Malaysian Airlines and Emirates partner airlines


Blog reader @kennethlimphoto question; Can you accrue and redeem miles on Emirates or Malaysian Airlines even though they are not part of any global alliances?

Yes, you can!

Malaysian Airlines is set to join OneWorld sometime in 2012. On-going rumors only for Emirates, nothing officially annouced. Until then, here are links to the partner airlines.

 Malaysian Airlines partners:

  • Air France
  • Alitalia
  • ANA
  • Delta
  • Etihad
  • Jet Airways
  • KLM
  • Mas Wings
  • Sri Lankan
  • Virgin Atlantic
  • Virgin Australia

Emirates partners:

  • Alaska Airlines
  • Jet Airways
  • Japan Airlines
  • Korean Air
  • South African Airways

You’ll need to go to each carrier’s web site to see the earning and redemption requirements, but just because an airline isn’t part of an alliance, doesn’t mean you can accumulate miles by flying with them.
