Which ST airlines membership valid for two-years instead of one year?
 
I know most of airlines membership programs are valid for one year in cycle. Iím wondering if there is an airline from ST that offers the two years timeline for renewal the membership? For instance there is TK from SA, that the member earns 25,000 Status Miles in the first year or 37,500 Status Miles in the two-year membership period could maintain the membership.
Thanks for advice.

CI Dynasty Flyer.

The initial accumulation period is 1 year. Once met, the membership lasts 2 years. The renewal is also 2 years.

a quick search through the terms and conditions of all the ST FFPs can give you an answer

besides what was mentionned earlier by garykung , i can add "Egret miles" from xiamenair (MF)

You earn status in 12 months but have 24months to renew it

More details here = https://ffp.xiamenair.com/en-US/_Egr...VipMember.html

Thanks to you i discovered that some ST airlines recently changed (or will soon change) their FFP's rules , many have 5 levels instead of 4 and in general the requirements/thresholds are quite disparate among members

But i would recommend to do a brainstorming and a deep analysis of many variables before you decide which program to select , cause its not as simple as "how long it is valid" or "what program has lowest requirements"

There are lot of traps and details you need to be aware of , so either ask questions in thread dedicated to the FFP you are interested to (Alitalia, Korean Air, Delta, Airfrance/KLM have their own sections) or if it doesn't exist yet , in the general Skyteam thread

not to my knowledge. The calculation of the XP and UXP is done seperately, the XP rolling over 12 months and the UXP strictly over a 2-calendar year period. The UXP counter does not show up when you are Gold, that's true, but as soon as it appears you see the UXP collected over the 2 calendar years.

At Platinum level, you can achieve something similar to a two-year (or multi-year) qualification period with the XP roll-over feature of FB. For instance, if you accumulate 600 XPs in one year, you will have de facto qualified for two years of Platinum status as your status will be automatically renewed twice with deduction of 300 XPs each year.

thanks for explanations and tips , but i guess it will not fit OP's needs , as reaching platinum require already to go over 2 thresholds before , and UXP requirements are too high for what it is
