COVID-19: what measures have been taken to preserve your miles and status?

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Flying Blue has put in place several measures to reassure its members, in particular to preserve the validity of their Miles and their status.

Press release dated December 4, 2021:

In line with previous measures:

  • Extension of the validity of Miles for all Explorer members until the end of 2022. All miles expiring by the end of November 2021 will remain valid until December 31, 2022.
  • Renewal of status for all Elite members whose qualifying period runs from now until June 30, 2022.
  • As in 2020 and 2021, the XP surplus of Elite members is topped up (whose qualifying period runs from now through June 30, 2022) to match last year's surplus, if less. This way Elite members maintain or improve their status. The extra XP will be added the month after their new qualification period begins.
  • As countries gradually reopen their borders, it's time to plan your next trip. For any Air France, Aircalin and KLM flight between January 1 and June 30, 2022, you will automatically receive the 50% XP bonus. Enough to maintain your current status more easily or reach the next level faster.
