  • Mileage usage and restrictions:
    1. Limited to redeeming award tickets or seat upgrades on EVA Air/UNI Air international flights only.

      (Note1) No matter award seat has been confirmed or not, Award Ticket should be issued while mileage is still valid before ticket deadline.
      (Note 2) The system will automatically deduct miles valid until departure date from your account once you book a confirmed seat.

    2. The purchase miles used in the redemption cannot exceed half (50%) of the total mileage required for that redemption.
    3. The purchase miles cannot be used in the qualification for membership renewals or upgrades, or used together with the mileage transferred from others.
    4. The purchase miles cannot be sold to others.
    5. Mileage expiring first in your account will be deducted first when deducting the mileage.
  • Mileage price: 1,000 miles =USD40. Please purchase the mileage in multiples of 1,000 miles.
  • Methods of purchase and payment:
  • Members can only purchase miles through payment via the EVA Air website. Currently the payment can be made only in USD or TWD.
    1. The payment can be made only with the member’s own credit card (currently, we accept only Visa, MasterCard, American Express). Handling charges of the card issuing institution or bank shall be borne by the member. Should you have any question, please consult your credit card issuing bank.
    2. When your payment is confirmed, a letter confirming the completion of mileage purchase will be mailed to the email address you have specified.
    3. Print certificate of purchase miles
  • Purchase quota and restrictions: Mileage purchase can only be made when the remaining “earned mileage” is greater than the remaining “purchased mileage” in the member’s account. The mileage to be purchased in each transaction shall not be greater than the difference between the remaining “earned mileage” and the remaining “purchased mileage” in the member’s account.
    1. Based on the rule mentioned above, when the purchase quota is more than 1,000 miles, the odd amount smaller than 1,000 will be rounded down unconditionally. For example: Based on the rule mentioned above (the remaining “earned mileage” minus the remaining “purchased mileage”), the calculated difference is 49,900 miles. Therefore, only 49,000 miles can be purchased after 900 miles are rounded down unconditionally.
    2. Members cannot purchase mileage under the following conditions: (1) The remaining “earned mileage” is zero in the member’s account; or (2) The remaining “earned mileage” is equal to or less than the remaining “purchased mileage” in the member’s account.
    3. One membership card number can purchase a maximum of 100,000 miles during 12 successive months.

    3. In addition to the provisions of the Rules, the rules for “Earning/Using Mileage” of Infinity MileageLands also apply for the purchased mileage. If any rules herein are inconsistent with, or conflict with, the rules in the “Earning/Using Mileage” of Infinity MileageLands, the terms herein shall prevail.
