Yes, miles in the Air France/KLM Flying Blue program expiring if you have no qualifying flight or credit card activity on your account for a period of 24 months. You can keep it alive indefinitely by having a qualifying activity on your account within that two-year period.
Per the Flying Blue website, there are two defined activities that will allow you to extend the life of your Flying Blue Miles:
- Take a qualifying flight with AIR FRANCE, KLM, Aircalin, HOP!, Kenya Airways, TAROM, Transavia, Air Corsica or with one of Flying Blue’s SkyTeam partners
- Make a payment with your Flying Blue co-branded credit card
Note: Delta Air Lines is a partner with Air France through the SkyTeam global alliance. You could replace your SkyMiles number on a Delta ticket with your Air France/KLM Flying Blue account number to potentially earn miles and extend the life of the miles in your account.
For US and UK residents, Flying Blue has no co-branded credit cards in those markets. The only Flying Blue co-branded credit cards are with American Express and are available for residents of France, and The Netherlands. Residents of Switzerland have the option for a Flying Blue co-branded credit card with MasterCard.
For US and UK residents there are still some options for transferring credit card points to Flying Blue; while the ratios are not the best and the transfer will not help extend your miles, it is a very handy option if you’re a few miles short, or want to take advantage of some of the great monthly offers from Flying Blue:
- American Express Membership Rewards points transfer over to Flying Blue at a ratio of 1:1
- Members of Marriott Rewards can transfer points over to Flying Blue at a ratio of 3:1. If you transfer 60,000 points you will receive a bonus of 5,000 miles on your transfer. A great way to pick up Marriott points is with the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.
