How does it work
Flying Blue in short
In short? It has never been easier to earn Miles for Award tickets, upgrades, hotel and car rental packages and many, many more great offers. Every time you fly with KLM, Air France, Kenya Airways, Air Europa, other members of SkyTeam, you earn Miles. Even when you keep your feet on the ground, you can earn Miles with our non-airline partners in the Flying Blue programme. It’s that simple. You just take care of the spending part. Have a good flight!

Award Miles and Level MilesYou can earn two kinds of Miles: Award Miles and Level Miles. Award Miles add up to great offers: from Award tickets to hotel and car rental packages. Your Award Miles are valid for only 20 months. After this period, they expire. But you can extend this period of validity by booking a paid flight on AIR FRANCE, KLM or one of the SkyTeam partners at least once every 20 months. Flights booked with Award Miles will not count toward extending the period for which your Miles are valid. Level Miles take you to a higher level in Flying Blue’s membership: from Ivory to Silver, Gold or Platinum. Every year Level Miles are put back to zero in the level check at December 31st.

How to earn MilesFor most miles flown with KLM, Air France, Kenya Airways, Air Europa or any other member of SkyTeam, you are rewarded with one Award Mile and one Level Mile. If you choose to fly with one of our other airline partners, most miles flown are rewarded with one Award Mile. The total number of Miles credited to your account depends on the distance of your flight and the class you travel in. There is a minimum of 500 Classic Award and Level Miles on most tickets for domestic flights. On most tickets for international flights, we offer you a minimum of 750 Classic Award and Level Miles. Award tickets, Air Miles tickets and other similar tickets are not eligible for Miles. Tickets in some classes may earn fewer or no Miles. For more information, please consult the relevant pages of the Flying Blue airline partners. If you want an accurate estimate of the number of Miles you can earn with a specific flight, please use the Miles Finder.
There are also plenty of Miles to earn on the ground, with a huge number of non-airline partners such as Marriott, Hilton, Hertz and American Express. For a full list of our non-airline partners, click here.

Your Level Miles remain valid until the 31st of December in the year you have earned them. That does not mean you cannot reach a higher level before that date.
