in addition with subsidiary Firefly (great if you fly domestic).

  • MAS Wings
  • Firefly
  • Golden Holidays (I assume this is the case if a flight is booked)

You can find the subsidiary earning rates here.

Oneworld Airlines

Since joining the Oneworld Alliance in 2013 Enrich members have been able to earn on flights with the other Oneworld Airlines.  This is the list:

  • Airberlin
  • American Airlines
  • British Airways
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Finnair
  • Iberia
  • Japan Airlines
  • LAN
  • Qantas
  • Qatar Airways
  • Royal Jordanian
  • S7 Airlines

All of the Oneworld Airlines offer different earning rates as some are more generous than others, please check out the earning rates here for full details.

Oneworld Airline Affiliates

This is where it gets tricky!  You should also be able to earn Enrich Miles with Oneworld affiliate airlines as well.  This is the full list of affiliates for Oneworld Airlines:

airberlin^ NIKI
American Airlines AmericanConnectionSM* and American Eagle®**

^airberlin flights may be operated by TUIfly, LGW Walter or Belair using the airberlin name, livery and flight code.
*AmericanConnection flights are operated by Chautauqua Airlines Inc.
**American Eagle includes flights operated by American Eagle, Express Jet, Republic Airlines and SkyWest Airlines.
^^Independently operated franchise carriers using the British Airways name, livery and flight code.
^^^Only on routes operated by Flybe Finland on behalf of Finnair.
#QantasLink uses the services of Airlink, Eastern Australia Airlines, National Jet Systems and Sunstate Airlines.

There is very little information on what you will actually earn on, but I would suggest that if the main Oneworld partner e.g. British Airways has a code for the affiliate flight then you will probably earn Enrich Miles – I stand to be correct so let me know.

Malaysia Airlines Partner Airlines

Malaysia Airlines has quite an extensive network of partners that you can earn Enrich Miles with.  In particular it includes a few non airline alliance airlines such as Jet Airways and Etihad that you can earn on which is a definite bonus and may save you from those annoying orphan miles.

  • Air France
  • Alitalia
  • Delta
  • Jet Airways
  • Jet Konnect (subsidiary of Jet Airways)
  • KLM
  • Sri Lankan Airlines
  • Virgin Atlantic
  • Etihad Airways

Earning rates for these airlines can be found here.

Malaysia Airlines Codeshares

The final category is with Malaysia Airlines codeshares. You may be wondering what a codeshare actually is?  Well you’ve probably seen it at an airport where the same flight has multiple flight numbers for multiple airlines.  This is where two or more airlines share the same flight and the flight will be operated by one airline such as Singapore Airlines but it could have a MH flight number or a flight number from a different airline.  Primarily it enables an airline to expand its network and sales opportunities without needing additional aircraft.

Malaysia Airlines have literally dozens of codeshares, but they are usually given a flight number between MH9000 and MH9999 to distinguish them from other flights.  A list of codeshares partners can be found here.  You should earn your usual Malaysia Airlines earning rates for these flights even if they are operated by another airline.

You’ll notice some of the codeshares are with Oneworld Airlines, so if you are booking them if you want to earn more Enrich Miles then it’s probably best to book through Malaysia Airlines rather than the Oneworld Airline.

Conclusion

As you can see there are numerous ways to earn Enrich Miles with Malaysia Airlines.  There are some good opportunities in my opinion to avoid getting orphan miles and points by using your Enrich Card to collect with the airlines listed above.I have however read a lot of complaints on earning Enrich Miles from partners, Oneworld members and codeshares so be persistent with Enrich to get them credited.  I’m sure I have probably missed some information so please let me know by commenting below!
