Air France – KLM has today launched an offer to Flying Blue members to keep their current status or reach a higher one for flights taken between July 1 – December 31, 2021.
Flying Blue members earn double Experience Points, usually referred to as just XPs, for Air France and KLM marketed flights regardless of who operates them. There is no registration required for this offer.
You can access this offer on Flying Blue’s website here.
XP Earnings Table:
The number of XPs you earn is dependent on the length of the flight and whether it is within one county.
You earn the same number of XP regardless of the flight length if it is, for example, within the US. You earn more XPs on short cross-border flights that are easy in Europe.
BE TWICE AS HAPPY TO FLY AGAIN
As countries progressively reopen their borders, the moment has arrived to explore the world again! No matter where you choose to go, gain twice the amount of XP you would normally get on all Air France and KLM marketed flights taken from 1 July 2021 until 31 December 2021. Make your bookings now and easily maintain your current status or take the fast track to your next level upgrade!
Despite the ever-changing travel restrictions, we invite you to learn more about the commitments Air France and KLM made to guarantee you to book with the utmost confidence! You can find it on the airline’s websites.
I have earned 265 XPs so far this year on exclusive on AeroMexico domestic flights in business and one long-haul ticket (read more here) from Europe to South America to Mexico. When I have flown this ticket, I am close to 400 XPs.
You can earn an incredible number of XP on flights within Europe that now earn 30 XPs each in business class. If you can ticket a return with three-segment both ways, that alone would earn 180 XPs.
I will write more about the Flying Blue program tomorrow.
Here is the frequently asked question by Air France – KLM:
Am I eligible for the double XP promotion?
All Flying Blue members worldwide are eligible for the promotion, no exceptions. If you are not a Flying Blue member yet, you can visit the Flying Blue website (flyingblue.com) and join today. Membership is free. Each passenger in the same booking must be a Flying Blue member and submit their Flying Blue number to qualify for this promotion.
Do I need to register for the promotion to get double XP?
Flying Blue will automatically credit the double XP to your account, upon the completion of each flight. Your Flying Blue number must be submitted at the time of booking or check-in to earn double XP, but you don’t need to register separately for the promotion.
During what period will I earn double XP?
If you take any eligible Air France or KLM marketed flight (with an AF or KL flight number) between 1 July and 31 December 2021, you will get double XP. If you take several flights in that period, you will enjoy the promotion several times.
When will the double XP be credited to my account?
The double XP will be credited to your account along with the regular XP of the flight, upon completion of your flight.
