• Details about the JGC Life Mileage program, which were previously announced only to qualifying customers, are provided on this page to promote wider access.

The program is based on all flight activity *1 recorded with fares eligible for earning miles since enrolling with JAL Mileage Bank (JMB).  JGC members who reach certain milestones in lifetime flight activity will also receive special baggage tags as a gift to mark each significant achievement.

Additionally, JGC members who have flown 1 million miles *2 will receive JGC Five Star status with corresponding benefits and services.

We look forward to continuing to serve you in the years to come.

  • Please note that members who withdraw from JGC will be ineligible to receive these services.
  1. Flight activity as of April 30 of each year, based on the number of international sector miles flown or number of domestic flights traveled with fares eligible for earning miles since enrolling with JMB.

  2. JGC members who have either flown 1 million international sector miles or 1,250 domestic flights as of April 30 of each respective year.

Achieving milestones in lifetime flight activity

What is lifetime flight activity?

Lifetime flight activity refers to the total number of JAL international sector miles you have flown or the total number of JAL Group domestic flights you have traveled with fares eligible for earning miles since enrolling in JMB. JGC members who achieve the milestones for JAL international flights or JAL Group domestic flights will be eligible to receive JGC Life Mileage benefits and services.

  • Lifetime flight activity is based on flight activity recorded from April 1980.
  • Total number of JAL international sector miles flown is calculated by adding together all sector miles traveled, without applying any mileage accumulation rate.
  • International and domestic flight activity cannot be combined to calculate total sector miles or total number of flights traveled.
  • Customers who achieve the milestones for both JAL international flights and JAL Group domestic flights in the same year will receive the gift for the higher milestone achieved. Additionally, customers who achieve the equivalent milestone for JAL international or JAL Group domestic flights in a different year will receive the relevant gift once only.

Delivery schedule

Gifts, services, benefits, and the associated information will be sent around autumn to qualifying customers, based on milestones achieved as of April 30 of each respective year.
