  • Miles Overview

    Flying Blue: Four levels, dozens of benefits

    Flying Blue appreciates your loyalty. And in return, we always like to treat you as a VIP. Of course, the more often you fly with us, the more exclusive the treatment.

    It starts with Ivory, our first membership level. But over time, you might want to take it a notch higher with an upgrade to Silver, Gold and then ultimately - Platinum.

    How your membership level is determined?

    The number of Level Miles you have earned or the number of qualifying flights you have made determines your tier:

    • You can earn Level Miles on most flights taken with Kenya Airways, Air France, KLM or any other Flying Blue partners.
    • A qualifying flight is a one-way flight made with a SkyTeam airline, which enables you to earn both Award and Level Miles.

    You earn Award Miles when flying with KENYA AIRWAYS, AIR FRANCE, KLM or any  other Flying Blue partners.

    It's very easy to earn them: you simply mention your Flying Blue number while booking. And if you forgot to do so, you can still claim your missing Miles within 6 months. Flights with AIR FRANCE, KLM and our SkyTeam partners also earn you Level Miles. They will help you maintain and upgrade your membership level.

    For more information about the specific accrual schemes of AIR FRANCE, KLM, and other Flying Blue partners, please visit the airline partners overview

    How to upgrade your membership level
    Every level has a threshold: a certain number of Level Miles or qualifying flights a member needs to reach in order to upgrade to the next level. The table above shows the thresholds for each level. As soon as you reach the next level`s threshold of Level Miles or qualifying flights, you`ll be upgraded and get to enjoy the new benefits straightaway!

    How to maintain your membership level
    On 31st December of each year, your Level Miles and qualifying flights balance from the previous 12 months is checked. This is called the annual level check. To keep your membership level, you need to have reached either of these two thresholds:

    • Minimum number of Level Miles specified for one calendar year, or
    • Required number of qualifying flights specified for one calendar year
