Transavia has made booking your tickets with Flying Blue Miles on transavia fligths even easier. Travellers can now book their tickets with Flying Blue Miles on the website of the airline company.
At Transavia, innovation, ease, and user-friendliness are the top priorities. Making the use of Flying Blue Miles even simpler is par for the course. While it has always been possible to book tickets with Flying Blue Miles through the call centre, now you can make bookings on transavia.com as well. ‘We are opting for optimum simplicity,’ says Roy Scheerder, the Commercial Director of Transavia. ‘In the booking window on our website, passengers can indicate that they would like to see the ticket prices in Flying Blue Miles instead of euros by ticking a box. This allows you to pay for your ticket with your Miles and makes flying with Flying Blue Miles incredibly easy.’ Airport taxes, any surcharges, and additional costs such as seat reservation and extra luggage must still be paid for in euros. This feature on Transavia.com is available throughout Europe and also offers passengers the possibility to check the status of their Miles in addition to making their booking.
Easy to use and always accessible
Transavia also offers plenty of choice. The Flying Blue Tickets are not linked to any particular booking class and they are available without any restrictions. ‘You can even book a one-way flight with Flying Blue Miles and pay for the return flight in euros,’ explains Scheerder. ‘This was a deliberate choice on our part. Ease of use and accessibility are top priorities at Transavia and this option allows us to make flying with Flying Blue Miles a lot easier for our Flying Blue members, including those who haven't saved quite so many Miles. You can book a ticket from 5000 Miles upwards.’ Passengers can use their accumulated Flying Blue Miles on all flights offered at transavia.com, whether these are for city breaks, summer holidays, or winter sports holidays. You can choose from flights to over one hundred destinations.
Improvement for Flying Blue members
Flying Blue is also very happy with the new possibilities to spend Miles offered by Transavia. Frederic Kahane, Vice President Customer Loyalty at Air France KLM comments: the new online possibility to spend Flying Blue Award Miles on transavia.com greatly enhances the options for our Flying Blue Members. It enables them to browse through the wide variety of destinations from/to France and The Netherlands that Transavia offers at attractive rates in Flying Blue Miles. Airline tickets can be purchased with Award Miles within minutes. The partner portfolio of the Flying Blue programme has been enriched by the joining of Transavia. ’
Earning Flying Blue Miles
In 2014, Transavia joined Flying Blue, the loyalty programme of KLM and AIR FRANCE. As of May of this year, our passengers can also earn Flying Blue Miles on flights that depart from or land in the Netherlands. ‘The number of Flying Blue Miles that our customers earn is connected to the type of ticket that they book. Passengers with a Plus fare ticket will earn 250 Miles for a one-way ticket and 500 Miles for a return ticket. If you book a Max fare ticket, you will earn 500 Miles for a one-way ticket and 1,000 Miles for a return ticket,’ says Scheerder. The number of Miles that you earn is linked to the type of ticket that you purchase, regardless of the distance to the destination.
