Flying Blue status match comes back!

Posted on January 22, 2013 by in Travel Deals

Flying Blue has brought back the status match campaign. Any existing Gold status (Top Tier status may suffice, as many are not labeled Gold) with any airline is accepted. The status match is straightforward – the landing page itself provides the upload form.

The status match is only available to members in DK/SE/NO/FI but you may use a friends address in that country before you apply for the match.

What does Flying Blue Gold get you?

You will now automatically benefit from SkyTeam's first alliance-wide service: SkyPriority. Discover the smoothest way to pass through airport checkpoints when flying with SkyTeam airlines. Simply follow the signs with the special label and enjoy all the priority services:

  • priority check-in
  • priority baggage drop-off and handling
  • priority at immigration and security
  • priority service at the ticket office and transfer desk
  • priority boarding

Lounge access

Take time to relax at the airport! Throughout the world, you and your guest enjoy free access to any of our airport lounges.* You can also invite extra guests to join you in the lounges on certain international stopovers. Depending on the stopover and lounge availability, the entrance fee per guest (excluding your first guest) varies.** For more information, please visit the Airport Lounges section of our website.

* When travelling on or connecting to/from an international SkyTeam-operated flight on the same day.

I primarily value airline status for lounge access as many airline operated lounges are much nicer than the Priority Club or Lounge Club lounges. I really like the Skyteam lounge in LHR. It provides a free 20 minutes massage in the spa. And hey a tstaus match is 100% it's free if you have status on any airline. Now I just wish my Aegean Gold card would finally arrive (yes it has been 3 months now)…
