Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles has a special program for students (both in Turkey & abroad) that provides discounts on Turkish Airlines flights, bonus Miles&Smiles miles and more. The program doesn’t state what level of student you have to be, I would assume college or university but who knows maybe high school and even lower grades of students can join as well. You have to upload proof of being a student like a student card or other document if you are not a Turkish citizen or not studying in Turkey.

Here is what the student program provides:


20% off domestic flights, up to 10% off international flights and special prices on international one-way flights

Baggage Allowance

40 kg on international flights (2*23 kg on flights implementing Piece Concept), advantageous excess baggage fees on domestic flights.

Free Ticket Change

One-time free ticket change right for international flights (fare difference is applied if the new ticket is purchased for a different fare class).

Miles&Smiles welcome bonus

An extra 1000 Miles for new memberships and 2000 Miles in total

Bonus miles on flights

25% more Miles to be earned from all flights by the end of 2022

How to join

  • Create your Miles&Smiles membership or log-in to your account.

Wrapping it up

No matter where in the world you are, if you are a student you should join this program, even if you don’t have any plans on flying Turkish Airlines just yet. As it appears it will take some time to process your application you want to make sure you do have it in place should you make plans to fly on Turkish in the future!
