Platinum: for an exclusive way of travelling

Flying Blue Platinum is our highest Elite level and is designed for our premium travellers. You will get the highest level of comfort and luxury that we have to offer, and enjoy 100% more Award Miles on your flights.

Requirements to become a Platinum member

Platinum membership is yours as soon as you have reached one of the following thresholds within 1 calendar year:

  •  You have earned 70,000 Level Miles (90,000 in France and Monaco) on flights with one of the SkyTeam partners.

OR

  • You have made 60 qualifying flights with one of the SkyTeam partners.


Please note: a return flight counts as 2 qualifying flights!

Very frequent flyers will find it easy to reach one of the above thresholds. The 60 qualifying flights are easy to accrue when you make a lot of short trips. When your destinations are further away, and you travel in Business Class, you will find out that your Level Miles also quickly add up to reach the milestone of 70,000 Level Miles. You are now ready to be upgraded to Platinum membership and be able to enjoy all those benefits!

Platinum benefits on flights & flight-related services

Platinum members are our world-class travellers. Your Award Miles are doubled every time you fly and you can take advantage of a greater availability of tickets when you book an award flight. Accessing the airport lounges is now free of charge and you also enjoy the best priority services with our SkyPriority treatment: priority check-in, priority boarding, and the highest priority on a waiting list in case a flight is full. Flying Blue Platinum ensures that travelling and delight go hand-in-hand.

Become Platinum for Life

Of course, as a Platinum member you can carry over your Level Miles to the next year, making it easier to maintain your Platinum membership. After 10 consecutive years of being a Platinum member, you are rewarded with a Platinum for Life card. This means that you no longer have to reach the required threshold and that you will continue to enjoy all privileges you are used to, every time you travel.

Good to know

Maintaining your current membership level is now easier than ever. With our Carry over Level Miles option, every Level Mile you earn above the minimum number required to maintain your current level will be carried over to the next year. That way, your Miles balance doesn’t start at zero on 1 January, but kicks off to a good start!
