The Lufthansa Miles & More Credit Card will in the future be issued by Deutsche Bank, the airline group has announced.

Mastercard remains partner for the cards. In a global tender, both companies prevailed in the bidding process. The switch will take place in mid-2025.

Christina Foerster, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, said: “I look forward to working with strong partners to offer our customers even better and more innovative services. In the Lufthansa Group, we are continuously expanding our premium offering – far beyond the actual flight.

“Long-term and trusting customer relationships are fundamental to this. Together, we will continue to develop Europe’s leading loyalty programme – for our customers around the world.“

Miles & More Credit Card

“Miles & More has one of the leading credit card portfolios in Germany and Europe. We are delighted that Lufthansa is relying on Deutsche Bank’s payments expertise and reach for this growth product. We have a strong position in Germany in the business of issuing credit cards. Through Miles & More, we will further advance our important payments business as part of our growth strategy as a Global House Bank,“ said Christian Sewing, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Deutsche Bank.

“Mastercard has significant, long-standing partnerships with Deutsche Bank, Lufthansa Group and Miles & More. Together, we will make the future of travel more sustainable and optimize it with technical innovations. And we will use our momentum to do even more for Miles & More members,” said Mastercard CEO Michael Miebach.
