How Can I Transfer Miles To Flying Blue?

You can transfer miles from every major flexible credit card currency including American Express Membership Rewards Points, Chase Ultimate Rewards Points, Citi Thank You Rewards Points, and Capital One Miles. Most transfer at a 1:1 ratio. Check with each individual program as some occasionally have bonus’s for transferring.

In addition to credit card points, you can also transfer partner hotel miles to Flying Blue, but I would avoid doing that as, the transfer ratios aren’t that great.

AccorHotels2,000 Le Club Points*1,000 Award Miles
Hilton Honors10 Honors Points*1 Award Mile
World of Hyatt1,250 Gold Passport Points**500 Award Miles
IHG Rewards Club10,000 Rewards Club Points2,000 Award Miles

Hurry! The “Promo Rewards – Special Edition” is up for a limited time only. Seats are limited, and redemption availability is on a first-come-first-served basis.
