sMiles conditions

The sMiles program set up by Air Côte d’Ivoire is a frequent flyer program for regular air passengers. Its purpose is to award its members a credit of miles according to a pre-established scale and in compliance with the conditions and limitations set out in these general terms and conditions, based on the trips actually made on flights operated by Air Côte d’Ivoire. These miles may subsequently be exchanged for award tickets, excess baggage and other types of benefits in accordance with the conditions set out below.
Flights operated by Air Côte d’Ivoire mean flights to which Air Côte d’Ivoire flight numbers (HF) are allocated, whether these flights are operated directly by the airline or according to another formula (code share, etc.).


  • Participation in the sMiles program is free and open to any individual aged 2 years and over, whose usual address is in one of the countries where the program is applicable and who is travelling on Air Côte d’Ivoire flights with published fare tickets.
  • Air Côte d’Ivoire staff and staff of travel agencies or tour operators travelling with free or reduced-fare tickets will not be entitled to receive miles for these journeys.
  • Anyone wishing to join the sMiles program and meeting the required conditions must do so at an Air Côte d’Ivoire agency or with their usual travel agent. Membership can also be done online on our website
  • Any person applying for membership of this programme is deemed to have read and accepted these general provisions.
  • Only one (01) account is required per passenger. This account cannot be assigned, bequeathed or transferred with any other sMiles programme account. In the event of duplication, the various accounts will be merged into a single account to which the member’s activities will be grouped.
  • An individual identification number and a non-transferable password are allocated to each member. The Member will receive documentation on the programme and will have a personal account.
  • Any change of address, name or any other information that may be necessary must be notified as soon as possible in writing, by e-mail or online to the sMiles service. The member guarantees the accuracy of all information provided and will be solely responsible for any erroneous or incomplete information.
  • Effective subscription to the programme occurs when the member’s identification number is used for the first time. The physical card can only be issued once the 1st flight with Air Côte d’Ivoire has been booked. It remains the exclusive property of the company, which reserves the right to demand its return at any time.


1- The mile is the unit of calculation of the sMiles programme.

2- Miles are obtained according to the scale defined for each journey made on Air Côte d’Ivoire flights or those of our partners.

3- A personal account is opened for each member, to which the miles earned are credited. This account, as well as the miles obtained by the member, may under no circumstances be transferred, bequeathed or combined with the account or miles of any other person, whether or not they are participating in this programme.

4- A statement of miles credit is sent by e-mail to the member on a quarterly basis.

5- These provisions apply individually and under no circumstances may members of the same family or company accumulate miles on the same account number.

6- Miles may not be awarded to a member travelling on a free ticket or benefiting from a free service.

7- Miles may be credited to the member’s account for flights and/or services prior to the member’s date of enrolment within a period of 6 months.

8- Miles may not be awarded to a member if Air Côte d’Ivoire flights are cancelled for reasons beyond the control of the carriers (including internal or external strikes, security reasons or force majeure).

9- Each member must personally ensure that the miles they have earned have been credited to their account. If the member claims that the miles have not been credited to his/her account even though he/she has complied with the reporting procedures, he/she must send the sMiles service all supporting documents (copy of boarding pass, reservation/ticket number) within 12 months of the date on which the flight was taken. If the claim is justified, the miles will then be credited.

10- Air Côte d’Ivoire reserves the right to award additional miles on the occasion of specific promotional campaigns brought to the attention of the member in due course.

11- Miles obtained at the end of a trip are valid for 5 years (N+5 end of month) from the date of the trip, unless otherwise communicated to members. Miles earned by the member will be lost if, for any reason whatsoever, the member is unable to take part in the programme. No other person, whatever their title or relationship to the member, may claim these miles.

12- Lost, unused, reimbursed or expired tickets and vouchers do not give entitlement to any miles credit.


1- sMiles rewards consist of one-way or round-trip tickets in Economy or Business class, excess baggage allowances of 10 kg that can be accumulated 3 times, access to the VIP lounge, payment of penalty fees, and any other reward designated for this purpose by the airline or by our partners.

They can request this award via their online account, at an Air Côte d’Ivoire branch by completing and signing the award request form or by contacting sMiles customer service by email.
