How to earn Flying Blue miles from UK credit cards

How to earn Flying Blue miles from UK credit cards (August 2022)

Air France and KLM do not have a UK Flying Blue credit card.  However, you can earn Flying Blue miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.

These cards earn Membership Rewards points:

EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Flying Blue miles which is an attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Flying Blue mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.

    Sorry OT:
    Did anyone find out if £50 off £100 spend Amex offer for Club Carlson hotels works with prepaid rates. I would be grateful if someone can confirm as thinking of utilising the offer but flexible rate is too high.

  • Dan says:

    PointsHound had 12 000 Flying Blue miles on a first booking of any value a while before Xmas. That got me free return flight to the UK on a €175 booking 🙂

    Having worked a little stick into you both about the A**s weekend and my A**s competion win, I found myself regretting it all yesterday evening whilst waiting for 1hr 45mins to get the keys for a prebooked car at FUE from said company, and then driving for and hour and a half in the pitch black on an island we’ve never been to! .
