Air France and KLM are merging frequent flyer programmes.
Under the arrangement AirFrance’s “Fréquence Plus” and KLM’s “Flying Dutchman” will be replaced by a single programme called “Flying Blue” from June.
Members of the two frequent flyer programmes will be automatically signed up to Flying Blue and over the coming months they will be informed about the changes by letter.
Members will retain their membership number and miles, with Flying Blue miles being equal in value to the Fréquence Plus and Flying Dutchman miles. Flying Blue will have four membership levels – Ivory, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The scheme has 36 airline partners and 100 non-airline partners with which to redeem and spend rewards.
The merger of the frequent flyer programmes follows the merger of KLM and Air France in May 2004.
