Air France-KLM Launches Revamped Flying Blue Programme
Flying Blue, Air France-KLM's loyalty programme, is changing as from 1 April 2018 and will offer more simplicity and flexibility, a clearer reward scale and more choice in the use of Miles.
For each euro spent, Ivory, Silver, Gold and Platinum members will receive 4, 6, 7 and 8 Miles respectively. The number of Miles earned will no longer depend on the distance flown, making the accrual of Miles easier and clear.
In addition, customers will be able to earn Miles when purchasing additional services such as an A la Carte Menu on board an Air France flight, additional baggage allowance, or reserving an Economy Comfort seat on a KLM flight. The balance of Award Miles as of 31 March 2018 will remain unchanged on 1 April 2018.
For an ever more personalized offer, booking Award tickets will no longer be limited per flight but offered until the last seat available for sale. The Miles amount needed for a ticket will be based on origin, destination and flight date.
To move from one level to another, Flying Blue is introducing Experience Points, called XP which will determine a membership level as a status will no longer depend on Level Miles and Qualifying flights.
The qualification period for each Flying Blue member will be effective over a 12-month period to gain the XP required to reach or maintain a level. In case of a level upgrade, the level is activated and the qualification period will simply start again.
Flying Blue, the Air France-KLM group's loyalty programme, has 15 million members and 39 airline partners and more than 100 non-airline partners. Flying Blue is also the loyalty program of Kenya Airways, Transavia, Hop, Aircalin, Joon and Tarom.
