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.
Which Airlines Can You Earn Enrich Miles on?
There are essentially 6 different Airline categories that you can earn Enrich Miles with:
- Malaysia Airlines
- Malaysia Airlines Subsidiaries
- Oneworld Airlines
- Oneworld Airline Affiliates
- Partner Airlines
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 – 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
You can find the subsidiary earning rates here:
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:
- American Airlines
- British Airways
- Cathay Pacific
- Japan Airlines
- Qatar Airways
- Royal Jordanian
- S7 Airlines
- Sri Lankan Airlines
All of the Oneworld Airlines offer different earning rates as some are more generous than others, please check out the earning rates via the link below for 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:
|American Airlines||American Eagle® 2|
|British Airways||BA Cityflyer, British Airways (BA) Limited, Comair 3 , OpenSkies and SUN-AIR of Scandinavia 3|
|Cathay Pacific||Cathay Dragon|
|Finnair||Nordic Regional Airlines 4|
|Iberia||Iberia Regional Air Nostrum, Iberia Express|
|Japan Airlines||J-AIR and Japan Transocean Air|
|LATAM||LATAM Airlines Argentina, LATAM Airlines Brazil, LATAM Airlines Colombia, LATAM Airlines Ecuador, LATAM Airlines Express, LATAM Airlines Peru (Note: LATAM Airlines Paraguay is due to join oneworld later.)|
|Malaysia Airlines||No affiliates|
|Qantas||QantasLink 5 and Jetconnect|
|Qatar Airways||No affiliates|
|Royal Jordanian||No affiliates|
|S7 Airlines||Globus, LLC|
|SriLankan Airlines||No affiliates|
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
- Jet Airways
- Jet Konnect (subsidiary of Jet Airways)
- 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 within the following series MH4000/5000/7000/9000 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 – but it’ll depend on the fare class rates on the Malaysia Airlines earning table:
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.

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!
