Upgrade to the next membership level
Flying Blue members upgrade to a higher membership level in two ways: with Level Miles or with Qualifying flights. As soon as you cross the threshold to Silver, Gold, or Platinum membership, you become a Flying Blue Elite member. Elite members benefit from extra advantages, including an Elite Mileage bonus and the option to carry over Level Miles to the next year, meaning that your Level Miles balance will never be reset to zero.
• Earn Level Miles with your Flying Blue – American Express Platinum Card
You will earn Award Miles on all purchases done with your Platinum Card. When you use your Platinum Card to purchase a ticket or another product with KLM or AIR FRANCE, you also earn Level Miles which will count towards determining your membership level during the Annual Level Check.
• Earn eight extra Qualifying flights per year
Platinum Card holders receive eight extra Qualifying flights every year. These flights are added to the number of Qualifying flights that you've already earned, making it easier for you to maintain your current level. You might even earn enough Qualifying flights to reach the next membership level, where you will enjoy more benefits. And as a Flying Blue Platinum member, the Platinum for Life status appears on your horizon even faster.
Platinum for 2
Have you reached the Flying Blue Platinum membership status? Then choose the Flying Blue – American Express Platinum Card. Your partner will receive an additional card and be able to benefit from all the privileges. What's more, he or she will also automatically receive the Flying Blue Platinum membership status. (Please note that gaining Platinum membership in this way does not count towards reaching the Platinum for Life status.)
Platinum Lifestyle Service
A table in your favourite restaurant in Milan? Tickets for a Broadway show? Or a good bottle of wine for a business associate? Platinum Lifestyle Service will make the arrangements. Save the number in your phone and have more time for doing business from now on.
Share & Fly
Share & Fly lets you share your Award Miles with any supplementary card holders on your American Express account. Earning together is a quicker, more efficient way to your next award ticket. Your additional card holders can transfer (part of) their Award Miles to you at no charge – and vice versa.
