Silver members are recognized by all our partners as priority travelers. With Flying Blue you are therefore ensured of a smooth and quick journey. Our SkyTeam partners offer you a wide range of Elite benefits. Our other airline partners also offer some of these benefits, which you will find specified in the list below.

Enjoy a 50% Elite bonus as standard

Flying Blue

Your Silver membership gives you an Elite bonus* of 50% more Miles for each flight you take with AIR FRANCE, KLM, our partners Air Europa, Kenya Airways and TAROM as well as our other SkyTeam partners.

Check our Miles Finder to see how many extra Miles your next flight could bring you.

* The bonus is calculated from your Award Miles without any Service Class bonus. Elite Bonus Miles do not count as Level Miles.

More award ticket flights

As a Flying Blue Silver member, you benefit from additional award availability in Business class on both AIR FRANCE and KLM operated flights.

  • Elite Award
    The Elite Award is exclusively available on certain AIR FRANCE long haul flights.* This award ticket is available for 115% of the Miles usually required for a Classic Award in the same cabin class.*

    * 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
    In Business Class and First Class, Flex Awards are only available to Elite members like you. This means even if there is no award seat available you can book an award ticket* for an amount of Miles higher than those required for the Classic Award on flights with AIR FRANCE, KLM and our partners Air Europa, Kenya Airways, and TAROM.**

    * 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.

Carried over Level Miles

Get your year off to a flying start – make your Level Miles go further by carrying them over to next year.* Instead of resetting your Miles balance to zero, Flying Blue Silver members can now start the year with a positive account, as Level Miles earned above your level threshold will be saved after your Annual Level Check. This makes it easier for you to retain your current membership and achieve enough Level Miles for an upgrade!

* You must have made at least one Qualifying flight during the year.
