Compare the benefits of all membership levels

Flying Blue appreciates your loyalty. And in return, we like to treat you as a VIP. Of course, the more often you fly with us, the more exclusive the treatment gets. It all starts with Ivory, our first membership level. But you will see it only gets better and better when you upgrade to Silver, then Gold and ultimately Platinum.
