As part of our continued commitment to protect the environment and move to a fully digital experience, Ethiopian will be phasing out the use of ShebaMiles physical cards by December 2022. Membership cards will be fully digital to provide you with a safer and convenient experience.
Your digital card is available on the ShebaMiles website and Ethiopian mobile app for Android™ and iPhone® which can be stored to your Apple Wallet or any Android Wallet Passes app or directly to your device’s gallery to easily access your membership number whenever you fly and use the services of our non-air partners.
You download your ShebaMiles digital membership card to enjoy all your membership privileges.
Effective April 01, 2022, this change will be implemented to all bookings made with Ethiopian and partner airlines flights. These changes include;
Importantly, with this change, while there will be an increase in the number of miles required to redeem for flights, you can also expect to enjoy a relaxed policy in the amount of miles you can buy to top up your balance in case your current balance is short of the required number of miles to book your next award.
ShebaMiles members will continue to earn Status Miles while flying on our Star Alliance partner airlines. However, such flights won’t be counted towards tier Qualifying Segment. ShebaMiles members will continue to get tier Qualifying Segment when flying on Ethiopian international flights.
To recognize and reward members for the type of fare paid, tier Qualifying Segments count for economy class will be calculated based on the existing percentage multiplier for each booking class. This change will be in effect as of January 1, 2022. Refer to the table below for the current percentage multiplier by booking class.
|Class of Service||Booking Class||Percentage Multiplier|

|Booking Class/Fare Class Paid||H|
|Applicable Booking Class Multiplier||50%|
|Number of segments for flight routing||2|
|Number of Tier Qualifying segments to be counted||1 (2 x 50% = 1)|
