Upgrade to the next membership level

Flying Blue members upgrade to a higher membership level with XP. 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 XP to the next year, meaning that your XP counter will never be reset to zero.

  • Earn 30 extra XP per year

Gold Card holders receive 30 extra XP every year. These are added to the number of XP that you've already earned, making it easier for you to maintain your current level. You might even earn enough XP to reach the next membership level, where you will enjoy more benefits.


Extend the validity of your Miles

In the Flying Blue programme, your Miles remain valid if you fly with KLM or AIR FRANCE once every 2 years. With every purchase using your American Express Card you extend the validity period of your  Miles counter by 2 years. This way, you are assured of retaining your Miles counter even if you don’t fly for a while.

Share & Fly

Share & Fly lets you share your 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 Miles to you at no charge – and vice versa.

Fly now Pay later

You can now opt to pay for KLM and AIR FRANCE tickets purchased with your Gold Card in three instalments – at no extra expense!* All you have to do is to pay for your tickets with your Flying Blue – American Express card and then access your American Express account online to activate this free option ( , ‘My Account’).

* At a minimum purchase of € 50. Payment will be made in 3 equal, successive monthly instalments. If you do not want to pay in instalments, your purchase of KLM and AIR FRANCE tickets will be debited in full on the American Express account for the current month.

Travel and cancellation insurance*

In addition to compensation for a flight delay or loss of baggage, Gold Card holders benefit from both continuous travel and cancellation insurance by paying with your card.

Payment security insurance*

In case your purchases were damaged or stolen, up to €1400 can be refunded to you until 90 days after the purchase date.
