Last week I wrote about the Lufthansa Oil & Energy Club. This offers special benefits to people who work in the oil and energy sector including Silver (Frequent Traveller) status in the Miles & More programme.
The KLM / Air France programme, Flying Blue, has a similar scheme – Flying Blue Petroleum.
Full details can be found here on the KLM website.
The Flying Blue scheme does not give you status across the whole of SkyTeam. However, the benefits – for someone flying out of Paris or Amsterdam – are interesting.
The benefits could be handy. As well as dedicated check-in counters and priority boarding, you can access the KLM Crown lounge at Schiphol and the AIR FRANCE lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
As with the Lufthansa scheme, membership is FREE if you work in the oil and gas sector so it is well worth a look.
