Japan Airlines

Our partnership with Japan Airlines

Japan Airlines connects you to more than 80 destinations in 20 countries from its hubs in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Okinawa. When you fly on Japan Airlines, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles, plus, enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage® status.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on Japan Airlines marketed and operated flights and Japan Airlines codeshare flights operated by Japan Airlines affiliate airlines J-Air or Japan Transocean Air, or other oneworld® carriers.

Here's how:

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

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket.

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