One of the cheapest ways to travel from the US to Europe is on the leisure airline Condor, which has been quite busy with recent upgrades to its planes and services. Although Condor doesn’t have a frequent flyer program of its own, the carrier’s partnership with Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan allows members to earn miles for Condor flights.
The number of Alaska Airlines miles earned for Condor flights is based on the flight distance and a class-of-service multiplier. We’ll explain how to add Mileage Plan information to Condor flights, how to tell which flights are eligible to earn miles, and how many miles are earned in each class of service.
How can I tell if my Condor flights are eligible to earn Alaska Airlines miles?
To be eligible to earn Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles, Condor flight numbers must be between 0001 and 2299. In addition, the flight has to be marketed and operated by Condor, meaning that the flight number must begin with DE. You can find flight numbers on your ticket or boarding pass.
How many Alaska Airlines miles do Condor flights earn?
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan earning rates for Condor flights are based on flight distance and a class of service multiplier. Business class flights earn 300% of miles flown, Premium Economy earns 125%, Economy Flex earns 100%, Economy earns 75%, and deep-discount and promotional Economy fares earn 50%.

Condor is not a Miles and More member but does have a partnership with Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan that allows members to earn miles for Condor flights.
Condor is no longer owned by Lufthansa.
The iconic German airline, one of the original founders of Condor, sold its last shares to the Thomas Cook Group in the early 2000s. In 2019, the Thomas Cook Group collapsed but Condor was bailed out with a loan from the German government. The majority of Condor is now owned by a private investment group.
In addition to being part of Alaska’s Mileage Plan loyalty program, Condor’s partnership with Alaska Airlines allows it to provide service to Europe from more US cities. We’ve got more information on Condor’s partner airlines here.
Like Condor’s agreement with Alaska Airlines, its partnership with jetBlue allows the German leisure carrier to offer flights to Europe from additional US cities.
