Mileage Calculator

Every time you purchase an eligible fare and travel on flights operated by United Airlines and United Express you earn credit that is deposited into your MileagePlus account for award travel and credit that is applied toward Premier qualification.

Find out approximately how many MileagePlus award miles you can earn on United flights.

Actual mileage posting will be determined by the purchased ticket routing, fare class, Premier status, residency, ticket issue date and flight departure date. The mileage calculator is for estimating purposes only, and currently does not reflect the new mileage earning structure that applies to flights starting in March 2015.

Starting in March 2015, members will earn award miles on most tickets for United and United Express flights based on the ticket price (that is, base fare plus carrier-imposed surcharges), rather than the distance flown. Learn more
