From June 20, members of the Flying Blue and Le Club AccorHotels loyalty programs will be able to enjoy the Miles+Points service, an innovative opportunity to earn points and miles simultaneously while traveling with both companies.

This new, strengthened partnership offers customers more opportunities to earn and redeem and allows both the Air France-KLM Group and the Accor Group to reward their members across more stages of their journey. Clients will earn miles for hotel stays and points for each flight, with 0.5 points earned for each euro spent on flights and one mile for each euro spent on hotel nights. They can also convert miles and points for even more ways to redeem.  

To take advantage of the Miles+Points service, members must link their accounts on www.flyingblue.com or on Le Club AccorHotels website. After registering, they will earn Flying Blue Miles and Le Club AccorHotels Reward Points automatically when flying with Air France and/or KLM or staying in a participating Le Club AccorHotels hotel.

“The partnership between Air France-KLM and Accor has been enhanced for the benefit of our most loyal members,” said Mr. Sebastien Bazin, Chairman and CEO of Accor. “It brings together two formidable players in global tourism and rewrites the rules of loyalty building. The radical transformation of Accor’s lifestyle loyalty program, embodied by the future brand ALL - Accor Live Limitless - will bring to life our ‘augmented hospitality’ strategy and extend beyond mere hospitality and into the day-to-day lives of members. This major partnership will contribute to realizing this promise, leveraging the international footprint of both groups.”

Accor is a world-leading augmented hospitality group offering unique experiences in 4,800 hotels, resorts, and residences across more than 100 countries and territories. With an unrivalled portfolio of brands from luxury to economy, it has been providing hospitality savoir-faire for more than 50 years.

AccorHotels is the biggest international hotel operator in Vietnam, with 6,101 rooms across a wide spectrum of brands. The group will be opening another 13 hotels in the country in the next two years, bringing the total to 41.

Beyond accommodation, Accor enables new ways to live, work, and play with food and beverages, nightlife, well-being activities, and co-working space. To drive business performance, Accor’s portfolio of business accelerators amplifies hospitality distribution, operations, and experiences.
