Use Frequent Flyer Progam For Your Fligt To Wales!

We are delighted that you are considering joining one of our popular boat trips this year! On our tours, we will take you to see some of the most spectacular breeding colonies in Britain. Departing from St Justinians there are many interesting areas to discover during your stay in Wales. Many of our visitors come back each year to see the nature of our islands and joining a frequent flyer program can be a great idea. In this article, we have summarized some of the benefits of the program Flying Blue. 

FLYING BLUE is the frequent traveler program established by KLM and Air France. This network has expanded through partnerships with Air Europa, Kenya Airways, Aircalin, TAROM, and the SkyTeam. The network consists of more than 1,000 destinations and 18,000 daily flights.

Participants can sign up online via the KLM web site. Miles earned are credited to an online account and can be used for award tickets to various destinations as well as other offers. Miles can be purchased and used as gifts for friends or to top off one’s own account and qualify for a special trip. 

The program consists of four membership levels: Ivory, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Each level offers specific benefits and privileges, which increase the higher you go. This includes priority treatment in lounges, guaranteed reservations on long-haul flights, exclusive check-in counters, and discounts or special offers from non-airline partners. Silver is classified as SkyTeam Elite status, while Gold and Platinum are designated Elite Plus.

Types of Miles

 

There are two kinds of miles that can be earned. Award miles are exchanged for free travel and other considerations, while level miles are accumulated to determine a traveler’s membership level in the program. Miles can be earned on most flights taken with Air France, KLM or any other SkyTeam airline partner. You can only earn miles on flights taken by you personally. The number of miles you earn varies according to distance flown, ticket fare and class of travel.

To ensure miles are received and credit to the account, travelers are encouraged to always mentioned their Flying Blue number when making a reservation and checking in at the airport.

Award miles are earned with Air France, KLM, Air Europa, Kenya Airways, Aircalin, and TAROM as well as other SkyTeam partners. Miles are valid for life as long as at least one flight is taken every 20 months. Level miles are earned through the same carriers and are valid until Dec. 31.

As a Flying Blue Elite (Silver) or Elite Plus (Gold and Platinum) member, you benefit from a special bonus on the award miles you earn – 50 percent more for Silver, 75 percent more for Gold and 100 percent more for Platinum. 

You can earn miles by shopping at any of a large number of online retailers. Retail categories include:

* children/family

* clothes/fashion

* department stores

* entertainment/leisure

* food/drink

* gifts/flowers

* health/beauty

* office/business

* travel 

Miles can be spent with any of the SkyTeam partners for all types of flights. The number of award miles needed for a particular flight will vary depending on the flexibility of your travel dates and the conditions of the award ticket. Miles can also be used for upgrades and lounge access to make the travel experience more enjoyable. 

Redeeming for Tickets

 

Miles can be redeemed for travel via several kinds of awards. A Classic Award ticket can be acquired for any destination and is transferable to any beneficiary. It may be canceled or modified for a fee. It is possible to combine flights of Air France, KLM and any partner airline on the same ticket. A Classic Award one-way ticket may be purchased for half the price of a Classic Award return ticket from Air France, KLM, and all airline partners. 

A Flex Award ticket can be purchased on a flight even if no seats are available for Classic Awards. Flex Award tickets can be changed or canceled free of charge. The number of miles for a Flex Award ticket is higher than what is required for the Classic Award in the same cabin.

With Promo Awards, you save between 25 and 50 percent on the Award Miles usually required for a Classic Award ticket to certain destinations in the same cabin class. Promo Awards are available for limited periods and exclusively online. It is not possible to change or cancel Promo Awards. 

When you are on your free or discounted flight, you can relax by playing your favorite casino games online via your mobile device. Even when up in the air, there are ample opportunities to play at the same sites you are sign up to at home. When you are using a casino referral site online you get access to all manner of new online casinos with free bonuses too. Signing up at the start earns you access to things like welcome bonuses, which often take the form of a matched percentage. That matched percentage could be 100% which indicates that whatever amount you deposit first, is matched by 100%. These are sometimes called deposit bonuses too. In such cases they give you access to a lot of free spins or free games in addition to that match bonus, so you can easily fill your entire flight with a range of free games and extra bonuses.
