From June 20th, 2019, Flying Blue members and Le Club AccorHotels members will enjoy Miles+Points. Customers who choose to travel with Air France KLM and Accor Group can accumulate both points and miles with this new program offering.

Miles + Points

Accor Group and Air France KLM Group have upgraded their existing partnerships to bring a double-dipping reward program to the global loyal customer base.

Each time a customer takes a flight from Air France or KLM (including code sharing) or stays at a hotel owned by Accor, they will also accumulate the Flying Blue miles and Le Club AccorHotels reward points.

With Miles+Points you’ll have the opportunity to double earn Flying Blue Miles and Le Club AccorHotels Rewards points simultaneously with each eligible flight taken or participating hotel stay:

When you fly you earn Le Club AccorHotels Rewards points in addition to your usual Flying Blue Miles (2 euros spent on a flight or paid options related to the flight = 1 Rewards point).

When you stay at a Le Club AccorHotels hotel you earn Flying Blue Miles in addition to your usual Rewards points (1 euro spent at Le club AccorHotels = up to 1 Flying Blue Mile).

What’s also new is that you can now convert both your Rewards points into Flying Blue Miles and your Flying Blue Miles into Rewards points, whenever you want. The choice is yours to make the most out of all your earned Miles+Points!

Joining is simple. You have to be a member of both loyalty programmes, then you link both of your accounts and after you’re all set to start double earning Miles+Points and converting them.

Once you’re enrolled and have taken your first flight or stayed in a participating hotel, our way of saying welcome and thank you is by giving you:

Emirates Boeing777-300er

Emirates has announced on 24 September 2020 that it will resume flights to Johannesburg (1 October), Cape Town (1 October), Durban (4 October) in South Africa; Harare in Zimbabwe (1 October); and Mauritius (3 October). The addition of the five points will expand the Emirates’ global network to 92 destinations, as the airline gradually resumes its operations while prioritising the safety of its customers, crew and the communities it serves around the world. 

Emirates’ African network will also now extend to 19 cities.

Customers flying in and out of Emirates’ three South African gateways can safely connect to Dubai and to an array of onwards connections to Europe, the Far East, Middle East, West Asia and Australasia.


  • Johannesburg (1 October) in South Africa;
  • Cape Town (1 October) in South Africa;
  • Durban (4 October) in South Africa;
  • Harare in Zimbabwe (1 October); 
  • Mauritius (3 October).

Emirates will operate to Harare with two weekly flights linked to its Lusaka service. The linked services will connect Zambia and Zimbabwe to key destinations across Europe, the Far East, the Americas, Australasia and West Asia with one convenient stop in Dubai.

Flights from Dubai to Mauritius will initially operate once a week on Saturdays, supporting the Mauritian government’s repatriation efforts to bring its citizens home, and enabling the recovery of the country’s tourism industry by safely connecting leisure travellers from Europe, the Far East and the Middle East to the popular Indian Ocean island destination. 

Customers can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors. Ensuring the safety of travellers, visitors, and the community, COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
