Air France KLM Flying Blue announced a new family pooling option to the program today. Similar to family pooling programs from Air Canada Aeroplan, British Airways Executive Club and other airline programs, Flying Blue members can now set up a "Flying Blue Family" for up to 8 people to share/pool miles so that it can be easier to get to an award. Learn more about Flying Blue Family here.

With this new online free of charge service, any Flying Blue member over 18 years old can now create a "Flying Blue Family" and invite up to 7 other members. The leader of the Flying Blue Family can transfer Miles from the other members' accounts to his or her own at any time. Miles shared in this way provide faster access to the programme's rewards and offers, so everyone benefits!

"Flying Blue Family" can group up to 8 relatives, with a maximum of 2 adults and 6 children. This service is now available on members' online profiles on the Air France and KLM websites.
