Royal Orchid Plus

Royal Orchid Plus is Thai Air’s frequent flier program, allowing passengers to earn air miles each time they fly which can then be used to gain benefits on Thai Air and partner airlines. Once signed up, all a passenger needs to do is show their Royal Orchid Plus card when they check in to gain their miles.

Passengers can gain two types of miles: Eligible Qualifying Miles (EQM) – these determine the level of the programme a passenger has, and which Star Alliance tier they occupy. 10,000 EQM miles a year must be accumulated to earn Silver status; 50,000 EQM miles per year will earn Gold status. Additional Qualifying miles (Q Miles) are based on the miles flown and paid class of travel. Partner Miles – based on non-airlines partners, such as hotels and tours.
