Turkish Airlines Status Match
« on: May 18, 2012, 07:11:57 AM »
Turkish Airlines is currently offering a status match from other airlines.

If you're a Silver-level cardholder, you'll be matched to Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles Classic Plus level, which is Star Alliance Silver.
Gold-level cardholders will be matched to Miles&Smiles Elite, which is Star Alliance Gold.

Status is valid for 2 years from date of status match.

In order to get the match, Sign up for a Turkish Airlines M&S Account here.


Then email Turkish Airlines, customermiles@thy.com. including a scanned copy of your existing frequent flyer card and your most recent account statement.

What's also really great is their re qualification requirements,
In order to re-qualify for Classic Plus membership (*S), a Classic card holder needs to collect 17.000 Status Miles either within the first year or 35.000 Status Miles within 2 years of the Classic Plus membership.

In order to re-qualify for Elite membership (*G) members residing out of Turkey need to collect 25.000 Status Miles either within the first year or 37.500 Status Miles within 2 years of the Elite membership. Otherwise, the membership status will be renewed as "Classic Plus".

Here you can see all the accrual rates for their partners.

Please be informed that only Star Alliance Gold , Skyteam Elite Plus and Oneworld Emerald members have an opportunity for Status Match. 
Not silver members...

I am United Gold, will they status match me?  Also I have had barely any activity this year, poised to lose my gold..

Do I need to add some activity or is that irrelevant? Thanks
