Flying Blue

Flying Blue is a frequent flier rewards program offered by Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Flying Blue members enjoy the ability to earn and spend air mileage points on flights and services offered by Air France, KLM, and its various airline partners. Some notable partners being Delta Air Lines and Korean Air.

Flying Blue also offers other ways to spend your points with select travel and transportation companies for things such as car and hotel rentals. Award miles can be used to purchase discounts, upgrades, gifts, donations, and free flights.

Flying Blue offers several different levels of membership dependent on how often you fly and how many mileage points you have accumulated. The levels in ascending order are Ivory, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. As one increases in membership level they receive increased perks such as first class promotion on flights and extra baggage allowances. Members also are allowed entrance into SkyTeam lounges.

Members must fly on a paid flight at least once every twenty months or their miles will expire. The Flying Blue loyalty program is a great way for frequent fliers and travelers to get a little bit more out of their Airline travels.
