Flying Blue Family Accounts
In March, Air France and KLM’s loyalty program, Flying Blue, introduced the Flying Blue Family Account. This permitted a group of 8 people, 2 adults, and up to 6 children ( under 18 ) to share their miles in a family account. It’s pretty simple to use, the head of the account can transfer miles in/out of the other members accounts once linked.
I just took advantage of it on a last minute booking when I realized I had two separate Flying Blue accounts and needed to merge points. Long ago I had a problem with my account and created another one…apparently Chase was linked to one and Amex to the other. I ended up taking advantage of the 25% transfer bonus from Chase for a Flying Blue booking and realized it ended up in a different account from where I had a small balance. This isn’t the intention of the family account, but it’s possible to use it as I did. Let’s walk through how I linked accounts, and then combined points to make a booking.
Family Account rules:
- 2 Adults
- up to 6 children, under 18
- All members must have Flying Blue accounts
Step 1: Finding Flying Blue Family in your account
Super simple, just drop down the Flying Blue tab once you’re in your account and you’ll see the Flying Blue Family listed as an option
Step Two: Create Flying Blue Family
Super easy…you can see the linked family accounts below and you’d just click transfer miles.
This is a great way for family and friends to combine points. Currently, I’m not seeing an easy way to remove a family member online ( which I’d like to do so I can add my wife’s account instead of my secondary account ) I’ll update this post when I figure that out!
