Austrian Airlines, a subsidiary of Lufthansa, offers its passengers the Miles & More program as it does in Lufthansa as a loyalty program. If you want to be a Miles & More member, you can register at the airline's website. Mileage accrual applies not only to Austria Airlines flights but also to other Star Alliance member airlines.

Europe's leading frequent flyer program offers numerous advantages

Miles & More is considered to be the most widely used frequenting program in Europe. The reason for this lies in the numerous advantages that one has by membership. Overall, the program offers four categories that lead to membership. These include Miles-and-More participants, Frequent Traveler, Senator and Hon-Circle members. The special feature of the program is that you as a Hon-Circle member must collect a total of 600,000 miles in two consecutive calendar years. As a standard member of Miles and More, you only have to collect a flight mile to become a member.
