Flying Blue is innovative reward program run by KLM for its loyal passengers. You can join the program for free and start accruing Miles for every flight that you take with KLM or its partners like Air France. There are two types of reward points: award miles, which you can exchange for new tickets, products and services and level miles, which will get you closer to increasing your membership level. Members with higher levels get exclusive discounts and additional bonus points. Starting level is Ivory, but you can soon advance to Silver, Gold or Platinum level if you are a frequent flyer. Every threshold guarantees you different perks. Ivory membership means that among others, you will receive 10% discounts on certain upgrades. With Silver level, you’ll get extra check-in baggage allowance and 25% discount on selected upgrades. Gold members can enjoy priority boarding and 50% discounts on selected upgrades, whereas Platinum members will be glad to hear that their award miles will double with every flight. And you’ll want to fly frequently once you reach Platinum membership, because you won’t have to pay for airport lounges, you’ll get priority service and the best comfort options that KLM can offer.
