Through the Air France/KLM and Accor Hotels “Miles + Points” partnership, travelers can earn Accor Live Limitless (ALL) points for Air France/KLM flights and Flying Blue miles for Accor stays. Although this isn't a new partnership, we haven't yet covered it here on AwardWallet. So, we wanted to share it now to make sure you're maximizing your earnings.

Air France/KLM and Accor Hotels “Miles + Points” Partnership

In June 2019, Air France and KLM Airlines teamed up with Accor Hotels to allow members to earn points for both rewards programs when flying with either airline or staying at participating Accor Hotels.

All you need to do is pair your Flying Blue (Air France/KLM rewards program) and Accor Live Limitless (ALL) accounts, and you'll automatically start earning points and miles.

You can link your accounts either through the ALL Rewards or Flying Blue websites. Simply log into your account, and then use the module provided to log into the other account. Once you're logged into both accounts using the module, you can link the accounts. Both accounts must be registered with the same name (first and surname).

Earn Accor Points for Air France/KLM Flights

For every 2 euro (€2 ≈ $2.40) you spend on Air France and KLM flights, you will earn 5 ALL Rewards point.

Earn Flying Blue Miles for Accor Stays

For every 1 euro you spend at participating Accor Hotels, you will earn to up 10 Flying Blue miles, depending on the hotel brand:

  • Earn 2 miles at Adagio Access Hotels
  • Earn 4 miles at Adagio Hotels
  • Earn 5 miles at Ibis, Ibis Styles, and Mama Shelter Hotels
  • Earn 10 miles at all other Accor Hotels

This can be a great way to get activity in your Flying Blue account and push out the expiration of your Flying Blue miles.

Convert Points Between Programs

You can also transfer points between the rewards programs. However, the conversion rates are poor and I wouldn't recommend doing it unless you are desperate for the points in the other account:

  • Convert 2,000 ALL Rewards points into 1,000 Flying Blue miles (minimum 2,000 points)
  • Convert 4,000 Flying Blue miles into 1,000 ALL Rewards points (minimum 4,000 points)

ALL Rewards points take 10 days to transfer to Flying Blue miles, while Flying Blue miles convert to ALL Rewards points instantaneously. Both transfers are non-reversible.

Earning Status Nights and XP

Once you've linked your accounts, a.k.a. participated in the Miles+Points program, you will be eligible for additional bonuses. After you take your first flight with Air France or KLM, and/or stayed at your first Accor Hotel, you will earn:

  • 5 XP credited to your Flying Blue account, and
  • 1 Status Night credited to your ALL Rewards account

You'll get this “welcome gift” for each action. In other words, you receive both the XP and the status night twice — once for the flight and once the hotel stay.

Accor Flying Blue Miles+Points welcome gift

If you withdraw from the Miles+Points program and then resubscribe, you will not be eligible to receive these rewards again.

Youboox Launch Offer

At the time of this writing, 150,000 new Youboox subscribers and 50,000 Youboox active subscribers (members who've logged into their account in the past month) will receive a free 6-month subscription for Youboox. At the end of the free 6-month period, they can renew their subscription with a 50% discount.

Our Take

I just signed up for Flying Blue this year myself, as my flight from Scotland to Cancun via Paris was with Air France/KLM. While the transatlantic plane was far from comfortable, the Flying Blue rewards program was good. Also, Air France does have some good advantages, such as launching the first flight last week with eco-fuel (waste cooking oils).

Getting both miles and points together without any further work than signing up is a great deal. Are you a member of both rewards programs, and will you be taking advantage of the Miles+Points promotion?

  • Excelentes noticias, sobre todo en los viajes a Europa, hay que sacar provecho de esta oferta

  • As I don’t accumulate a lot of Accor points, I prefer having the authomatic transfer with Iberia so to avoid the expiration of Accor points.

  • This is great for Europeans and those state side that go to Europe. These partnership have also been done here in the States like Hyatt and American Airlines.

  • Ana Maria del Rosario Valencia says:

    This is great news, ’cause it has been always rather difficult to prevent our Flying Blue miles from expiring. I will be flying to France next week, and so…

  • Excelente oportunidade!

  • fernanda andrade says:

    Converting points between programs is unfavorable. But it can be useful to complete a specific award ticket.

  • Have they ever run the double-dip promotion before?

  • until last year (pre covid) this had been one the best way to extend my FlyingBlue miles expiration since I used to have atleast one stay in a year at some Fairmont. I’m glad that this is still available after Accor “updated” their program to ALL. Hope the continue to keep it.

  • I read somewhere a while ago that there was going to be some sort of a partnership between Qantas and Accor due to launch later this year. I wonder will it be along similar lines to this Air France/KLM partnership.
