Aer Lingus

Update to earning on flights

Starting July 11, 2024, we’re updating the way you earn AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points on flights depending on where you book. Learn which flights earn miles and Loyalty Points and which do not.

Our partnership with Aer Lingus

Aer Lingus is the Irish flag carrier, founded in 1936. It operates flights from Dublin, Cork, Shannon, Manchester and Knock to Europe, the United Kingdom, North America and the Caribbean.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on Aer Lingus marketed and operated flights and Aer Lingus codeshare flights operated by American Airlines. Flights operated by Aer Lingus affiliate airline Emerald will also be eligible to earn AAdvantage® miles.

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

When you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles for travel on Aer Lingus, you’ll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward AAdvantage® status.

Calculating miles based on ticket price

For travel on Aer Lingus marketed and operated flights, miles are earned based on ticket price (includes base fare plus carrier-imposed fees; excludes government-imposed taxes and fees). The more you spend, and the higher your AAdvantage® status, the more you'll earn.

  • AAdvantage® member – 5 miles for every U.S. dollar
  • AAdvantage Gold® member – 40% bonus
  • AAdvantage Platinum® member – 60% bonus
  • AAdvantage Platinum Pro® member – 80% bonus
  • AAdvantage Executive Platinum® member – 120% bonus
For travel on or after December 5, 2023 This content can be expanded

If the booking code for the ticket you buy isn’t listed in the tables, you won’t earn AAdvantage® miles or Loyalty Points.

Travel ticketed as an American Airlines marketed flight (having a flight number beginning with 'AA') and operated by Aer Lingus will earn AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points according to the American mileage accrual chart.
