Flying Blue loyalty program
When joining the Flying Blue loyalty program, it is easy to earn and use Miles with Aircalin and over 72 partners. Your Miles are automatically credited to your Flying Blue account and allow you to earn an “Award ticket” to your favourite destination or enjoy the numerous offers that are exclusive to Flying Blue members.
The Flying Blue program has 4 membership levels: Explorer, Silver (also called Elite), Gold and Platinum (also called Elite Plus).
Each gives access to specific advantages and privileges. Your membership level is determined by the number of earned Experience Points (XP). The more you travel with Aircalin and the airline partners (Air France, KLM, Alitalia, Korean Air, Vietnam Airlines, Garuda…), the faster you will achieve a higher membership level and enjoy exclusive advantages.
When travelling on Aircalin flights*, you enjoy the following Flying Blue advantages:
- Experience Points (XP) earning, which allow you to reach a higher membership level (Silver, Gold or Platinum)
- Miles earning that can be redeemed for reward tickets, upgrades and excess baggages
- Bonus of Elite to earn extra Miles for Elite (Silver) and Elite Plus (Gold and Platinum) members
- Exclusive travelling conditions for Elite Plus (Gold and Platinum), Club 2000, Platinum for Life and Ultimate Platinum members

Example of Miles Accrual Calculation
To calculate the Miles earned:
- Distance travelled in miles X Booking Class earning percentage.
If you qualify for an Elite Bonus, you get additional Miles as follows:
- (Distance travelled in miles X Booking Class Earning percentage) X Elite Bonus earning percentage.
This latter is applied to the distance multiplied by the Booking Class earning percentage. When calculating this Elite Bonus, the Booking Class earning percentage is capped at 100%.
Once you have earned a certain level of Miles, you can redeem them for the following awards:
- Award tickets on Aircalin's network, on Aircalin, Qantas or Air New Zealand operated flights
