What is Flight Mileage?

Flight mileage is automatically credited to your JMB account when you travel on eligible flights. In order to accrue miles, your JMB membership number must be provided when making the reservation or at check-in. Additionally, all tickets must be issued in the JMB member's name. Flight mileage is based on the sector mileage specified for the sector(s) traveled and on the accumulation rate for the fare of the purchased ticket.

Flight Mileage = Sector Mileage × Accumulation Rate

  • *Some situations are not eligible for mileage accrual. Learn more
  • *JMB sector mileage is calculated based on IATA TPM (International Air Transport Association Ticketed Point Mileage).
    Revision of mileage will be made in July and January of next year based on the IATA TPM released in spring and autumn previous year.
