Dear Valdis,

Welcome to Miles&Smiles Turkish Airlines' advantageous Frequent Flyer Program. Elite card trial period will be valid for 4 months. As of start date of elite membership within 4 months trial period one international Turkish Airlines flight should be realized for extending your card validity date to 1 year, if 15.000 status miles accumulated from Turkish Airlines international flights at the end of the first year elite membership will extend 1 year more and the total validity date will be 2 years. There is an oppotunity to earn extra %50 status miles from your first business class flight in the trial period.

Elite card membership grants you access to CIP lounges on all domestic and international flights as well as a 50 percent discount for companion tickets on Business Class trips. You will also earn more Status Miles on Business class flights. You can now enjoy a 20 kg extra luggage allowance as well as check-in at the Business Class counter for domestic and international flights. Your Elite card enjoys the same status as the Gold Card used on other Star Alliance member flights. As such, it provides a myriad of advantages both on international Turkish Airlines flights and Star Alliance member flights. As you fly to any global destination, you will receive priority on reservation and airline waiting lists, on luggage delivery, check-in and boarding; you will also be able to use the CIP lounge.
