Update to earning on flights

Starting July 11, 2024, we’re updating the way you earn AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points on flights depending on where you book. Learn which flights earn miles and Loyalty Points and which do not.

Our partnership with GOL Airlines

GOL Airlines is the largest airline in Brazil and a leading carrier in South America. When you fly on GOL Airlines, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles, plus, enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage® status.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on GOL Airlines marketed and operated flights and GOL Airlines codeshare flights operated by American Airlines.

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket.

When you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles for travel on GOL Airlines, you’ll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward qualifying for AAdvantage® status.
