Qualiflyer General information about Qualiflyer, global airline network

Qualiflyer

Qualiflyer was a frequent flyer program, created in April 1992 by Austrian Airlines, Crossair and Swissair.

When Swissair began acquiring stakes in other European airlines in 1998, Qualiflyer was extended to become their frequent flyer programs as well. This spawned the alliance known as The Qualiflyer Group. With the failure of Swissair in 2002, the group dissolved along with the program and a company was formed to give each former member airline an individual frequent-flyer program.

Currently Swiss International Air Lines, the successor company of Swissair, is participating in the Miles & More frequent flyer program with Lufthansa.
