With AIR FRANCE, KLM and SkyTeam
Use your Award Miles for all types of flights. Whether your priority is price, flexibility or a particular cabin class, you will find an award ticket to suit you. The number of Award Miles you’ll need for each flight varies depending on the flexibility of your travel dates and the award ticket’s conditions. From upgrades to lounge access, you can use your Award Miles to make the most of special services that give you that little bit extra.
|Type of award||Usage|
|Classic Award||You can use your Award Miles towards an award ticket to any destination you choose. The Classic Awards scheme is used by AIR FRANCE, KLM and all our partners, which means you can combine several flights on the same ticket.
For AIR FRANCE and KLM flights, as well as those of our SkyTeam partners, Aircalin and Malaysia Airlines, you can purchase a one-way award ticket* for half the price of a round-trip award. Please note that on flights with other airlines, Classic Awards are for round-trip tickets only**. You may cancel or modify a Classic Award; however a fee of € 45 will be charged.
* Stopovers are not permitted on this type of ticket. One-way award tickets for domestic flights inside France can be booked online only. Award tickets are not available for some code-sharing flights.
** Booking award tickets is based on the availability of seats in the cabin concerned. Please bear in mind that airport and security taxes and carrier imposed international surcharges on long-haul flights are not covered by your Miles and must be paid separately.
For more information, please contact the Flying Blue Service Centre.
|Elite Award||The Elite Award is reserved exclusively for Flying Blue Silver, Gold and Platinum members. This award ticket is available for 115% of the Miles usually required for a Classic Award in the same cabin class. The Elite Award is exclusively available on certain AIR FRANCE long haul flights.*|
* Reservations for award tickets can be made based on the availability of specially allocated seats. Please bear in mind that airport and security taxes and carrier imposed international surcharges on long-haul flights are not covered by your Miles and must be paid separately.
|Flex Award||With AIR FRANCE, KLM and our partners Air Europa, Kenya Airways, and TAROM, you can book a round-trip award ticket* on the flight of your choice even if no seats are available for Classic Awards. The Flex Award lets you book an award ticket for an amount of Miles higher than those required for the Classic Award.**|
* Booking Flex Awards is based on the availability of seats on the chosen flight. Only Flying Blue Elite members can use Flex Awards to fly in First Class or Business Class. You cannot use Flex Awards for upgrades and Round-the-World awards or for award tickets on franchised or code-share flights. Flex Award tickets can be exchanged or re-credited free of charge.
** Please bear in mind that airport and security taxes and carrier imposed international surcharges on long-haul flights are not covered by your Miles and must be paid separately.

|Upgrade award||With an upgrade award, you can use your Miles to enjoy the comfort of Business Class when flying with AIR FRANCE*, KLM and most of our SkyTeam partners. You can also give an upgrade award to anyone you choose, even if you’re not travelling with them.
Upgrade awards are subject to availability and on a per-flight basis. They are available only for full-fare reservation classes.

* On AIR FRANCE flights with La Première cabin, Flying Blue Elite and Elite Plus members can also use their Miles to request an upgrade from Affaires to La Première, with a maximum of one upgrade per flight (upgrade from Voyageur to La Première is not possible). Flex Awards do not apply.
** You can request an upgrade at the airport on the day of departure for all KLM long-haul flights, Delta Air Lines flights to Mumbai and selected Kenya Airways flights departing from Amsterdam.
|SkyTeam upgrade award||SkyTeam upgrade awards are available on all SkyTeam airlines (except Alitalia). You can also give an upgrade award to anyone you choose, even if you’re not travelling with them.|
|Access to lounges||Our lounges are specially designed to satisfy all your needs. Many are fully equipped with Internet access, so you are able to get down to business, check your personal e-mails, or simply enjoy a little online entertainment. Flying Blue Silver members can use their Award Miles to pay the entrance fee, while Flying Blue Gold and Platinum members may use their Miles to pay for the lounge access of extra guests.
