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 January 1 – June 30, 2022.
Flying Blue members earn a 50% bonus on 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, for example, within the US. However, you earn more XPs on short cross-border flights that are easy in Europe.
You can earn a very reasonable number of XP on business flights within Europe that now earn 22.5 per segment. If you can ticket a return with three-segment both ways, that alone would earn 135XPs.
Here are the terms and conditions of 50% bonus XP offer:
You must be a Flying Blue member to be eligible to the Flying Blue 50% XP bonus. If you are not a Flying Blue member yet, you can visit the Flying Blue website (www.flyingblue.com) and enroll today. Membership is free.
For the purpose of the offer, an eligible flight means an Air France or KLM marketed flight with an Air France or KLM flight number on a ticket where Miles and XP are normally earned, regardless of the route or cabin class.
The Offer is only available on Eligible flights flown, for journeys started and completed between 0.01 AM on 1 January 2022 and 11.59 PM on 30 June 2022 (local departure time and date).
Your Flying Blue number must be recorded at the time of booking or check-in to earn the bonus XP. If a booking involves several passengers, each passenger who is a Flying Blue member must record his/her Flying Blue number to qualify for this Offer.
“50% XP” means you will receive 50% additional Flying Blue XP on all eligible flights and routes as described in the special offer.
The 50% XP bonus does not apply to the following:
- 2 additional XP given to Air France Discount Pass holders on a French domestic flight within metropolitan France.

During what period of time will I earn the bonus XP 50%?

When will the bonus XP 50% be credited to my account?
The bonus XP 50% will be credited to your account along with regular XP, upon completion of your flight.
What happens if I already booked a flight before 1 January 2022?
The bonus XP 50% will be credited for all flights taken between 1 January 2022, 12:01 am and 30 June 2021, 11:59 pm (local departure time and date), regardless of the booking date.

Is the promotion valid for one booking or for all bookings?
The bonus XP 50% can be earned on all flights between 1 January and 30 June 2022. The promotion is not limited to one booking.
What are Air France or KLM marketed flights?
Air France or KLM marketed flights are flights that are booked directly via Air France or KLM (with an Air France or KLM flight number). However, they can be operated by another airline.
How do you calculate the bonus XP 50%?
We always round up. For example, on flights where 5XP are rewarded, you will would earn 2.5XP bonus. However, we will round it up to 3XP, meaning you will earn in total 8XP.
I already benefited from a 100% XP bonus this year, will I also benefit from the bonus 50%?
Yes, and even if you benefit from the 2 promotions within the same qualification period. Benefiting not from 1 but 2 promotions gets you closer to the next threshold or help you maintain.
