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.

  • Some situations are not eligible for mileage accrual.

Sector Mileage

JMB sector mileage is calculated based on IATA TPM (International Air Transport Association Ticketed Point Mileage).

  • Revision of mileage will be made twice a year; in July based on the IATA TPM released in spring and in January based on the IATA TPM released in autumn of the previous year.
