How to book
To earn miles on KLM:
Book your KLM flights directly online and remember to add your Flying Club membership number.
When claiming miles please keep all copies of your original tickets/e-tickets and boarding passes until the correct amount of miles appear on your account. If the miles do not show on your account within six weeks, please contact us to claim them back.
The small print
Miles for these bookings will be credited according to the operating carrier, not the marketing carrier.
Codeshare services that are marketed by Delta Airlines and operated by Air France/KLM also earn miles. The miles will be credited as per the operating carrier.
Miles may only be earned on flights operated by Air France, KLM, Joon, Hop and KLM Cityhopper. Miles earned retrospectively can only be claimed for up to 6 months after the date of travel. Miles will be issued to Flying Club members when travelling in the qualifying international classes listed.
Tiers points will only apply if a flight qualifies for miles.
If you're a member of one of our partner airlines' frequent flyer programmes, please note that you can only earn miles in one scheme for any particular flight.
Additional miles will not be earned for bookings that are subsequently upgraded to a higher class whereby an additional fare difference is paid.
When flying on KLM and booked in operating class X and O you will not be eligible to earn miles.
Spend your miles on our KLM reward flights. All miles shown in the tables below are for a one-way flight. If a journey requires a connecting flight or stopover to reach the destination, miles are charged according to origin and destination. All prices are subject to taxes, fees and carrier imposed surcharges.
