WestJet Rewards & Air France-KLM Flying Blue announce reciprocal frequent flyer agreement

The time has come for the teaser news we have been alluding to in lots of our WestJet Rewards posts in that you expect another partner to come on board with WestJet Rewards! As of today WestJet Rewards is now partnered with Air France-KLM Flying Blue!

Passengers can now accumulate their choice of Flying Blue Miles or WestJet dollars on all WestJet, Air France, and KLM flights

“The ability to earn Flying Blue Miles or WestJet dollars on Air
France-KLM will bring significant benefit to guests of all three
airlines,” said Ed Sims, WestJet
Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “We are confident that our members
are going to love earning WestJet dollars while flying on the extensive
Air France-KLM global network, and we are equally excited to welcome
their frequent flyers aboard and offer them the opportunity to earn
Flying Blue Miles on the growing WestJet network.”

This is great news to the continued expansion of WestJet Rewards and even for Canadian Flying Blue members as they can now earn miles on domestic flights within Canada, to the U.S. and more.

Here are the WestJet Rewards earn rates for flying on Air France or KLM:

Overall this is great news for members in both programs and it will just get better when redeeming WestJet Dollars for Air France or KLM flights becomes an option by the end of the year and vice versa for Flying Blue!
