Check the frequent flyer agreements in Amadeus: Frequent flyer agreements are agreements between airlines that allow their frequent flyer programs to be linked. These agreements enable members of one airline’s frequent flyer program to earn and redeem miles or points on flights with another airline that is part of the agreement.
Frequent flyer agreements can be bilateral, meaning they involve only two airlines, or multilateral, meaning they involve multiple airlines. These agreements are typically established to provide customers with greater travel options and flexibility, as well as to increase customer loyalty to the participating airlines.
Examples of frequent flyer agreements include the Star Alliance, which includes airlines such as United, Lufthansa, and Air Canada, and the oneworld alliance, which includes airlines such as American Airlines, British Airways, and Cathay Pacific. These agreements allow members of each airline’s frequent flyer program to earn and redeem miles or points on flights with any of the participating airlines.

In order to access each other’s frequent flyer programs, several airlines have bilateral agreements in place. This implies that customers can accrue points or miles and use them to book rewards with airlines other than the ones that issued their credit cards. For instance, when traveling on Delta Airlines, a traveler may collect miles on an Air France card.
