Lufthansa Miles & More axed from Standard Chartered transfer partners list

You can no longer transfer your Standard Chartered credit card points to Lufthansa's Miles & More programme, but the poor conversion ratio always made it a lousy option anyway.

We never like writing about a bank in Singapore cutting back its list of frequent flyer programme conversion partner options, but it does occasionally happen and thankfully in recent times we’ve usually been spared any significant or popular losses.

No major concerns therefore with the latest news that Standard Chartered no longer supports transfers from its credit card reward points into the Lufthansa Miles & More scheme – rarely of interest for most of our readers given its poor transfer ratio at the bank side.


Unfortunately for those who did occasionally transfer or were planning to do so, it means there is no longer a local option available into Miles & More, because Standard Chartered was the only one offering it.

The bank also cut the (largely useless) Malaysia Enrich programme from its list of transfer options back in April 2020.

Miles can also be redeemed on flights operated by Star Alliance carriers (like Singapore Airlines and United), plus some non-alliance partners including Air Astana and Air Malta.

The programme actually has some generous award rates, including the following examples flying one-way in Business Class:
