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 60 extra XP per year

Platinum Card holders receive 60 extra XP every year. These flights 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. 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 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.

Very comprehensive continuous travel and cancellation insurance*

In addition to compensation for a flight delay or loss of baggage, the Platinum Card provides you with both very comprehensive continuous travel and cancellation insurance and legal expenses insurance by paying with your card. Also includes car rental insurance!
