Air France Livery

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:

SAS Launches Transfer Testing Solutions At Copenhagen Airport

Published

on

SAS A350 Livery Rear View


The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.


More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.

Extra Check-in Baggage For Students Fly From China

Scandinavian Airlines are now launching very attractive one-way tickets from China. All students departing from China who purchase SAS flight tickets in economy class only need to show a valid student ID at the airport check-in counter to check in one extra piece of luggage. This means that students travelling in economy class (except for Go Light) can carry two pieces of checked luggage, each of which must not exceed 23 kg. The free extra baggage check will be done manually at the airport check-in counter.
